Good Morning Students and Parents,


It has certainly been an interesting start to the school year! I just want to take a moment and let you all know how great it is to see the students in class (even if it is over Zoom) and resume some of our normal activities. I hope you all have an enjoyable Labor Day Weekend and please stay cool (116 degrees is the forecast for Sunday!).


Please see the music program announcements below:


CUT TIME --- Program Management Software


The WRHS music program has switched from using Charms to a new program management software called Cut Time. Later today you will be receiving an email inviting you to login to this program. First, please know that this program is completely safe and it is me who is sending you this email (it is not spam). When you have a chance, please login to the program and update any applicable or missing information on your account (most information was pre-entered for you based on your child's registration in the late spring).


Once into the program you will see many features available to you, including:

  • A new and improved financial information section that clearly shows all donation and payment information for students. You also now have the ability to click a "make a payment" button, which will take you directly to our secure web payment page. From here you can make all donation payments in a safe and secure fashion.

  • A new and improved calendar with many new features that we will be rolling out once our activities further return to normal.

  • The ability for students to submit instrument repair requests electronically.

  • All electronic communication from me will soon be coming from Cut Time. When you see this name, know that it is the WR Music Program. 

There is much more to this program and as I become more familiar with it I will roll these features out to students and parents.


In the meantime, please just click on the link in the email that you get to enable your account.




A huge thank you to the families who have already submitted their music program donations! For those who have paid, you can see a record of your payment in Cut Time. 


For those who still need to make donations, you can do this in one of two ways now. The preferred method NOW, is to login to Cut Time and click the button within the financial ledge to make a payment. This will take you to our secure payment page where you can select your donation and make a payment with a credit card. 


The other option is to go through our webstore on our music program website. Here is a link to that page where you can select all appropriate donations and pay online.


Our program goal is to have all donations paid by September 30th. Thank you all again for your amazing support of our music program!


Chipotle Food Fundraiser --- Monday, September 14th!


While many of our traditional fundraisers cannot take place right now, we have been having huge success with our food fundraisers over the last several months! This month we are at Chipotle where they are donating 33% of our group's sales back to the music program. To participate all you have to do is order from Chipotle on Monday, September 14th between the times of 5pm and 9pm. Orders can be done in person or ONLINE. If ordering online, there is a code to use at checkout listed on the attached flyer. For those ordering in person, please just display the attached flyer for us to get credit.


Please note, the Chipotle location for this fundraiser is: 28102 Newhall Ranch Road, Valencia (this is the location close to Valencia HS). 


I hope to run into some of our families that evening while I am there picking up dinner!


Thank you all for your continued support of West Ranch Music!

Mr. Marshall
