Coat Orders

Today we rolled out our coat sale in class.  Each student received a coat order form with three different styles.  Each coat comes with our exclusive Trojan band logo embroidered on the left side.  For $5 extra you can have your child’s name, and instrument added.  We will sell these coats until November 11th, and then turn in the orders to Ozier Apparel.  

Important items to remember:

  • PLEASE MAKE SURE TO WRITE YOUR CHECKS TO OZIER APPAREL, NOT CJHS BAND.
  • PLEASE MAKE SURE TO SPELL YOUR NAME CORRECTLY AND YOUR INSTRUMENT CORRECTLY WHEN ADDING $5 FOR EXTRA EMBROIDERY.
  • COATS ARE NOT REQUIRED THEY ARE JUST A FUN ADDED EXTRA.

We have several sizes in the band room if you would like to try them on your child before writing your size.  These also make great gifts for your child if you would like to order them secretly and turn them in directly to me without them knowing, just turn the order form and money in to the front office and they will put it in my mailbox.  I will link the order form in the “Forms” section of the website if you would like to print one.

Thanks all.

Great Job !!!

I have to say I am very impressed with both the 7th and 8th grade bands this week. With only one after school to put our concert music together they both worked extremely hard. 

We also saw almost perfect attendance for both bands after school. Thank you for your commitment to our band program. 

Thursday, November 3rd is our Fall Concert. It will start at 7pm and last around 45 minutes. Please plan on staying the entire time for both bands. 7th graders will need to arrive and be seated on stage at 6:30pm for warmup. 8th graders may arrive at 6:45pm and report to the seating area in the audience with their instrument out and ready to go. 

I have emailed the concert parent committee but I could use a lot more help setting up after school. If you can meet us next Thursday at 3:15 to help load at CJHS and then setup at 4pm at the MAC please email me. We will need around 15 people to make it go really quick. Please consider helping. 

Thanks all. I look forward to seeing you all next Thursday.

This weeks reminders

This week each grade level will be having an after school rehearsal to put together our concert music for our fall concert next week. It is imperative that each band member be at rehearsal. Here are all the details:

Tuesday Oct. 25th:  7th grade band after school rehearsal. 3:30 – 4:30

Thursday Oct. 27th: 8th grade band after school rehearsal. 3:30 – 4:30

Thursday Nov 3rd: Fall Concert at the Mabry Arts Center. 7 – 8pm 

Our concerts this year will only include the 7th and 8th grade bands. This should help with parking and seating to make it the most comfortable experience for everyone. 

I cannot wait to show off these talented students and how much progress they have made. 

Thank You 

8th grade was a great success, I hope every student had an awesome time playing and performing Friday night. Thank you to my awesome 8th graders and your amazing, supportive parents.  To look up at that wall of band students in the stands was special, the future of the CHS Trojan band is bright. 

Parent Volunteers for Tonight

As you know we have our 8th grade band night at the high school, where our awesome 8th grade band has an opportunity to experience a Friday night with the award winning CHS Trojan Band.

If you would like to come and help tonight to watch your child and help out with supervision and any other chaperone duties please email me, and then meet us at the practice field at around 6:30pm and we will all walk to the stadium together for the game.  Try and wear a black hoodie, coat or t-shirt so we all kind of match.

Duties mainly include:

  • Sit near the band and watch students in the stands
  • Assist any students with equipment that may be heavy
  • Help anyone who has an emergency
  • Walk around concession area during 3rd quarter
  • Help monitor everyone is picked up at the end of the night

Thanks all, its going to be a chilly one tonight so make sure you supply your child with a coat or hoodie.
