If you have not brought your donation of water, please try to do so this week.
- (Monday) Final Band Fee Payment Date: If you are utilizing the 3 payment installment plan, the final Band Fee payment date is Monday, July 28th. Band fees can be paid directly to Mrs. Dothard, at the CHS Band Room by cash or check (make checks payable to Carrollton High School Band). New this year… you can pay the base fees via the school’s online payment system which is located on the high school’s homepage, in the upper right corner. http://chs.carrolltoncityschools.net/ Once you click on the “Online Payments” button it will take you to a new screen where you will see a “Band Fees” icon. Simply click on the Band Fees icon and follow the directions. IMPORTANT NOTE: Only marching band fees can be paid via this particular online system. PLEASE do not attempt to pay your Disney Trip payments through the school’s online system
- If you are unable to pay your Band Fees in full by this date, there is an opportunity to make monthly or even weekly payments if you need to do so. To establish an extended payment agreement, you will need to complete the Carrollton High School Trojan Marching Band Payment Agreement Form. This form is also available in the back of the 2014-2015 CHS Band Handbook. Provide this completed form to Mrs. Dothard as soon as possible.
- (Tuesday) CHS Trojan Business Day: Tuesday, July 29th, 2014. Students are assigned various times that are to report to the high school cafeteria to take care of varies items in preparation for the start of school on Aug. 11th. Students are asked to handle their business as expeditiously as possible so that the disruption to band camp activities are minimized.
- (Friday) Trojan Night: August 1, 2014 • 6:00PM
Trojan Night is a preview performance of the marching show and a way for the students to show what they have learned during the band camps. This is a beginning of the season family celebration, which includes great entertainment and a good meal. All parents and guardians, please make every effort to attend this great preview.
