It was a beautiful, successful, fun-filled, exhausting, and amazing day on the campus of Carrollton City Schools for our Trojan Band as we hosted the 4th annual Legacy of Champions! Thank you to all our students, staff, parents, and volunteers for your enthusiastic service! What a privilege it was to serve so many band students from band programs across our state. Thank you for your concerted effort in showing terrific customer service and leading the way to a memorable experience for all of our guests. Congratulations to Milton High School for being named Grand Champions and receiving the Legacy Sword!

Next year’s LoC will be held on October 12, 2019.

8th Grade Night

Friday night was so much fun having our 8th graders join us! Their enthusiasm and excitement added energy and fun in the stands! Unfortunately, the officials didn’t enjoy the extra volume that we were able to perform with, that is there loss. So proud of our students cheering on our Trojans. Although it was a tough loss, we have 2 more exciting games ahead of us. Thank you, Ms. Menendez for your leadership with these awesome kids. We can’t wait to have them join us next year!


All In One Sale

I know that we have all had a busy few weeks and maybe you haven’t been able to get out and sell as many items as you would like, so we will extend the sale until October 25th! Band Boosters will be available from 6-9 pm to receive your forms and payments in the band room that evening. Please get busy! Visit your neighbors, ask your co-workers, call band alum and ask them to support the Trojan Band! This year it is even easier for people to pay for their fruit and meat. Payments can be made on the CHS Trojan Band website at:


Customers will still need to pick up their orders, but they will be able to order and pay online! How convenient!
