Summer Camps

Dear all,

As summer approaches, we would like to encourage your students to look at some options for summer band opportunities. Below are a few camps that are recommended by us and the surrounding community.

Music Camps listed on the Georgia Music Educators Association website:

Summer camps are opportunities for students to continue growing on their applied instrument as well as learn from professionals in our field, meet new friends, and perform music that they may not be able to perform anywhere else. It is a great way to keep your student encouraged and busy in such an enriching activity! If you look through these websites and have any additional questions, feel free to contact us. We would love to continue the strong tradition of high participation in summer music camps in the Carrollton band programs.

We highly encourage that you consider enrolling your student in a summer camp this summer!

Monday After-School Practice Sessions

Good morning,

We have decided to pause our sixth grade after-school practice sessions until after our Large Group Performance Evaluation has occurred. This will allow for the directors to assist at the Junior High and the High School in preparation for these important performances. We are scheduled to resume Monday, March 23rd.

Sincerely,

Ms. Menendez & Mr. Huls

Welcome Back !!!

Hello CJHS and CMS band parents, welcome back to school.  I hope that you had a restful and relaxing summer and are just as fired up as we are to return to school for another exciting school year.

For brand new band parents in the 6th grade band I welcome you to our band family, thank you for enrolling your child to be a part of one of the biggest and most celebrated programs here in the Carrollton City School System.  For my returning veteran parents thank you again for coming back and dedicating your time, and effort to the wonderful band program we all create together.

You will notice a few changes this year as we welcome a new staff member to our team to assist me at the JH and MS, Ms. Maria Menendez.  You can see her biography on our staff page on the dashboard above.  We are very excited to welcome Maria, and know she will provide fantastic instruction and support to our students.

You will also notice a few new communication changes….WE HAVE A WEBSITE!!!!! I am so excited to host this site which will run side by side with the high school band website, and should provide a great way for ALL parents to stay in touch and connected with your directors.

Please feel free to browse the website, subscribe to the website and you will get updates as the calendar is updated, and new information is released.  The key to our success is great communication.

We look forward to seeing you all at the open houses, and throughout the year.
