This year the band will be bringing back the well loved tradition of handing out Kool Pops to students and staff after rehearsals during band camp! But first we need someone to step up and coordinate volunteers and organize the collection of Kool Pops. If you are interested in helping or have any questions, please contact the booster president or secretary.
Helping at a car show is an easy and fun way to help support the band and our band students!

During the 2013-2014 school year, the very first Distinguished Alumnus Award was presented to Mr. Lawrence Loh, class of 1988. Every year since then, a new band alumnus has been recognized. The purpose of this award is to recognize a former member of the Carlisle High School Band who graduated from Carlisle High School and has distinguished themselves by achieving outstanding accomplishments in their chosen field, has served their communities, state, or nation, and will serve as a role model for current and future Carlisle High School band members.
If you know of any band alumnus who embodies these traits, please nominate them for the next Distinguished Alumnus Award. Nomination information can be found on our website, where you can also read the bios of past award recipients. All nominations must be received by July 1, 2018.
The Chevrolet Nationals car show is this week, June 22-24, and help is still needed! Volunteers are also needed Wednesday, 6 PM at the fairgrounds, for food prep. Support our students and the band – signup to help!
