Jacket Order/Chair Test/ Carowinds Payment

Good evening,

Please take a moment to read through the following reminder.

Jacket Order:

Only five days left!


Special Notes:

  • Note that the Eddie Bauer Jacket is recommended for 8th graders who intend on participating in the marching band at the high school level next year. Owning that jacket is part of our uniform. Personally speaking, that is my favorite jacket and is the most durable jacket that many adults have even purchased, including our principals!
  • Consider paying the extra $5 to add the student name and instrument. Totally worth it so that the jackets do not get confused or accidentally stolen by someone with the same jacket.
  • There is a countdown on the website to make purchases and all sales will occur through there. The jackets will be delivered to the band room once they are ready. I will notify you of that date once I receive it.

Although this is not a fundraiser for our band program, it is a great way to support our band program to the public. I hope that you will consider purchasing a jacket for you and your student!


The next installment of $50 is due on the 28th of January. All accounts should be paid up to $150 in total by that date. Please begin sending in money for all students and chaperones at your earliest convenience.

Chair Test:

We will have our next chair test this Thursday, January 20th during class. 7th grade will play one as many major and minor scales as they can in 1 minute as well as their etude that was handed out in class. 8th grade will play as many major and minor scales as they can in 2 minutes as well as their etude that was handed out in class.

A copy of the etude as well as a recording can be found in the following Google Drive folder:


We are honored to have our campus host the first season of the brand new West Georgia Winds! This is an audition based ensemble for any 6th-8th grader in the state that rehearses once a week at the CHS band room and performs concerts at the Mabry Arts Center. Students will play challenging and fun music with band members from across our area and will get to play under the baton of Dr. Josh Byrd, director of bands at the University of West Georgia! This is a tremendous opportunity for our band students and I encourage those that are interested to apply at http://www.westgawinds.com

Please let me know if you have any questions!


Ms. Menendez
