Special Note about Hydration –

It is so important to us that you are proactively doing what you can to stay healthy to¬†be able to fully participate as a Member of our Marching Band. Here‚Äôs a note from Mrs.¬†Frashure, the Head Athletic Trainer for CSHS. ‚Äú the biggest thing for your kids, just as it is¬†for athletes, is that hydration comes in the three days leading up to a performance . If¬†they come into the day in a deficit, they will not be able to drink enough water the day of¬†to offset what they will lose during practice, competition, etc.‚ÄĚ

– Mr. Seale

We Need a Videographer!!

Our program needs someone who can be dedicated to using our video camera to record our FB halftime shows every week. This is not a difficult task, but it is so important to our learning and evaluation progress. This position can be filled by more than one person if needed. Perks: You get to go up in some pretty cool press box areas at various stadiums in our area. Please email Mr. Seale directly if you are interested — jseale@csisd.org.
