Happy Halloween – Looking At The Week Ahead

1525184_300511906822929_7826814099258231513_nHappy Halloween Trojan Nation! As our regular football season comes to a close this Friday, we will be celebrating our Seniors at Senior Night! We are so proud of each and every one of them and hope they enjoy what could be their last marching performance inside Grisham Stadium. At this point we do know that the Trojans will be playing in the GHSA football playoffs this year, but we are not 100% sure who or where they will be playing, so please stay tune! On a side note, depending on how far the Trojans go, we could still be playing football into the second weekend in December! So please let Mr. Carr know if your family has already planned to be out of town the Friday of Thanksgiving, otherwise, if we are still playing at that point and you are in town, you are expected to be at the game.

Senior Night “After Game Band Hangout” at American Pie Pizzeria, Carrollton

After Friday’s game, we will have an “After the Game Band Hangout” at American Pie Pizzeria in Carrollton in honor of our Seniors. American Pie will be opening the restaurant after next Friday night’s game (11/4/16) specifically for the Carrollton Trojan Band from 9:30pm until 11:00pm. All Trojan Band students and supporters are invited to come and celebrate our seniors, unwind, and enjoy some great food and fun. Students will need to bring money if they plan to eat, $10.00 should be plenty, and make their own arrangements for transportation to the restaurant and then home. Please make sure students are picked-up promptly at or before 11:00pm. This activity is completely optional.

Concert Season Reminders

  • Students who did not order new concert uniforms need to make sure they can find everything and that it still fits.
  • Our first concert is next Tuesday, November 8th, at 7pm… Yes, election night 🙂  So please take advantage of early voting so you don’t miss the concert!
