CHS Winterguard

Reis Grimes, Jada Vinson, Elizabeth Moomey, and Aileen Yanney all spent part of their winter rehearsing with the Carrollton Junior High Cadet Guard. Additionally, Tori Branson served as the team manager for both Carrollton Winterguards.

The JH Cadet Guard earned many strong placements during the season in their class and even performed in Chattanooga, Tennessee at the SAPA Championships. These are outstanding students who are leaders in their school, their band classes, and on the floor with the JH winter guard. I am so proud of them and all of their hard work! Congratulations on a great season!

High School and Spring Concert Chair Test Auditions

All 8th graders will walk over to the CHS band room with Ms. Menendez this Thursday to audition. Instead of hosting two auditions, we are hosting one audition and will use the results to place the CJHS 8th graders for Spring Concert as well as class placement for those band members continuing on the high school band. The students have all of the audition information in Google Classroom. Please let me know if you have any questions.

I look forward to seeing the students tomorrow!


M. Menendez
