GMEA All-State

We are so proud of the students who attended the final round of All-State auditions this past weekend at Union Grove HS. Making it to that round takes tremendous dedication to practicing and talent. This year 2 Carrollton students have earned a spot in the 2022 GMEA All-State Band.

Final Disney Payment • Due 1.14.22

Reminder that the final payment for all students and parents traveling on the Disney Trip is due no later than this Friday.

Rooming Lists

Parents if you know of another parent who is traveling with whom you’d like to room with please contact that parent and one of you please send Mr. Carr and email: He will be working on rooming lists this week and needs to finalize them soon. Students will be signing up in classes this week as well.

MLK Parade • Monday, January 17, 2022

Our Carrollton MLK Parade is on Monday, January 17, 2022 at 11:00AM through downtown Carrollton. Since the weather may be cold we will wear black beanies with our uniform instead of our shakos. Here is our bands itinerary for the morning:

  • 9:00AM Report to load instruments and get into uniforms (with black beanies)
  • 9:30AM Depart
  • 10:00AM Parade Line Up
  • 11:00AM Parade Steps Off
  • Approx. 12:00PM Complete parade

We do not have school, so once we get back and unload students will be dismissed to return home.

Senior Spotlight – Need your help

We would like to continue our Senior Spotlights tradition that was started last year. Seniors or senior parents, click here to fill out this form to allow us to customize your senior spotlight. Filling out the form allows us to celebrate our senior’s future plans and share photos of them from throughout their school careers.

After School Rehearsals Begin This Week

In preparation for Large Group Performance Evaluations and to allow us to bring in guest clinicians for our ensembles, who help our students and teachers grow, we have regular after school rehearsals for our concert band classes this semester. These rehearsals are already on the calendar and are required of our band students.

  • Symphonic Band will meet on Mondays 3:45pm – 6:00pm
  • Wind Ensemble on Tuesdays 3:45pm – 6:00pm
  • Concert Band on Wednesdays 3:45pm – 6:00pm

We had a few families who did not get the communication this past week about the inclement weather canceling the Peach Bowl Parade. It is very important that you sign-up for our Remind101 notifications because we use Remind for all “just in time” communication to our marching band parents and students. This is a FREE service that allows you to receive a text message when we send a message out.

How to Join Remind

We would also appreciate you following the band on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.


Just a reminder that Graduation this year is on May 20, 2022 although our last day of school is not until May 25. This is an important evening for all of our band students because not only do we get to celebrate with our graduating seniors, but we perform as part of the ceremony. This is a required performance for all wind and percussion students. An itinerary will be posted as we get closer to graduation, but I wanted to make sure that you understood that this is an evening commitment for our band students.
