This year the band is bringing back the well loved tradition of handing out Kool Pops to students and staff after rehearsals starting on Tuesday, July 17, 2018. We are still collecting Kool Pops; they can be dropped off before or after rehearsal.
We also need volunteers to help hand out the Kool Pops after rehearsals. If you would like to help, click here to sign up.
Meet outside by the band room doors at the high school to hand out Kool Pops and bring a plastic garbage bag and scissors. If you have any questions contact Maria at email@example.com.
Chrysler Nationals is this weekend and lots of help is still needed. Come out, have fun, and support our band students!
Visit the Car Show Concession page for signups and more information.
Mr. Greg Swartzlander, former CHS marching band staff member, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, July 5 at age 49. Greg was part of the marching band’s visual design team from 1991 – 1997 and in 2008 – 2011. He was a great supporter of the CHS Marching Band and his contributions to the marching program were greatly appreciated. Greg will be missed by many in the band and drum corps world.
The next band booster meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 10, 2018 at 6 pm in the Spanish room. This meeting is open to everyone; hope to see you there!
