Band Jacket Personalization

Many have asked about having student’s names added to their new band jackets. If you wish to do this, you can to take them to Ozier Apparel and they will ad their name for $5. By taking them to Ozier, who produced the jackets originally, we can ensure that our new band jackets, which are part of official uniform are homogeneous. * Please note, Ozier Apparel has moved off of Maple Street. They are now located at: Avenue C, Carrollton, GA 30117

Spring 2017 New York Trip Accounts

IMPORTANT REMINDER: We are reaching a critical time in the life of our trip as our travel company will begin making non-refundable purchases on our behalf within the next 30 days, so we have to ensure that those signed-up are fully and financially committed to the trip. This is also important because we also have to ensure that we have the trip funds available to make our regular mass/group payments to the travel company. So it is imperative that you are making your monthly payments and staying current with your trip accounts. Just to give you an idea of were you should be to this point, you should have paid $850.00 towards your trip so far, leaving a balance of $450. If this does not describe your account, please expect a call from one of the members of the Trip Committee soon to discuss your account/intentions.

Still to come later in the week…

Later in the week we will be posting details about:

  • Our All-In-One Fundraisers – We have some exciting news about a new student incentive program.
  • Legacy of Champions details – We will have a post to detail the event schedule, volunteer information, and news.

Thank you again for your continued support of the band program.

As always, if you have any questions, please make sure to contact Mr. Carr at:, the Band Office at 770-834-0550, or the Band Boosters at:
