I have decided to have our Spring Concert Rehearsals during the school day rather than after school due to some after school conflicts. All teachers are aware and will not mark your student absent or penalize them for missing class.
Our 7th grade students will rehearse during 1st and 2nd block tomorrow morning. 2nd block students must check in with their homeroom teacher before coming to the band room.
8th grade will rehearse during 5th and 6th block on Tuesday.
I am excited to hear both groups as we prepare for our Spring Concert on Tuesday, May 25th.
We are excited to share the Mabry Arts Center with the high school band on Tuesday, May 25th. No tickets are required for admission but masks are strongly encouraged.
Students will wear their all black uniform as usual and should report to the MAC at 5:30.
8th grade will have a seat in the hall to watch 7th grade and 7th grade will start on stage. Once 7th grade finishes, they will take the place of 8th grade in the audience so that they can watch as well. All students are dismissed at the conclusion of the concert.
High School Band Meeting on Thursday
Please put this on your calendar! May 20th will be our 2021-2022 Information Meeting which will include rising Freshman through Senior parents and students. We will spend plenty of time walking through what it means to be in the CHS Trojan Band and Band Boosters next year, provide information to help parents and students get ready, and more! We will also have the CHS Band Store open for those who want some additional merch!
Upcoming Important Dates:
5/25: Spring Concert 6 PM at the Mabry Arts Center (earlier than normal since we are sharing with the high school band).
7/19-7/23: Band Camp 8:00 AM- 9:00 PM

We have a fun yet busy next couple of weeks leading in to summer break. These students are working HARD and I commend them for pushing through all the way until the end. Thank you so much for your support and I look forward to speaking to many of you at our Spring Concert!
