Homecoming and Competition Week! Go Trojans!

IMG_9376.jpg

Last week was a full but fun week! Our students performed their show last Tuesday night for a packed crowd at the County Exhibition and were met with a standing ovation!  We received so many compliments on their performance.  It was definitely their most energetic performance to date and we are looking forward to continuing their journey this week.

Thank you to everyone who participated in our Homecoming Kick-Off tonight!  The kids sounded great and it was a lot of fun.  It is always so great to see our community working together for our students!  We have homecoming this week and our first competition this Saturday! The good news is we get most of next week off! Yay for fall break!

THE TIME IS NOW!

If you have been waiting to get involved, looking for that opportunity to sign up, seeking out a way to make a difference… THE TIME IS NOW!

With our Legacy of Champions Marching Band Competition approaching quickly… WE NEED YOU more than ever! Yes, YOU… our Trojan Nation students, alumni, family, friends, staff, faculty, and community supporters. So please look at all the opportunities below and see how you can make a difference.

As we continue to prepare for the Legacy of Champions that takes place on October 12, 2019, we desperately need you to get involved! We also need your help with ATVs, golf carts, trailers, and fulfilling volunteer duties the day of the event. Please see below for details about each need.

ATVs, UTVs, & Trailers

These motorized vehicles & trailers will be used for hauling the equipment for the various bands that will be performing at the competition. We can use either four wheelers, utvs, etc. These vehicles will need to have a trailer hitch for pulling a trailer. We are in need of 10-12 or more of these vehicles.

We also need trailers to place the equipment on. These will need to have a ramp that can be lowered. The size we can use would be 6′ wide by 12′ or less long, due to restrictions of gate sizes at the stadium. We are in need of 10-12 or more of these as well.

If you have any of these items and can lend them for the day, please visit our volunteer page by clicking here

Volunteer Opportunities

Did you know that volunteering at the Legacy of Champions is actually expected of all of our boosters/parents? This event is such a huge undertaking and is becoming one of our top fundraisers. 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: Click Here and review all of the various sign-ups available for the event. There is a large variety of volunteer positions available.

HEALTH CLASS

Students participating in the health class should be completed with the eADAP course from the GA Department of Drivers Services. Please double check with your child to verify that they have completed that course and submitted a certificate to me either in person or a PDF via email. This is the most important aspect of the class as it qualifies our students to apply for their drivers license. Once they have finished the eADAP course online, then they complete the 9 Unit exams via Google Classroom and they are done. Due dates are listed in Classroom to allow students to complete the class before their semester becomes too hectic. I will be lenient with the due dates so long as all coursework is completed and turned in by the Thanksgiving Break. Thank you for your assistance in keeping your child on track.


HAVE YOU SYNCED YOUR CALENDAR?
