Homecoming Week!



WOW, what a game! Although the score didn’t end up the way we had hoped, it was a win in many aspects. So proud of our football team for fighting every minute of the football game, our band and cheerleaders showing their support, and OUR FANS showed their support by cheering, shaking, and believing in our team! It was a fun game to be a part of! Thank you to all those that came out to help the band and cheer on the mighty Trojans! A special THANK YOU to, Brad Jackson, for donating Gatorade and Powerade to the band! We appreciate your kindness and generosity!!

So, this time of year is crazy busy and it is easy to feel a bit overwhelmed.  But, we will have fun together getting it all done! We have football games, competitions, fundraisers, and our Legacy of Champions band competition! I am tired just listing those things out! This will be a long post with lots of details and events, but don’t skip over it or skim it (I know we all do that sometimes!), you need to be informed and prepared!

Can you help?

The CJHS band is asking for donations of black band polos and Trojan band shirts from past students. If you have any items to donate to Junior High band please bring them washed to Ms. Dothard’s desk. Thank you so much.

I know that some of you have always dreamed of helping on the field during our show, well, now you can! There are 4 props that need to be moved during the show (2 people per prop). If you are interested in working with these props, please send an email to barryandmer@bellsouth.net. It would be best if the volunteers could help at ALL the games and competitions, as you will need to learn what needs to be done.

We will be meeting this Monday and Tuesday (9/17 and 9/18) from 5:00 – 6:15 pm to paint the props. We will meet at the house behind the band room, affectionately known as the “Castle”.

All-In-One sale kick off!

Thursday, September 27!!!

It is time to begin our All in One sale!! This is a long standing, and always highly anticipated fundraiser for the Carrollton High School Band! It is a fruit and meat sale, students will sell and collect money at the point of sale. Money and order sheets will be turned into the boosters and the purchaser will be responsible to pick up their order on November 16th or 17th at Tabernacle Baptist Church. This is an important fundraiser and we hope to see ALL of our students participating by selling!!! ALL students (band and guard) are EXPECTED to participate in this fundraiser. If you choose not to participate in the fundraiser, you are expected to make a $100 donation to the band boosters. I know this sounds harsh, but you can’t expect someone else to take up your slack just because you didn’t want to ask people to buy some fruit or meat. I know that it may be out of your comfort zone, but our community is kind and the band has a fantastic reputation, which makes our job easy to get people to buy from us!

Water Donations

It is hot and that means our band is consuming a lot of water! It is time for those water donations. Each member of the band (which includes the guard) is asked to donate $10 or 4 cases of water. If you are paying by check, please make it out to the CHS band boosters. You can also pay online at: https://chstrojanband.revtrak.net/trojan-band-water2/

Thank you for your help! The kids appreciate it! We take waters to every game and competition, so we need LOTS of water!

Legacy of Champions

Our competition, the Legacy of Champions (10/13/18), will be here before you know it and we need to make sure we get all of the volunteer spots filled. If you haven’t signed up yet, please do so as soon as possible so we can continue to prepare knowing this is all taken care of. Remember, all band students are required to work the entire day and parents/band boosters are expected to work at least one volunteer shifts during the event, but highly encouraged to commit to working the whole day.

The success of our event takes the support and efforts of ALL of our parents/boosters. So please take a moment and visit our volunteer page: https://chstrojanband.com/volunteer/. The most important part is to just be involved, so please take time to sign-up today!

There are also sign-ups for donating food and lending equipment! Don’t miss out on a opportunity to make a huge impact for our band!
