A Few Reminders For This Week for In-coming 9th Grade Band Members

Good evening!  I hope that you are all enjoying your weekend and looking forward to celebrating the 4th of July! This message is for our rising 9th graders from our CHS Band Website: chstrojanband.com (If you haven’t already done so, please make sure to follow our high school website and social media channels.)

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.


If you have any questions, please make sure to contact Mr. Carr at: christopher.carr@carrolltoncityschools.net, the Band Office at 770-834-0550, or the Band Boosters at: chstrojanbands@gmail.com.
