Good evening!  I hope that you are all enjoying your weekend and looking forward to celebrating the 4th of July!

Week at a Glance:

  • Monday – parade practice – 3 – 6 pm band room
  • Tuesday – parade
    • 8 am – load instruments at the band room
    • 9 am – meet at Bank of the Ozarks
    • 10 am – parade begins
    • Pick up students following the parade at the old Kmart
  • Thursday – Optional band camp t-shirt orders due – https://chstrojanband.revtrak.net/band-camp/#/v/band-camp-shirts

The Details:

Monday there will be a parade practice from 3 – 6 pm at the band room.  As Mr. Carr says, “On time is late and early is on time.”  Students will want to arrive at the band room with enough time to get their instrument out and be ready to begin practice promptly at 3pm. Please make sure your student has some water!  It will be hot and muggy!  Something like the 1/2 gallon cooler pictured is good.

Tuesday, July 4th, instruments will be loaded from the band room into the trailer at 8 AM.  Students needing to load their instruments will need to be at the band room tuesday at 8 AM.  If your student has their instrument with them, they will need to meet at the Bank of the Ozarks (formerly Community Southern Bank)  just off the square at 201 Maple Street at 9 AM.  The parade is set to step off at 10 AM.  Students will need to be picked up at the old Kmart after the parade.

Students will be given t-shirts to wear for the parade(handed out at the end of practice on Monday) and they should also wear their black band shorts.  New band students will also receive their shorts on Monday.

Band Camp dates:

  • July 17 – 21 from 8 am – 3 pm
  • July 24 – 28 from 8 am – 9 pm

This year the Band Booster Club thought it would be fun to sell a t-shirt that depicts common things said at band camp.  This is completely OPTIONAL.  In order to get the shirts in time for band camp, orders must be placed by midnight, July 6th.  Please go to https://chstrojanband.revtrak.net/band-camp/#/v/band-camp-shirts  for online orders or complete a paper order form, available in the band room.  Shirts start at $10.

Believe It or Not… It’s Time to Get Ready

BeleiveThe month of June is just flying by, which brings us closer to the beginning of marching band activities for this new season.  Our first official activities begins in just a few short days as we prepare for our performance in the Carrollton July 4th People’s Parade.

We will be holding parade practice Friday, July 1, from 3pm-6pm that all band members, including rising 9th graders, are required to attend. Practice begins promptly at 3pm – Remember that being “On-Time” means to be early.  If you arrive at 3:00pm, you’re late! Also, we will be practicing outside, so dress appropriately and begin drinking lots of water to ensure proper hydration for both practice and the parade.

The parade takes place Monday, July 4. Loaders will report to the band room at 8:15am. Everyone else will report to the Community and Southern Bank (201 Maple St • Carrollton, GA 30117) at 9:00AM, please arrive early. The parade steps off at 10:00AM and we should be finished by 11:00AM. Please have your ride pick you up from the old K-Mart parking lot, at the end of the parade route.  The equipment trailer will return to the band room immediately following the parade to off-load.
