Update 8/27 (Video Included)

Good evening,

You may watch the video below or read the text.

8th Grade Carowinds trip has been scheduled: May 4th-6th Carowinds. Price is around $220. Ways to offset costs include cookie dough fundraiser, AYP fundraiser, and the chili cook-off in November.

District Honor Band: All students may audition. Paper work to go home soon with info on what all that entails (video above already has an explanation). Have your student let me know if they are interested in auditioning for District Honor Band. This helps our students and our band program in so many ways! Please consider pushing your student because the entire process will be a great learning opportunity for them. Etudes are here: District Honor Band Music

Calendar Updated: The calendar on our website is finally updated! This has all Trojan Band Games, trips that I have approved, rehearsals and concerts. As I add events to the calendar I will notify you through a post so that you do not miss it.

Cookie Dough Fundraiser: Beings Monday August the 27th (tomorrow) $3 earned towards band program for 7th graders and $3 earned towards 8th grade fees for their Carowinds trip. Cookie dough fundraiser ends two weeks from then on September 11th.

Legacy of Champions Marching Band Competition: Any students or parents that are willing to volunteer at this event may contact me! We can use a lot of help and this is a great way for you to get to know the high school band parents and for your kids to know other students and bands as well. If your student has service hours that they are trying to complete then they can earn those on this day.

Chili Cook-Off: If you have any ideas for our Chili Cook-Off fundraiser in November please let me know. I am in the planning process for that now and could use your creative ideas.

Let me know if you have any questions and SELL COOKIE DOUGH!
