Upcoming Events — CHS Trojan Band

Important High School Band Information

Good evening,

This week at a glance:

Monday: Marching Band Payment and Forms Due  (see below) 

Due to the Carrollton City staff reporting to campus this week, no office hours or lectures will be held this week. 

8th Grade Parents:

It is imperative that you subscribe to the high school band website at this time. We want to be able to communicate with you should any changes happen due to COVID-19.

Please read the post found on the high school website for information on the marching band payments, schedule, and important forms. This includes those that are interested in auditioning for colorguard. Subscribe, “like”, and register for Remind101 to stay up to date.

I am always happy to help with any questions that you have but would like to encourage you to direct your questions to the high school directors as we move forward.

Mr. Carr:

Mr. Nelson:

7th Grade Chair Tests:

Due to the wide array of circumstances during this time, I have decided not to publish the chair test results. While I do enjoy seeing students pushing themselves and each other, I feel that it would not serve any purpose to publish the results with so many students who were unable to complete the assignment.  Students received a grade for completion of their assignment and I want to thank them for their hard work at home during the last 9 weeks. We will have a chair test in August upon our return to school. Thank you for your understanding.

Return of School Instruments:

If your child plays a school-owned instrument they may return it this week between the hours of 8am-4pm. This will allow for me to clean and send them off for repairs for the summer.

School-owned instruments include:



french horn

bass trombone

bass clarinet

tenor saxophone

baritone saxophone

I hope that you all are safe and enjoying the nice weather that we have been having. Please let me know if I can help in any way.


Ms. Menendez

It is important to stay in communication because although we are planning commencing some activities in June, if the situation does not improve then we will make decisions to alter the schedule. Our students’ health and safety will always remain our top priority. Some may think that the excitement to start activities may be to remain competitive, but honestly, it is to fulfill the social needs of our students. Our students thrive when working together and we want to be able to provide that for them as soon as it is safe to reconvene.

More details can be found on our calendar, and following camps subject to change, but we are planning them optimistically:

  • Mondays in June – Percussion Camps
  • Tuesdays and Wednesdays in June – Color Guard Camps
  • Thursdays in June – Winds Rookie Camps (open to all members)

These camps will take place only if it is safe to do so. We have planned them in an effort to be proactive and optimistic. We will continue to follow our district recommendations as well as the CDC guidelines to ensure the health and safety of our children. If it is still advised that we do not hold camps, information will be shared on this website and the channels listed above.

Colorguard Auditions – Please spread the word!

We are in the process of recruiting members for our colorguard. We will be hosting formal auditions at a later date, but at this time we would like all students who are interested to participate through a special Google Classroom. Interested students can join using this code: hkr2jp3
