Hello all you amazing band students and parents!  Over the past week, we have challenged our band leadership to submit a video promoting the upcoming Band BBQ on May 7.  To say that we had an awesome turnout is an understatement!  The students are simply stunning in their creativity and ability.  Of course, you parents already knew this.

We wanted to get the students involved because this is their fundraiser for their band and we believed it was important for them to also use that creativity to promote the BBQ on social media.  But we need your help!  Below are the top 3 videos and we need you to vote on which one will reign supreme and have their video blasted all over Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Tiktok, Twitter…

Watch the Videos below and use the poll to vote. We are going to have voting go on from now until February 29.  Share this post with all of your family and friends and thank for your support!!!!!

District Honor Band and Winter Guard Results

It was a wonderful District Honor Band weekend! Our kids represented themselves and our community very well! Spectacular concerts and professionalism in every aspect from bus/hotel/restaurant/and rehearsal etiquette, etc! Our Trojans are first class! We are still waiting for the results. Once we get the results we will post to the website.

Also, congratulations to our Winter Guard who improved their score by 8 points and finished in 2nd place tonight at the SAPA show hosted by Creekview HS!

Trip Meeting – February 27

If your student would like to go on the upcoming band trip to Philadelphia and Washington DC during the Spring of 2021, we will have an information meeting on February 27 in the Band Room at 7PM.

SAVE THE DATE – Band Banquet – April 27

It is hard to believe that the end of the school year is quickly approaching and that means that our annual band banquet is quickly approaching. This year’s banquet will be Monday, April 27, 2020, at 6 PM in the CHS Cafeteria. Like last year, we will have Longhorn Steakhouse catering it. The cost for the meal this year will be $14 per person. We will be accepting cash on designated days in the band room (dates to be announced) and we will also be using RevTrack to accept payments for your meals. Once we have finalized all of these details we will send out an updated email and the website will also be updated with this information.

SAVE THE DATE – Band BBQ – May 7

The annual Band BBQ is quickly approaching. The Band BBQ is one of two major fundraisers that help the Boosters to continue to do all of great things to support our students and our band program. We will have a kick off meeting to provide all of the necessary information, so please keep an eye on the website and we will provide you with a date of that meeting.
