Saturday: 9/24 Trojan band game

Chocolate Bar fundraiser:

We are excited to begin our World’s Finest Chocolate Fundraiser this week. Each chocolate bar will be sold for $1. Each box has 60 candy bars containing the following flavors: Milk Chocolate with Almonds, Dark Chocolate Bars, W.F. Crisp Bars, Wafer, Milk Chocolate Bars, and Caramel Bars. 

Students will bring home one box of chocolate bars at a time. Each student will need to submit $60 before receiving another box to sell. Cash is accepted as well as checks written out to CJHS BAND. No online purchases may be made for this fundraiser. 

CAUTION: Warm temperatures will melt the chocolate. Do NOT leave chocolate bars in vehicles or warm spaces. We will NOT accept any damaged or melted chocolate. 

The fundraiser ends on Friday, October 7th. Please turn in the $60 at that time for your current box. No unopened boxes will be accepted and students must pay the difference for the chocolate bars that were not sold. As an example: If a student sells 55 chocolate bars, then the student will pay the remaining $5 out of pocket upon submitting their money. 

8th graders will earn $30 off of their Carowinds trip per each box sold! Carowinds information will be sent home this week.


Most Boxes sold – $100 Gift Card

2nd Place – $50 Gift Card

3rd Place – $25 Gift Card

*For every box that is sold, students will gain 1 entry into our $50 gift card raffle. Four names will be drawn for the $50 gift card prizes.

I am excited about our Carowinds trip and to raise funds for our band program to purchase equipment, music, and instruments. Thank you for your participation! 

West Georgia Winds:

Congratulations to our band members who earned a spot in the West Georgia Wind Honor Band for the 2022-2023 season! We are proud of you for your hard work and proud to have you representing us!

UWG Concert Field Trip:

We had a GREAT time on Tuesday during our annual UWG field trip! We had fun playing video games, board games, and sports followed by a catered meal from MOES. Thank you to all of the chaperones that donated their time, food, and supplies to make this night a special one. The concert experience was unforgettable and I hope that you can see the joy on the faces of the students in the pictures below.

Trojan Band:

Saturday was a blast cheering on our Trojans at Grisham Stadium. Thank you to all of our volunteers and students for knocking it out of the park. I am excited to cheer on the Trojans again this Saturday, the 24th again! Report time is 1 PM at the CHS band room. The game occurs from 2-4 and we hope that you will come out and cheer alongside our band students!

I am looking forward to another great week with the CJHS Band!
