Greetings everyone! It's hard to believe that tomorrow is the last day of band camp! The students have been working hard to make this season great! Come and support CHS Music tomorrow, Friday, August 23rd, 5:30 pm at our annual season kickoff! Come early at 5:00 pm to get first dibs at the volunteer shifts for our concession stand at football games (a huge fundraiser for us). Next, I'll be reviewing highlights about program policies, event schedule, and grading. Some of the coaching staff will be introduced as well! After the brief meeting we'll enjoy performances by the front ensemble, drum line, color guard, horn line, and the first ever performance of Movement 1 from our 2019 production, Unless...
The order form for Show Shirts, Uniform Shoes, and other miscellaneous items will also be distributed. Students know if they need new uniform shoes. Furthermore, we will be using our current funds to order show shirts for students (instead of asking for more money)!
Lastly, the event will be held in the CHS Quad (outside center of campus); not in the band room.
Thanks for your support and we'll see you tomorrow!

Happy Band Camp Season! Progress is going well here at CHS! The students are striving for excellence throughout the day while building a sense of community within our team.
Thank you for taking the few moments to read these updates. Most questions I receive could be answered here.
No Fundraiser - Saturday 8/17
My apologies for the late notification... There will not be a Fundraiser Event this Saturday, August 17th. Students have the entire weekend off.
Donation #3 Due Now - $300
Thank you so much for your continued financial support. We would not be able to offer your students a world class experience without your contributions.
Friday 8/23 - 5:30-7:00 pm - Parent Meeting & Show n' Tell!
At this meeting we will discuss further details about the 2019 season. The booster board parents will create the volunteer rosters for concessions and show day logistics. And you will get your first look at the 2019 production Unless...
Additional Band & Color Guard Supplies
Band and color guard members have additional equipment needed. These items depend on their instrument, grade, and section. They are typically purchased by the student; similar to school supplies for other classes.
These items like the band shirt, uniform shoes, and color guard rifles will be ordered separately on an 'as-needed' basis. This Friday students will receive an order form that you may indicate which items are needed and write a check for that specific amount. Please consider these needs and return the form and payment next week.
Logistical Equipment Donations Needed!
Do you have an Easy-Up canopy sitting in the garage that never gets used? How about too much kitchen supplies like a cutting board or chafing dishes? The booster board is kindly asking for donations of these type of items; new or used! Spare extension cords, folding tables, or first aid kits that you have sitting around at home will help us in our daily logistics. See the attached list of supplies needed. Thank you so much for this consideration.
Member Jackets Coming Soon!
Something to get excited about... soon we will be taking orders for member jackets! These jackets will be thick, Dickie's style material that will keep students warm at competitions and football games. They will have a big bold Regiment of Gold logo on the back and your student's name embroidered on the front. Stay tuned...
Share-Tea Fundraiser - Monday 8/26
On the first day of school we will continue our successful Family Nights by gathering at Share Tea on South Street after rehearsal!
Thanks for reading!
