Rehearsals this week
So far we have had a great start to our school year and season. This week we begin our normal practice schedule. A great way to stay updated with the schedule is to sync the calendar to your smart phone.
- Monday – 3:45 – 6:15
- Open House begins with a parent meeting in the Mabry Arts Center at 5:30PM. Students will be able to join you at the conclusion of rehearsal to show you around the school to meet their teachers and take a tour of the school. The facilities are BEAUTIFUL! If you haven’t had a chance to walk through the school, tomorrow is a great opportunity.
- Tuesday – 3:45 – 6:15
- Thursday – 6:00 – 9:00
- Band Parent Orientation this week – see below
All student paperwork should be turned in to Ms. Dothard by now:
- Behavior Contract and Commitment Form
- Medical Release Form
- Trip Release Form
- Student Contact Information Form
- Voluntary Release, Waiver, and Assumption of Risk
We will be speaking with students individually about their forms if we have not received them. It is very important that we have this information on file, especially as we approach our first football game, which is at UWG on August 30.
Band Parent Orientation
We are hosting a Band Parent Orientation Night for first-time band parents on August 8, 2019 from 7-8PM in the Band Room. It is a great way to meet other band parents and to learn how to be more involved and what to expect this upcoming marching band season. We hope that you make plans to attend.
*** Remind – IMPORTANT PLEASE READ ***
As of July 23, 2019 – Remind101 has started a new marketing plan and has stopped service to organizations larger than 150, without a paid subscription. Additionally, in a recent meeting teachers were advised to begin stream-lining all similar communication (similar to Remind) to the Infinite Campus communication feature.
Please double check your information in Infinite Campus and make sure your contact information is updated.
We are fortunate that our students may receive Health and PE credit for full participation in marching band. More information regarding this process may be accessed by following this link https://chstrojanband.com/health-in-band/. Many of our students are making great progress towards completing the online requirements for the health portion of the class. If this pertains to your child, please help to check up on their progress. There is an option in the Google Classroom for them to invite you to receive notifications. Since it is a course that allows them to work at their own pace, oftentimes it can be out of sight and out of mind, causing the students to fall behind. The best way for them to avoid any extra stress is to stay ahead of the deadlines to complete the course well before Thanksgiving Break. Thank you for your assistance with this.
We use a lot of water throughout the season! In an effort to keep the costs down for our booster club we respectfully request donations of 4 cases of bottled water. If you would prefer to not purchase the bottled water, then would you please donate $10 so that we can purchase the cases on your behalf? We use the bottled water when our band travels to away games and when we feed our students meals throughout the season. Many of you have actually already brought in some cases of water, THANK YOU SO MUCH!
SYNC YOUR CALENDAR
The Charms Calendar is syncing again. Syncing your calendar with the band calendar is a great way to stay informed of the schedule. You can access more information through the links above (If you hover over Calendar, Sync Calendar becomes an option), or just click here.
Do you shop on Amazon? Use Amazon Smile (Smile.Amazon.com) and select our band to support our students while you shop. It’s the same site but allows you to choose someone to receive a portion of the sale. If you already support someone on Amazon Smile, thank you for giving back. If you haven’t chosen someone through Amazon Smile, we would be honored if you chose the Carrollton High School Band Booster Club Inc. Thank you for all that you do for your child and all of the children in our community! Carrollton is the best place to live because it is full of people like you!
