Theme shirts

Take a peak at the new theme shirts.

We will be ordering theme shirts this week. Amy and Ellen will be collecting band student t-shirt sizes on Tuesday night at practice. Please remind your student to see one of them.   Each marching band student will get a shirt FREE.

If any parent would like to order a shirt please respond back with your name, phone, shirt size(s). Each shirt will be $10. Please let me know by Tuesday evening if you would like to order a shirt.



If you missed the last fitting for varsity jackets, Quest is coming back on Tuesday, September 12 at 5:45.

If you are interested in ordering a jacket, payment is due before I can place the order.  Money would be due September 15th. 

Please note that if this order is less than six jackets total, there will be an additional $10 charge added.

Please let me know if your child is coming to the fitting so that I can give Quest a head count.

Thank you!

Chaperones Needed

Chaperones are needed for home and away football games, parades, and competitions. If you are able to give your time for any of these events, you will not regret it. You will truly enjoy the interaction with the band members as they carry on the winning tradition of the Marching Band. Chaperone duties include carrying stand music to the stands at football games, placing seat covers on stadium seats for the band members to sit on, passing out plumes before they perform, sitting in the band section during the 3rd quarter of football games while the students are getting something to eat to make sure no one goes through the band section, checking uniforms after we get back to the school, taking roll call on bus trips, assisting the pit crew with loading and unloading the equipment truck, and being prepared to help the students with last minute malfunctions such as sewing on a button or safety pin snaps that break.

All chaperones must have current clearances on file with the school district. Clearance information can be found at Once you have your clearances, please drop them off to the Executive Secretary Michelle Sarokon, located in the building at 623 W. Penn St.

Sign up for Football games and parades.

Sign up for competitions.

While there are game times showing at 7 pm, arrival times will differ obviously for travel time etc. This information will be communicated as soon as possible!

If you have ANY questions, feel free to contact the chaperone coordinator.

THANK YOU Uniform Committee

A big thank you to all who lent a helping hand or offered words of encouragement to the uniform committee as we have worked to get all uniforms ready to go. A special shout out to Amy and Andy Fritz!!!!

Volunteer – Get Involved – Support the Band!

It takes a village to raise and child AND support the band.

We have several opportunities to get involved.


Ironing Bee – Thursday, August 10 from 6 – 8.  Bring your iron and ironing board to press uniforms and make our band look great while enjoying light refreshments and getting to know one another.  No RSVP is required, just show up!

Band Camp Meals – The students work hard during band camp and look forward to the meals/refreshments we provide but it takes a small army to feed them.  Please consider contributing your time and/or nourishment.

Concession Stand – Both the car show and football concession stand proceeds benefit EVERYONE in the band.


Varsity Jackets

Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors! 

Band Jacket Order Time


Sophomores, juniors and seniors who have not ordered band varsity jackets ……quest will be at school Tuesday, August 8 at 5:45 for fittings.  Money is due 8/18. Orders cannot be sent in without payment.


All sophomores, juniors, and seniors are eligible to order band jackets.

Sample jackets from Quest Embroidery will be at band practice at 5:45 on Tuesday, August 08, 2017 and Tuesday, September 12, 2017 for students to try on for sizing.  As always, parents are welcome to come for sizings.  A jacket will cost $140.00 through extra-large (XL).  Tall and up to 5X sizes are available at an extra cost of $10 for each extra X or Tall.  Since the jackets take up to 6 weeks to make, we place two orders to speed up the shipments for most; the second order will allow others to consider and place later.  Please know that if we do NOT have at least six jackets in an order, an additional $10 per jacket is charged for that smaller order.  This should not be an issue for the first order; second orders are historically smaller.  If you know that your child will be ordering a jacket, we suggest taking advantage of the first order opportunity.

Policy on payment: Band Boosters will pay ¼ of the cost for each year of band membership that has been completed.

Years of Band Completed                           Student’s Portion to Pay

0                                                                                        $ 140.00

1                                                                                        $ 105.00

2                                                                                        $ 70.00

3                                                                                        $ 35.00

4                                                                                           Free

In about November of the student’s senior year or when a student moves out of the school district, the Band Boosters will reimburse them for the additional years of band service that have been completed since buying their jackets.  If a student completes 4 or more years of band service, then their jacket will end up not costing them anything.

In order to place the first jacket order, we would need payment no later than Friday, August 18; payment for the second order will be needed by Friday, September 15.  Checks should be made payable to CHS Band Boosters with your child’s name noted on the memo line.   We will not order a jacket until it is paid for, and these will be the only times to order this year.
