Physicals for Marching Band

Hello Everyone

UIL is requiring all students who receive PE Credit through Athletics or Fine Arts to have a physical exam on file with the school. For many band students, this will be a new requirement but will also be an important requirement to maintain the safety and health of our students.

We’re asking that everyone try to get their physical as soon as possible. (The district has asked us to have them completed by May 1st.) I understand this will be very difficult for families. I apologize for the confusion on the deadline. Please try to get the physical as soon as you can.

Once you receive the physical, you can upload the doctors notes to the link below.

Band Physical Exams

Starting in the 2019-2020 school year, the UIL is requiring all students who receive PE Credit through Athletics or Fine Arts to have a physical exam on file with the school. For many band students, this will be a new requirement but will also be an important requirement to maintain the safety and health of our students.

You may choose any number of healthcare providers to complete this exam, but you MUST have them complete the UIL physical exam paperwork. No other documentation will be accepted by the campus, district, or by UIL to fulfill this requirement. The official UIL Physical Exam Document is attached to the button below, in addition to a flyer for our local MedSpring Clinic that is offering discounted physicals.

After completing the physical exam, the paperwork must be uploaded through THIS FORM: CHS Marching Band Physical Documentation


The deadline to submit all physical exam paperwork is August 1, 2019. Any student without a physical on this date will not be allowed to participate in any marching band activities.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this new requirement. Please let us know if you have any questions!

Band Electives for 2019-2020 School Year

KC Band Families,

There is one more week before classes are finalized here at CHS.

Students who are interested in enrolling in any band electives will need to drop another elective they’re already enrolled in. Please make sure the elective outside of the band program is something that is not required to graduate on your personal plan. Most students take random electives to fill in their schedule or decide to take an off period. We want to offer more opportunities for students to grow musically and perform!

If you’re interested in enrolling, please follow the link below to give us the information needed. Students will need to let us know what non-band elective to un-enroll them from.

Applied Music Class

Prerequisites: Band Director approval. Students must also be a member of the KCHS marching and concert bands

Course Description: Applied Music is designed for students with a need for a deeper knowledge of instrumental music. This course caters to individual students needs. The course covers a wide range of topics including, but not limited to: individual performance, introduction to music theory, small ensemble playing and jazz. These classes can only be taken in conjunction with a current band course

AP Music Theory

Prerequisites: Band Director approval. Students must also be a member of the KCHS marching and concert bands

Course Description: AP Music Theory requires a background in music theory as well as a familiarity with reading music.

Tuxedo Jacket & Pants

Families,

We are fitting gentlemen today and tomorrow, for black tuxedo jackets and pants if they've not been fitted yet for all-region bands earlier this year. Students should be taking them home and not storing them here at CHS. The black jacket and pant are the schools and need to be returned at the end of the year.

Students will be able to keep their white tuxedo shirt, bow tie and cummerbund they purchased earlier this week.

*Important*

Please make sure your child tries on the black tuxedo jacket and pant. We have many students will need to get their pants altered over the spring break and have ready for Pre-UIL. *Make sure pant material is NOT cut* We'll need to unhem pants for future use.
