    Football season is here

    The band, color guard and football team are all working really hard to make this
    the best season EVER!
    The music program is incredibly fortunate to run the concessions which in return makes it one of our main fundraisers.
    The concessions doesn't run itself and is always looking for new recruits.
    There are many perks to being in the concession stands

    1. It's Fun
    2. You get into the game for free
    3. You only have to work half the game.
    4. It's fun
    5. Get to hear our band and color guard do their thing ❤️🖤
    6. It's fun
    7. We make $$$ for our kids.
    8. It's fun!!!!

    We are really fortunate that a lot of alumni help but we are in desperate need of new families to step up and help also.

    This is my last year heading up concessions along with Diana L. McLimans and we are on the look out for someone to take over next year. This year you would work along side of us so you know exactly what goes on. I promise it's FUN!

    What’s Happening

    View this Week's Complete Smoke Signal - September, 2018

    Home Football Games 3rd Quarter
    Students are free to walk about and get something to eat during the 3rd quarter. CPMC provides a free hotdog and water during this timeframe on the away side. The Wednesday prior to the home game and Friday prior to the game, students can pay for a Chick-Fil-A sandwich for $4 at the Cart of Wonders. They must pay at that time, and they can pick up their Chick-Fil-A sandwich during 3rd quarter at the away stands only. If students want something else to eat, they must purchase from the home or away stands. They are required to be back in the stands by the end of 3rd Quarter.

    Involvement is the only way we can make this busy organization work.
    Don't sit back and watch, we need you!

    Band Uniform Fittings

    Every Monday and Wednesday

    Our band needs to look their best and their uniforms must be fitted and repaired and altered.

    Warm-up suits will also be fitted for new band members and any previous band students needing replacements. Parents can also purchase warm-ups. This is an easy way to step in and help. No prior experience needed!.
