“Never Stop Improving” is the tagline for the national home improvement chain, Lowe’s and our local Lowe’s, located at 1665 Highway 27 South, Carrollton, GA 30117, puts this phrase to action in it’s support and commitment to our community. Recently Lowe’s of Carrollton donated enough cotton waist aprons for every member of the Carrollton Trojan Marching Band for the 2014 season. The students use the aprons to keep their dot cards, notes, pens or anything else they may need while out on the field practicing their show.
The students, band staff and Band Boosters would like to send out a very big thank you to Lowe’s of Carrollton for their support of our band program and for inspiring our students to “Never Stop Improving!”
The CHS Trojan Band family honors and remembers the victims, the families and our nation… forever changed by the events of September 11, 2001.
As this week gets underway we just wanted to remind everyone that this is an open week on the Trojan’s football schedule, so there is no game and no band activities scheduled on Friday (9/12/2014). So enjoy a well deserved Friday off!
Also, we have added a few new areas to our website. Under the ‘About’ area of the Navigation Bar you will find links to our photos albums and videos on YouTube. We will keep these areas updated as we receive new media from time to time. Additionally we added some information and a log in link to our new Student Management System, Charms. To find out more about this system and/or log in, please visit the ‘Charms’ area of the Navigation Bar. (see screenshot below for clarification)
Lastly, please be on the look out for announcements regarding or upcoming annual All-In-One fundraiser, due to launch September 25th, 2014. This is a very important fundraiser for the Band Boosters and we need everyone in the trenches with us! So get ready and get fired up to sell some quality fruit and meat to support our band students and staff.
There are lots of other exciting things on the horizon as we continue to press forward… so stay tuned in and connected! If you haven’t taken advantage of all of our means of communication, please review this older post on how to stay informed: CHS Communication Options
Thanks for all you do and have a great week!

I just wanted to make a note about a new page that I posted. More information can be found here: https://chstrojanband.com/practice-materials/district-honor-bandall-state-band/ which is linked on our home page under “Practice Materials.”
District Honor Band(DHB) and All-State(AS) sign-ups will be taking place tomorrow and Friday during class. Auditions for District Honor Band cost $15 and auditions for All-State cost $20. If a student would like to participate in both auditions then the cost is $35. I am asking for $15 for DHB to help offset the cost of bringing in extra help during the school day to better prepare our students for the auditions. The breakdown of that cost is $5 for the audition and $10 towards the mini lessons with experts. There is nothing added the All-State cost.
Please take a moment to visit the page for DHB/AS and encourage your child to participate. This is a wonderful way for our students to grow individually, which in turn will make our band better.
I look forward to seeing everyone at the meeting tomorrow evening at 6:00PM! Have a great evening!
