We are proud of the progress all of our student performers are making. Remember, all students participate in every aspect of the Drill Team Sequence, The Spirit Show, AND our Contest Show Spark! We just utilize everyone’s strengths in different ways.

Absence Form

Use the band calendar on the website.


If you feel like you will need to communicate an upcoming absence, please use the link below so the staff can track it.

Heat!

Hey Band! (Hey What?!)


It’s going to be HOT during band camp. We know, you know, we ALL know! Hydrate, eat smart, get sleep, wear sunscreen and smart clothes, get outside, and do some activities that will make you sweat before Monday.


The staff will be constantly checking the temperature and working within GCISD and UIL guidelines for the heat. There will be frequent water breaks!

Fan Pledge!

Mark your calendars for Friday, August 13th. After rehearsal we will kick off our biggest and easiest fundraising event of the year! Fan Pledge!

TMEA All State Etudes

The TMEA All State etudes are posted on www.tmea.org and on the band website. Learning and auditioning with these college level etudes are a huge part of our curriculum in the CHHS Band.


Print them off and get to work!


Slow and Steady. Clean and Clear. Happy Practicing!

Info From Our Boosters

Water Jugs Update

Jugs are still not in, but we should receive them soon! Since they haven't yet been shipped, boosters will still be setting up a water station for the kids each day. And since they'll be at CHHS next week, we can leave the water station up all day!


Students all know that it's their responsibility to show up to every rehearsal with a full jug/water bottle, but for those who haven't yet received their jugs, please let them know that they can refill their water bottles at the water station as needed.


If you are free to help set up (7:45am) or break down (4pm) the water station next week, please email Amy Rork at chhs.band.vp@gmail.com or text her at 817-228-1493.



Uniform Fittings!

For the first time since 2019, we're getting the band in their uniforms! We'll be doing uniform fittings Saturday, August 14, in the band hall. Fitting the kids is an all-hands-on-deck process, but no special skills are needed.


Here's how to sign up:

  1. Call your favorite band parent buddy to coordinate which shift you'll volunteer for together.
  2. Sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0a4daaae23abf85-uniform
