LoC A HUGE SUCCESS! Thanks to you!

Here are some comments from our LoC Coordinator, Ms. Menendez: Wow! Saturday was a tremendous day! I cannot say enough about how prepared we were on our end and how smoothly things went. The compliments have been flowing in on how professional and welcoming our volunteers were and it brings me joy to know that WE provided such an experience for our guests. We truly gave them “Legacy” experience.Special thank you to our volunteers who were involved in key roles on Saturday. They went above and beyond as well. We were all patient, flexible, and knowledgeable about everything on Saturday and I think we should feel great about what we did. Our months of preparation paid off. Our band staff could not be more thankful for the hard work and hours upon hours that you gave up to make this experience memorable for all. Know that your efforts were seen and appreciated all year and especially on Saturday. 

Some thoughts from Mr. Carr: I am so proud of the tremendous efforts provided by our entire band family. Parents, students, and staff all pulled together to provide the Carrollton Experience for our guests. We all did our best to go the extra mile for all involved and made it a memorable experience for our students. It was a long day, but because of our hard work together it was very rewarding. I remember smiling proudly at the end of the day because of how proud I was of the service provided by each of you! Registration, parking, hospitality, band guides, concessions, vendors, adjudication, tabulation, and overall logistics were great hosts with the experience of our visitors as our top priority all day! You all are ROCKSTARS! Thank you for providing your day to provide service to our band program and band community. Then, after all of their hard work, our kids put on an AWESOME performance. To hear that stadium cheering loudly on their feet for our kids felt great! Congratulations on an amazing day!

All in 1 Sale • Last Week • Turn in on Monday

The turn in date for all in one sales is Monday, October 18th from 3:30 – 5:30. Please remember to complete your summary sheet and make sure your money matches your total! This will make the turn in process much easier.

Our booster club traditionally only holds two selling fundraisers a year, the All-In-One Sale in the fall and the Band BBQ in the spring. As a result of the hard work of our parents we are able to provide things for our outstanding band students that would otherwise not be possible. Additionally, these sales help us keep our band fees low. The more fruit and meat that we sell this fall, the more we are able to provide for our band. To accomplish these goals, we need each band family to either sell 30 units of fruit and/or meat or make a $150 donation to the band.

The All In One packets will be given out during class tomorrow. We will again have Grapefruit, Hamlin Oranges, Navel Oranges, Mandarins, Mixed Fruit, Spiral Honey Glazed Ham, Whole Cajun Turkey, Smoked Turkey Breast, Pork Sausage Patties and Peppered Bacon for sale. Our community is very supportive of the All-In-One sale – they are just waiting for us to ask them to buy!

Thank you for your participation in this sale and your support of all our children in the band program! Thank you for being ALL IN for the All-in-one Sale.

Concessions protocol for the new uniforms:

We are very fortunate to have new uniforms and will be debuting them this Friday for homecoming and wearing them again on Saturday for our marching competition. Students should use good judgement when eating food in our new uniforms and should refrain from the following: powdered sugar, globs of ketchup/mustard, or other dips (polynesian sauce, nacho cheese, etc.) while in uniform. Additionally, students are only permitted to drink clear liquids (water, Sprite, etc.) while in our new uniforms. Any uniform that has to be cleaned because of a student’s failure to follow these guidelines will be cleaned at the expense of the student’s parents.

Access Road Behind the Band Room

The access road behind the band room that connects our room to the driveway of our storage building is not for thru traffic. On Friday night we had some parents pull through this access road while we were still unloading equipment. This poses a safety issue for our parents/students who were entering and exiting the garage while unloading equipment.

Additionally, we had many parents forget not to park in the bus loop after an away game. There were multiple cars parked at the entrance to the band facility which blocked the buses and equipment trucks from entering. Thank you for your help in keeping this roadway clear for our students and volunteers to return without obstruction and expediting our unloading process so that we all can go home sooner and safely.

Health Class • Due Monday

More info about the health class can be found by using the link above or following this link: https://chstrojanband.com/health-in-band/

Parents: the due date for the health class assignments was by the first week of school, but I am happy to allow the students to have extra time without penalty. If your child has not completed the eADAP course, they are officially behind and next to get busy. In addition to the eADAP course, they have 9 Units to complete in order to earn health/PE credit through participation in Marching Band. Please make sure this is 100% completed by the end of Fall Break (October 18). This is the last week! Thanks for getting it done.
