Carrollton MLK Day Parade

The Week Ahead – Jan. 15-21, 2018

Happy Sunday!  I hope you are having a fantastic weekend and staying warm!

Thank you to all that attended the Hollywood Trip meeting this past week!  We had a fabulous turn out and we learned about our upcoming trip to California. Just to recap, the trip will be November 23-27, 2018. The cost of the trip is not completely final because airfare prices have not been released by airlines. We feel a realistic estimate is $1750 and a final number will be made available as soon as possible.

We do have one change to the information provided, ALL trip deposits will be collected by the Band Boosters. We are working to collect your credit card payments through revtrak, cash and checks can be turned in at the band room. Please remember to put your payment in an envelope with the names of those the deposit is for and the amount enclosed!  Deposits are due January 26th!


The Carrollton Martin Luther King, Jr. Parade is on Monday, January 15, 2018.  The Trojan Band will represent our community by marching in the parade.  Here is our itinerary for the parade.

Mr. Bright has started a Basketball Pep Band for interested students.  Volunteers will perform at a couple of basketball games this year to cheer on our Trojans on Criswell Court.  Students will get in free to the game and have a chance to visit concessions between games for dinner.  Our first game is January 16, 2018.  Students should wear blue jeans and their show shirt to the games.  Report time is 5:00PM to the band room and we should be done by 9:00PM.

2018 Begins With Success!

Happy New Year everyone and thank you to all of the students who participated in the Chick-fil-a Peach Bowl with us on January 1, 2018.  The temperatures were excessively cold, but our students persevered and gave an outstanding performance during the parade and the pre-game.


All-State auditions took place this past Saturday at Houston County High School in Warner Robins, Georgia.  Students had to make it past the first round of auditions, which were in December, to be invited to participate in this final round.  Please help us congratulate the following students for representing our Trojan Band at this audition:

  • Taylor Berry, trombone
  • Ben Bradley, trumpet
  • Lainey Driver, trumpet
  • Oscar Hernandez, euphonium
  • Katie Hoberg, tenor saxophone
  • Rachel Ivester, flute
  • Kayla McGuinn, percussion
  • Kelley Ozier, euphonium
  • Kendall Ozier, flute
  • Ryan Schumann, trumpet
  • Andrew Stagliano, baritone saxophone
  • Thomas Svegl, trombone
  • Jesse Todd, flute
  • Christian Williamson, trombone

The students competed against the other 2000 students who were attendance.  Carrollton High School had three names listed on the list for All-State this year!  Please help us to congratulate Kendall Ozier and Taylor Berry for making the band and Kelley Ozier for being listed as a first alternate!  Making All-State is a very difficult task and we are very proud to be represented by these students!  Congratulations!!
