Good afternoon,

There are two flavors of cookie dough that are delayed and will be here this upcoming Monday.

Nut lovers

As mentioned at the concert, I do not have any control over these delays and I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience that it causes to you or your customers. We have noted who is missing which flavor and will hand those out accordingly Monday 11/18/19.

      9:20am – 9:50 am   CES #2
      10:10am – 11:00am  CHS #1 (Juniors & Seniors) (CJHS Band students watch ceremony)

Cookie Dough: 

Our cookie dough is set to arrive tomorrow around noon.

I am looking for about 5 volunteers to help the fundraising staff members organize and set out the cookie dough. I would usually help but the rescheduled date conflicts with the Veteran’s Day Assembly. Please notify me as soon as possible if you are able to help out from noon to around 1 this Monday.

You may email me at maria.menendez@carrolltoncityschools.net

Good evening,

Please read below for some important announcements:

Cookie Dough Delivery:

After speaking with our fundraising company earlier today I received word that there was a delay in the production. Our cookie dough will be delivered on Monday November 11th instead of tomorrow. I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause. Please spread the word and inform your customers.


Fall Concert Tuesday, November 5th at 7 PM

Our first concert of the year is this Tuesday at the Mabry Arts Center! Student report time is 6:30 and their uniform includes their black band polo, black dress shoes, and black dress pants. If you ordered a new polo they will be handed out tomorrow. This is a formal event and is a grade for all students. Their grade will be earned for arriving on time, performing in uniform for the concert, and staying for the duration of the concert (estimated to end around 7:45 PM). This will be a fantastic opening to our year and I cannot wait!


Jacket Order:

Tonight is the last night to order your band jacket! Please do so as soon as possible so that Ozier Apparel can begin working on them.
