A Few Updates For The Week

I hope you have all enjoyed the snow, family time, and now an extra day off!

A few updates for the week:

Due to the inclement weather and continued hazardous conditions, school is closed on Monday, December 11.  All after school rehearsals have also been cancelled.  The dress rehearsal for the concert has been rescheduled for Tuesday after school. Please bring $5.00 for dinner – we will feed you between the rehearsal and the concert.


District Honor Band

Please note, District Honor Band auditions have been rescheduled for Saturday, December 16th.

Students who have signed up for District Honor Band have auditions on Saturday, December 16th at East Paulding High School.  Our scheduled time is 1:00PM.  Students should arrive by 12:30PM to register and warm-up before auditioning.  Auditions will be listened to on a first come, first served basis.  So once you are finished warming up, please report to your assigned room and get in line for your audition.  Judges are at lunch from 12:00-1:00, so if you arrive at 12:30 and warm-up, you should be able to get in line around 12:50 and be one of the first to audition after lunch.


Holiday Concert

Tuesday Night is the Christmas concert on December 12th at 7:00 pm in the Mabry Arts Center. This is sure to be a festive and fun evening.  We are sharing the concert with our choir and drama departments.  Make plans to be there and tell your family and friends to join us as well!  Students should bring their concert attire to school with them.  We will have rehearsal right after school before the concert.  Students should bring $5 for dinner.  We will order food for everyone and have it delivered so that students have an opportunity to eat before the concert.  Students will not be released to go home before the concert, so please plan accordingly.  Attire for the concert is our formal concert attire and a santa hat.


Trojan Band Shoppe

If you ordered embroidered items from the Shoppe, you will be contacted individually when items are ready for delivery.  Any items that are ready by Tuesday evening will be available prior to the Christmas concert in the lobby of the MAC for pick up. If you have already been contacted, please stop by and pick up your order.

Tentative delivery for sweatshirts will occur Wednesday from 3-6pm at the band room.  All fulfilled embroidered items will also be available for pick up at that time, in case you have orders for both.  More delivery details to come later this week.

As the 2017 marching season comes to a close, we would like to take a moment to extend a huge THANK YOU to all who have supported our newest endeavor to raise money to support our band students this year!  It would not have been successful without the support of our awesome band family.

SANTA HATS NEEDED

Quick reminder that the Carrollton Christmas Parade is approaching on 11/30/2017.  Students will wear their marching uniforms and a standard classic red Santa Hat.  Please start looking for one now to purchase.  Customized or trendy hats are not allowed, please find a standard one. Thank you!


Audition Results

We hosted our auditions last Tuesday and I am very pleased with our students progress!  Our students continue to raise the bar with what is possible.  Twenty-three students accumulated more than 150.  The Etude and Sight-reading were worth 50 each, so that means that these students accumulated more than 50 points in scales alone!  This is quite an accomplishment.  It is when the students are pushing themselves individually, that our band makes the biggest progress.  So proud of the effort by all of our students.  The link to the results is posted below:
