Help Needed For Competition on Saturday

Our last contest is this Saturday at Haralson County High School. We will need a number of people to help move the backdrops, wagons and also help the front ensemble so please consider signing up to help. We ask that you please consider signing up to assist with the props as well as other areas that need assistance with carrying equipment to and from the field. Our students have put in a tremendous amount of effort into making this show the best it can be. You can be a part of helping them finish strong, by volunteering to push props and other equipment. As with the previous competition, we will need to determine the total number of passes we are getting from Haralson County and then we will need to purchase additional passes since most bands host competitions as fundraisers. We will let you know how much each volunteer and chaperone will need to pay either late Friday or early Saturday morning. Since the admission price for the competition is $8, you can expect to pay less than $8.

You can see all the areas that need help by clicking here. You can also sign up there as well.

Our students have worked so hard to get to this point and now you can be a part of helping them have a successful run.

All-In-One Final Push! PLEASE READ

If you have not sold your 30 items or made a minimum donation of $150 please turn in this by this TUESDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2019. It is imperative that we all participate in this fundraiser to allow the booster club to operate for our students (band camp meals, away game meals, etc). Because this fundraiser and our BBQ has traditionally been successful, it has allowed us to keep our band fees minimal. Thank you so much for your continued support because we need you!!


Holiday Shopping!!

Has your student been asking for some band swag for the holidays? Look at the Band Shoppe by clicking this link and get your items earlier and beat the holiday rush. There is even a number of cold-weather gear that you can order to be ready to support the Trojans as they get ready to enter the playoffs.


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.
