Trojans 8-0! Competition Nov. 2?

Trojans Win! Contest TBD!

While the weekend did not end the way we were hoping, we did get a chance to cheer on our Trojans on to a crucial region victory over Kell High School. Our students performed with spirit and energy for the entire game providing an electric atmosphere for the game. It was such a fun game! Saturday was a washout and left us a little disappointed, but we are looking to see if we will attend the rescheduled contest on November 2. Mr. Carr is meeting with the seniors tomorrow morning at 7:45 am to receive direct feedback from them since the rescheduling will affect the rehearsal and performance schedule as well. A decision will be made very soon – if you haven’t let Mr. Carr know of any conflicts on Nov. 2 at this point, please do so this evening (christopher.carr@carrolltoncityschools.net).

Concert Attire Fittings

As marching season starts to wind down, that means we will move into concert season.  This means that your student may need to be fitted for their concert attire. Freshman students will need to be fitted.  Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors can be fitted as well if you feel it is necessary. The fittings will occur on Monday and Tuesday of next week.

  • Girls will be fitted on Monday, October 21 at 6PM in the Band Room
  • Boys will be fitted on Tuesday, October 22 at 6PM in the Band Room

We have been informed that the cost for the concert attire will be higher than in years past, but we do not have the specific costs yet.  We will inform you once we have the cost.


Pasta-palooza – Next Monday Night (10/28/19)

Next Monday night, October 28, 2019, from 6 – 8PM, our Jazz Band, Percussion Ensemble and Chamber Music students will be performing in the CHS cafeteria. As a part of this concert, we would like to have parents sign up to bring their favorite pasta dish, desserts and drinks to this concert. You can sign up to bring something by clicking here (if all items have been signed up for, please bring whatever item you like). We look forward to this event as to allow our students to show all of their hard work that they have been doing outside of the marching show. Also, this is a great evening for us, as a band family, to come together and enjoy hearing our students perform and enjoy some food and fellowship. Now here are some details for this evening.

When looking to bring desserts, please bring desserts that do not need to be cut or sliced such as cookies, pre-cut brownies, etc. When signing up for drinks, please bring 2 2-liters or 2 1-gallon drinks. The boosters will be providing the cups, plates and plasticware for the evening. The cost for the event is $10 per person or $30 per family.

The Band Shoppe will be set up at this event, so you will be able to purchase a show shirt, one of the new “I’m With The Band” shirts and you can even go ahead and order any of our spirit items that your student might want for the holidays.


All-In-One Turn In!

We had several people asking about if there is still time to turn in their All-In-One packets. The answer is “YES!” However, we need you to turn them in on Monday so that we can place our order with our fruit and meat vendors.


Holiday Shopping!!

Shop at Amazon?

Do you shop on Amazon often? Did you know that you can help the Band Boosters when you shop on Amazon. Go to smile.amazon.com and then select Carrollton Band Booster Club, Inc. for the charitable organization you want to support.


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?

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.
