We had a great performance on Friday at Meet The Eagles! Check out some great photos of our band students (including several band students on the cheer squads and walking with their teams) on the CHS Facebook page:
Our Fundraise Genius fundraiser launched this week! You can track our progress here:
It’s not too late to get in on the action – log in to Fundraise Genius to upload your contacts who you think might financially support the Mighty Eagle Band. Our goal is 5 donors per student, but the more you list, the more money we can bring in! All funds raised will go to the Band Booster to help support the band. If we meet our goal of $10,000 raised, the top fundraiser student gets to take the clippers to Mr. Dunning’s head!
Money for UNT day is due no later than Monday 8/22. Bring $5 cash or check (made out to CHS Band Booster) to the band office.
Thank you to those who already signed up to chaperone this trip. If you still want to chaperone, please sign up through Charms to be added to the waiting list. UNT only allows one chaperone per 10 students.
Parents who want to attend the game without chaperoning can purchase discounted tickets through the Green Brigade.
We still need several parent volunteers to assist Friday night at the CHS/NCHS game. We specifically need:
- Pit crew – meet the band just before halftime, assist moving equipment onto the field for the show and back off. Very short job, and a great seat for the show!
- Concession stand – two different shifts available. Football concessions are a huge part of our fundraising activities for the year.
Volunteer opportunities are posted to Charms. For more information, contact volunteer coordinator Lorna Tran at email@example.com.
