Your “spot” in the fall marching show is contracted based upon camp attendance. Once the marching show is written, it costs hours of work and additional funds in order to “close a hole” should a student drop from the program. This affects EVERY student in the band – there are no “benchwarmers” in the program. Everyone has an assigned spot written specifically for him or her to march. We need students and parents to be committed and follow through in order for our group to be successful.
Please tentatively plan to observe a Monday/Tuesday/Thursday full band rehearsal schedule after school starts. Fridays may be used for rehearsal, depending on the schedule for away football games. Depending upon availability of the stadium, one rehearsal each week will be held at night. A detailed calendar will be sent home with students after band camp. Please contact Mrs. Johnston ASAP should you have any questions or problems. The best time to call is from 10:30 am - 11:15 pm Monday through Friday - 648-5690, Ext: 2822. Voice mail is available 24/7. I will return your call as soon as possible.
YES! We are planning to perform at the Alamo Bowl Game and travel to San Antonio, TX for our bi-annual band trip between Christmas and New Year’s! It is possible to pay for your trip with fundraising/Nissan Stadium events if you start EARLY
The next event we will be staffing will be the CMA’s in June. All of these events are credited toward your student’s fundraising goals for the 17/18 school year. Information regarding each student’s fundraising goals will be available at band camp. This program can help students earn credit that can be applied toward band expenses. This is a great way to help the group and fund your band expenses at the same time. Please contact Mrs. Johnston at firstname.lastname@example.org if you or another adult (18+) are willing to train and volunteer. We can also work students 16 years and older.
Need another method to raise funds for camp???
Coke products can do this for you – please see the attached form if you would like to use this as a way to raise money for camp. We sell the products by the case – 20 ounce bottles/24 per case for $25. This provides $9 per case toward your students’ expenses. The next order deadline is May 25th.

Clarksville Marching Wildcats
For our new CHS Wildcat families: we provide many meals to our students both during Band Camp and Marching Season. We call this
Tailgating! This is the best way we find, to make sure your student gets the meals they need to perform and feel well,
in addition to keeping everyone safe and accounted for when we eat as a large group.
The small fee for each student is included in your Band Camp fee, and will then be collected again before Marching Season in the fall.
