The results for the high school band chair test have been posted on the high school website. Please click the link below to check them out. Congratulations to you all!
8th graders received a copy of the marching band packet on Friday in case they missed the meeting earlier this month. I have plenty of copies in the band room if you have lost yours. PDF’s are also on the high school website on the most recent post. Forms may be turned in to me. I will happily drop them off at the high school for you.
Marching Percussion Clinics (April 15 – 19) 4:00PM – 6:00PM
Clinics for all percussionists to learn marching percussion techniques and determine instrument assignments for the fall.

Membership in the fall color guard is required for students to participate winter guard activities, except current 7th graders who may participate as 8th graders.
Jazz band rehearsals: Monday and Wednesday at 7:45 AM
The Jazz Band has been invited to perform at the CJHS Honor’s Night in the Mabry Arts Center! We will report and set up at 5:45 and will perform music as people are walking in until around 6:30. 7th grade band students have an after school band rehearsal for their Spring Concert on that Monday. If your 7th grader is in jazz band then they may walk over to the MAC with me that evening.
Our band is in charge of concessions at the school dance. As we usually have done in the past, I am asking band members to donate certain items for the dance. The band will purchase candy, gatorade, and pizza while the band members will donate sodas and chips. Below are the requirements:
Woodwinds: Sodas (1-2) 12 pack of either Coke, Sprite or Dr. Pepper. 12 oz cans please.
Brass/Percussion: Chips: One variety pack of chips of your choice. These chips are the size of chips that you would get as a side at a sandwich shop.
We are aiming to sell these items conveniently at the dance and quickly which is why this size is a perfect size for us.
If you would like to volunteer to work the concession stand or to help with set up/tear down please fill out the form below.
School dance is April 26th from 6-9. Set up volunteers are asked to show up at 4:30 and tear down volunteers may be asked to stay until 10:00PM. Concessions will show up around 5:00.
We had a fantastic time at the Braves Game on Saturday. I cannot thank you enough for all of your support and help, especially chaperones. Keeping that many kids safe and monitored in an environment like that can be tricky. I hope that the kids had a wonderful time! Check out this photo of some of our band students and parents on the big screen!
Have a fantastic night!
