    Letter Jackets 2021-2022

    Believe it or not, but it is time to be fitted and order your letter jackets for next year. GET THIS DONE NOW if you want to have it in time for cool fall weather. Remember, the only two jackets allowed in the stands are letter jackets or the member jackets (purchased through registration). We will not be able to chase you down later if you didn’t read this part of the newsletter :)

    A letter jacket will be presented to senior and junior students who have served the high school band program well.

    A student who is not a junior or senior may qualify for a letter jacket provided they:

    1.Earned a position and performed in an All Region Band**

    2. Earn a First Division on a Class One Solo

    **9th Graders who place in the 9th -Grade Region Band must also audition for High School Region in order to have their placement count towards letter jacket qualification.

    After reviewing the preceding information, if you feel that you meet the requirements for qualification, please fill out this form HERE - it will be sent to the letter jacket company Mid June. From there, you will receive instructions on when and where you will be fitted.

    Congrats to our qualifying students!

    Calendar

    MAJOR dates for the ENTIRE 2021-2022 school year have been entered into the band calendar. We hope this helps with planning. Please understand these dates could be “subject to change.”


    We are aware that our calendar is not easily viewed on cell phones...please use a desktop or laptop computer. Apparently this is a Google / Weebly issue, for multiple organizations. Stand by!

    Spring Trip 2022!

    It’s happening - the CHHS Band is heading to the BEACH!
