Month: March 2015

Winter Guard Season Comes to a Successful End

FloridaComboThe CHS Winter Guard has worked countless hours to put on their production entitled Sweater Weather, which encompassed high tosses and stunts only a group this talented could bring to life.

During the month of March the girls performed every weekend, including regional competitions at Winter Guard International (WGI) Atlanta and WGI Pensacola, each time maintaining a finalist position. These successes paved the way to the Southern Association for Performance Arts (SAPA) Championships in Chattanooga, TN where they were crowned the 2015 Scholastic A Silver Division Champions!

SAPAI could not be more proud of this group of girls. They have worked very hard to pull off a very demanding program and their final run was one to be remembered. Yet none of this could be possible without the support of our director, Mr. Carr, and the parents and volunteers that help to haul our props and equipment to and from every show. We just want you all to know that you are truly appreciated.

Congratulations to the 2015 CHS Winter Guard!
I am so proud to have worked with you.

Carrollton Community Says “Yes” to School Improvements

YESThank you to the Carrollton community for the overwhelming support of the bond referendum that will allow for many improvements for Carrollton City Schools in the coming years.

For more details about the referendum and the vote we offer this short article by our friends at Gradick Communications.

Carrollton Voters Approve Bond Referendum
Construction of a larger high school to accommodate the growing number of students entering the Carrollton City School System could begin as early as this August after Carrollton voters overwhelmingly supported the school system’s plan to issue 25-million dollars worth of bonds. The preliminary idea for the project is to construct a multi-story building which could be ready for use by August of 2017. The new school building should hold about 2,000 students.

Close to 1100 Carrollton residents answered yes to the question — whether general obligation debt of the city system in the amount of $25 million be issued for the purpose of providing funds for capital outlay projects within the system. Less than 200 voted against.

The question also listed projects including renovations and an expansion to the Carrollton Junior High School gym; HVAC replacements at Carrollton Elementary School; and a system wide modernizing of technology.

The city schools district will now borrow on the funds anticipated from the future SPLOST — to be voted on in November by all Carroll County residents.

System Supt. Dr. Kent Edwards has said there would be no effect on local school taxes if both the bond and special purpose local option sales tax (SPLOST) referendums pass this year or if the bond passes and the SPLOST is only delayed.
