What a Night!

What a night! I just want to thank everyone who made last night such a success. Feeding 600 people in any amount of time is a spectacle, and our family fed them in under 45 minutes! Did I mention that we fed this many people in addition to continuing to prepare for our home opener? Incredible job with the logistics last night! Alabama was welcomed with the red carpet, Newnan was welcomed with the red carpet, and we still provided for our students flawlessly. Impressive! If you had any part in making last night successful, I appreciate you. From parking trucks and buses, serving the masses, passing out uniforms, preparing our stands, working put crew, participating in pulling the flag, cheering for our kids, and cleaning up afterwards. Thank you! It was very cool to see how organized our family was, to be assisted by our football boosters and the grill master in preparing the food (he asked to be anonymous- but you know who he is) and to be supported so well by our administration. Members of our CHS, our transportation department, and CES worked hard for us to secure facilities and welcome our bands. Alabama was impressed and so was I. You guys should be very proud! I know that I am. Then our kids put on a fantastic night of spirit in the stands and effort during halftime! It’s only going to get better!
God bless! Have a restful holiday weekend. Students: no school on Monday. See you on Tuesday.
Extremely proud of our ROCKSTARS! Mr. Carr

Thanks to Our Band Booster Parents and Supporters

imagesNow that we have all showered and had a nap after our early start and blistering hot day, we just wanted to say how grateful we were for all the support that has been present as we start our 2014 season, especially over the last couple of days as we prepared for our game at McEachern High School today. It was great to see so many new faces among us as we all worked to support our students and staff. We work hard but we also have fun and make lasting friendships that only make the experiences that much more rewarding. So if you haven’t had a chance to pitch in yet, don’t worry… there are plenty of opportunities just around the corner as each week brings new events and challenges. We look forward to seeing you in the trenches!

Thank you again for all you do!

Great game this morning!

Our Trojans fought hard this morning and we all had a great time at the game. Thankfully, we were the first game! I cannot imagine having to face the heat for the next few games.

I want to congratulate everyone on a fantastic first game. You’ve worked hard and it showed!

Parents: we arrived at Stevie Bs a little later than anticipated. The kids are filling up on pizza and we will be leaving here at 1:45. This will put us back around 2:45pm. See you soon!!!!
