The CHS Marching Band Received the Outstanding Musical Performance for AA division at the ISU Invitational. The band delivered a high quality performance and took 2nd place overall at the competition, despite the snow and rough weather. Congratulations CHS Marching Band! All the hard work over the last two weeks has really paid off a lot. Color Guard was only a few points from receiving an award and did a tremendous amount of cleaning this week. The CHS Marching Band will travel to Vallivue High School in Caldwell, ID to compete in the Treasure Valley Marching Competition on October 18 (see calendar for details).

A special thanks to the Boosters from the band for providing lunch, snacks, and helping with the equipment changes and chaperoning the buses. Thank you again for all you do!!!
