The Week Ahead – Jan. 15-21, 2018

Happy Sunday!  I hope you are having a fantastic weekend and staying warm!

Thank you to all that attended the Hollywood Trip meeting this past week!  We had a fabulous turn out and we learned about our upcoming trip to California. Just to recap, the trip will be November 23-27, 2018. The cost of the trip is not completely final because airfare prices have not been released by airlines. We feel a realistic estimate is $1750 and a final number will be made available as soon as possible.

We do have one change to the information provided, ALL trip deposits will be collected by the Band Boosters. We are working to collect your credit card payments through revtrak, cash and checks can be turned in at the band room. Please remember to put your payment in an envelope with the names of those the deposit is for and the amount enclosed!  Deposits are due January 26th!

The Carrollton Martin Luther King, Jr. Parade is on Monday, January 15, 2018.  The Trojan Band will represent our community by marching in the parade.  Here is our itinerary for the parade.

Mr. Bright has started a Basketball Pep Band for interested students.  Volunteers will perform at a couple of basketball games this year to cheer on our Trojans on Criswell Court.  Students will get in free to the game and have a chance to visit concessions between games for dinner.  Our first game is January 16, 2018.  Students should wear blue jeans and their show shirt to the games.  Report time is 5:00PM to the band room and we should be done by 9:00PM.
