Trojan Band Update Week of 11/4/18

Chili Cook – Off Big Success!

Thank you so much to everyone who volunteered and made our inaugural chili-cook-off a success! Many students commented that this is their favorite concert that they have participated in so far and many parents mentioned that they enjoyed their evening as well. What a fun way to bring everyone together and allow our students to showcase what they have been learning during class!

Friday night was an outstanding night celebrating our seniors. Our team won 50-0 and we had a spirited dance party in the band room following the game. This senior class continues to lead our band program to new heights through their composure and class. I am so glad that there are still plenty of events ahead to enjoy and celebrate our seniors.

Hollywood Trip


The trip is approaching quickly!

Travelers will be allowed to check 1 bag and bring 1 carry on on the flights. Marching Uniforms and Instruments will be loaded on the trailer on Saturday, November 17. Mr. Antico is driving our van and trailer to Hollywood for us. If you see him, please give him a great big HIGH 5 or a hug and say THANK YOU! We are so blessed that he continues to volunteer for our band program. Thank you Mr. Antico for the support that you provide all of us! We love you!

There will be a MANDATORY pre-trip meeting for EVERYONE (parents and students) traveling to Hollywood on November 15th at 6 PM. Please make sure to put that date and time on your calendar. This has been on the Charms calendar for quite some time. If you use your phone/computer calendar please sync the Charms calendar to your device and you will always have the latest information on our band schedule.
