Legacy of Champions Right Around the Corner!

LOC_2clr-b

Our Legacy of Champions Marching band Competition is right around the corner… next weekend, October 14th, 2017, and we are making final preparations to host our visiting bands and their supporters. Part of these last minute preparations is to make sure we are fully staffed with volunteers and ready to represent the Trojan Nation as we provide a gold standard experience to each and everyone of our guests who join us next Saturday.

Volunteer Opportunities

If you have not signed-up yet or are not sure for the Legacy of Champions is… The Legacy of Champions (LoC) is a marching band competition that the Carrollton Trojan Band Boosters host here on the Carrollton City Schools campus. It is becoming one of our top fundraisers, with proceeds going to reduce the cost of future band trips for all students. This allows us to consider more extravagant trips and for more students to go. All band students are required to work the entire day and all band parents/guardians are expected to work at least one volunteer shifts, but highly encouraged to commit to working the whole day.

The success of our event takes the support and efforts of ALL of our parents/boosters. So please take a moment and visit our volunteer page: https://chstrojanband.com/volunteer/ and review all of the various sign-ups available for the event. There is a large variety of volunteer positions still available. There is something for everyone! The most important part is to just be involved, so please take time to sign-up today!

So if you haven’t signed up yet to help with this event, please do so now. We need everyone to participate! Alumni are especially welcome to volunteer too!

Food Needs

Finally, we still have some dessert needs! Our competition hosts one of the best hospitality rooms in the state! We do this by spoiling our guests rotten with comfortable surroundings, Southern hospitality, and great food! So to ensure we continue this great tradition, we need your help with the “great food” part. Please visit this sign-up: https://www.charmsoffice.com/charms/volunteerR.asp?v=3866155&cb=4477269 and volunteer to prepare a great dessert.

This is a great way to help out if your find yourself not available to actually be on campus volunteering that day or to go that extra mile in supporting our band program.

Thank you again for your continued support. Remember, if you haven’t signed up yet to help with this event, please do so now! And if you volunteered to bring fryers, tables, tents, etc., at the meeting the other night… please don’t forget to bring those next Thursday or Friday evening to the band room. Also don’t forget to write your name on the items or tag them in some way so we can get it back to you ASAP!

As always, if you have any questions, please make sure to contact the Band Boosters at: chstrojanbands@gmail.com.

Kicking Off, Picking Up & Helping The Band Grow and Prosper

As we settle into the week, the Band Boosters wanted to announce a few important dates and ways that we can all work together to support our band program.

All-In-One sale kick off!  

Thursday, September 21!!!

It is time to begin our All in One sale!!  This is a long standing, and always highly anticipated fundraiser for the Carrollton High School Band!  It is a fruit and meat sale,  students will sell and collect money at the point of sale. Money and order sheets will be turned into the boosters and the purchaser will be responsible to pick up their order on November 17th or 18th at Tabernacle Baptist Church. This is an important fundraiser and we hope to see ALL of our students participating by selling!!! Please come to the band room THIS Thursday (9/21/17) between 7pm and 9pm to pick up your student’s packet.

Yankee Candle Fundraiser

The candles will be delivered this Thursday, September 21st!  This is sooner than we had anticipated!  If your student sold candles, please pick them up this Thursday evening while you pick up your All-In-One packet. Candles will be available for pick up from 7 pm – 9 pm. The recognition for our top sellers will be Monday, October 9th at the end of regularly scheduled practice.

AmazonSmile

Do you ever order from Amazon? If you do, you can order the same items on AmazonSmile for the same amount and a percentage of the purchase will be donated to the Carrollton Trojan Band Boosters.

AmazonSmileThe AmazonSmile program is a give-back program where the online retailer, Amazon, donates 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the Carrollton Trojan Band Boosters to support our normal operations and efforts in supporting our band. This really is a effortless way to support our band without it costing you anything extra. If you normally shop online with Amazon, you simply designate the Carrollton High School Band Boosters Club Inc. as the charitable organization that you’d like to support and that’s it… Your account will automatically be linked and then whenever you make your normal eligible purchases the band will benefit. It can’t get much easier than that to help!

To link your account, follow this link: http://smile.amazon.com/ch/58-1572206  and sign in to your Amazon account. That’s all there is to it! Share this link with your family, friends, and co-workers too so they can support us as well.

After linking your account, whenever your shopping on Amazon, make sure your shopping at smile.amazon.com and then look for the AmazonSmile logo in the upper left-hand corner of your browser window. That’s your assurance that your purchases will benefit our program! NOTE: AmazonSmile does not work with the Amazon App for mobile devices. If you commonly shop from your smartphone or mobile device you will want to place the items you want in your shopping cart via the app but then complete your checkout in a traditional web browser on your desktop, laptop, smartphone, or mobile device in order for the AmazonSmile donation to be made.

Legacy Of Champions

All band students are required to work the entire day and parents/band boosters are expected to work at least one volunteer shift during the event, but highly encouraged to commit to working the whole day.

  • Can You Help?
    • The Junior High and Middle School are in great need of used band performance polos, black dress pants, shoes, and instruments that are not used anymore. Ms. Menendez and Ms. Thacker want to continue improving that continuity between our programs by ensuring that ALL Trojan Band members from 5th-12th grade are able to fully participate, regardless of any financial constraints. Please donate any gently used items or instruments by either directly bringing them to Ms. Menendez at the Junior High or by delivering them to Ms. Barbara Dothard at the front desk in the band room. Below are some of our future high school Trojan Band members who assisted in pulling the flag on Friday. We cannot wait to see what their future holds!
