Inspired Performance Leads The Band Into Another Exciting Week

inspiredWhat an incredibly inspired performance Saturday at the Yellow Jacket Classic in Rockmart!  Undoubtedly there were people who left there changed by your performance and I am incredibly proud to be your director!  Thank you for being so dedicated to our program.  It is not easy sometimes because everyone has very busy lives and so many priorities, but I appreciate you making this a priority and giving it your all.  This is our last week of our competitive season and I am looking forward to finishing strong!

All-In-One Fundraiser Turn-In Night

Please don’t forget about our All-In-One fundraiser! This is the final week of the fundraiser as all orders and unused sales materials are to be turned in this Thursday from 5pm-7pm at the band room. Students and boosters, please do your part to support this fundraiser by selling your share. Also, don’t forget about our new incentive program where we will have drawings for three separate $100 gift cards for students selling at least 10 items! Once a student reaches 10 items sold,  they will get another entry into the drawing for every five additional items they sell… so the more you sell, the more chances you have to win a gift card!

As always, if you have any questions, please make sure to contact Mr. Carr at: christopher.carr@carrolltoncityschools.net, the Band Office at 770-834-0550, or the Band Boosters at: chstrojanbands@gmail.com.
