The mission of the Carroll High School band program is to use music and excellence to learn how to be successful in life.

  • Goshen Invitational itinerary is HERE. Buy pre-sale tickets for Goshen at the parent preview on Thursday, Sept 12. Cost is same as at the gate: $7. No waiting in line, and Carroll gets to keep half of the cost of each ticket sold! Just look for our treasurer, Cindy Sparks, that night. Not sure who she is? Ask someone to help you find her!
  • Please donate items for feeding the kids at the competition on Saturday. Sign up list is HERE.
  • Parents learn from Kids: In the spirit of appreciating not just what OUR kids do, but what ALL the kids in the marching band world do, we are asking that AT LEAST ONE PARENT (but both if possible) show up to the band field at 12:50 pm on Saturday, Sept 14. Students are going to teach parents/guardians how to do some of what we have been working on. You will very quickly discover how hard it is to do the basics of what we do, let alone some of the incredibly challenging things we’re asking them – And they are achieving. This will also provide some insight into how others do things, and hopefully gain a level of respect for all of the groups you see on the field!
  • Parents! If you are wanting to take your student home from a competition (instead of them riding the bus) you MUST fill out THIS form prior to the day of the event. Reminder that they will need to ask another student to be responsible for unloading and putting away their instrument and/or uniform. Your student must also sign out with their bus chaperone before you take them home.
  • Band and guard students can apply for a scholarship to help pay fees. The Elizabeth Mundroff Memorial Scholarship, in memory of a beloved band student gone from us too soon, can be applied for HERE. Deadline to apply is Sept. 10.
  • Please see the "Fundraisers" section below to learn how your help is needed at the Johnny Appleseed Festival, Sept. 21 & 22. In addition to signing up to work the festival, ALL families need to donate supplies. This is our biggest fundraiser of the year. Thanks for helping!
  • Parents, register your marching band student with OPS SportsWare-Injury Tracking Software. More info is here.**
  • The fourth band payment will be due by October 1. If you have that amount in your SIA, it will be automatically withdrawn unless you tell the treasurer not to. You can write a check or pay online (PayPal) thru Charms. Make checks payable to "Carroll Band Boosters". All checks can be brought to a booster meeting, dropped off in the Booster Box in the band room, or mailed to: Carroll Band Boosters • 429 E. Dupont Road, PMB #75 • Fort Wayne, IN 46825

  • We have a great, and fairly easy, fundraising opportunity for the band! Kuehnert Dairy Farm has asked the Charger Pride to help with their Fall Festival on Friday evenings. We are signed up to work on 4 Fridays that we do not have home football games. We only need 8 people each Friday – including at least one adult (but can be more). Students are encouraged to work, but need to be at least 14 yrs old. The shifts are on 9/20, 9/27, 10/11, and 10/25 from 5:30-10:30 pm. Kuehnert Dairy Farm is located at 6532 W. Cook Rd. Please follow THIS link to sign up. Contact Lisa Tucker with any questions.
  • The Johnny Appleseed Festival will be on 9/21/19-9/22/19! The Charger Pride has a booth at the festival where we sell “Heaven in a Bowl,” a fruit cobbler with ice cream. Our cobbler is a favorite to many that attend the festival! This is an “All Hands on Deck” fundraiser, where we need as many parents/kids to help as possible! Working a shift at this event qualifies for 1 Opt-Out credit! We have a competition in Toledo on the Saturday of the festival. This means that a lot of parents, that would normally be working at the festival, will be traveling with the band to Toledo. If you are not planning to travel to Toledo, we ask that you please sign up to work at our booth on that Saturday. THIS IS OUR BIGGEST FUNDRAISER OF THE YEAR!! WE NEED YOUR HELP TO MAKE IT A SUCCESS!! Here is the link to sign up for a shift:
  • In addition to working at the festival, we are also asking that each student donate the following (this is also critical for us to have a successful fundraiser): Freshman: 3 boxes yellow cake mix, 3 cans apple pie filling, 3 cans peach pie filling Sophomores: 3 boxes spice cake mix, 3 cans apple pie filling, 3 cans peach pie filling Juniors: 3 boxes white cake mix, 3 cans apple pie filling, 3 cans peach pie filling Seniors: A $10 gift card for Walmart/Sam's Club (plan ahead to order through Scrip) and a 16lb bag of charcoal.
  • Mad Anthony Laundry Detergent! Order form is HERE. For anyone not familiar with this fundraiser, they offer the following for sale:
-Laundry Detergent - comparable to Tide and Gain - 5 gallon bucket
-Fabric Softener - comparable to Downy and Gain - 5 gallon bucket
-Blue Liquid Dish Soap - 5 gallon bucket
-Dishwasher Pods - 250 ct

For a family of 4, the 5 gallon bucket of laundry detergent can last about 6 months! This is a great fundraiser to help boost your student's SIA! The profits are split -50% to the band's general fund, and 50% to your student's SIA. The profits range from $5 – $20 – depending on which item it is, and the total number of products sold as a group. The 5 gallon buckets are usually in the $20 profit range – so for each bucket – about $10 goes into your student's SIA! Checks can be made out to CHS Band Boosters. This sale ends on Friday, 9/20/19. Please put completed order forms with payment in the band box by this date. We usually receive the products within about 2-3 weeks after the sale ends. We will send out details on pick up times, once we have that information. You can contact Lisa Tucker at or Amy Lee at with any questions.
