CHERRY CREEK HIGH SCHOOL MARCHING BAND
The Cherry Creek High School Marching Band has a long standing tradition of excellence. Under the direction of Tim Libby and Sara Wynes, this group of talented student musicians has earned awards for excellence in performance both on and off the marching field. Students develop and improve their musicianship, leadership and work ethic in order to carry on that tradition with each new school year.
The Marching Band holds a two-day mini camp after school in May, a one-day camp in July, and two weeks of band camp just before school starts in August. During the fall, the band rehearses after school three days a week.
The CCHS Marching Band performs at school events including Spirit Day, pep rallies and football games, and competes in several marching competitions each season.
The band also performs annually in the Littleton Western Welcome Week Parade. In even-numbered years, the band performs in the Denver Parade of Lights and travels to either California or Florida for a variety of exciting performances.

Wondering what to donate?
How about donating a happening. Happenings are parties that you create to support the band. You decide on a theme, activity, location, and cost. Attendees purchase “tickets” to the happening at the auction. After the auction, you host the party and have a great time.
Or just donate a bottle of wine for the wine grab.
But we also accept artwork, gift cards, sports memorabilia, etc. The ideas are endless. Remember, all donations are tax deductible and funds raised go to support ALL of the Cherry Creek Bands.
For more information on the auction in general or how to donate, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hello Band Families,
Last week we had thunder and lightning delays and this week we had a tornado warning . . . WOW! THANK YOU to those of you who stuck it out and helped with the 8th Grade Chili night. Thank you for your donations from corn bread to sour cream to paper plates and bowls. Each was appreciated and needed. Thank you to those who set up, served & cleaned up as well as the faithful water crew and seat cover volunteers. Bellies were filled and we had a very happy group of 8th graders and our marching band as they headed to Stutler Bowl for the football game.
I would also like to shout out to the pit crew who help move the instruments that can not be carried! Thank you! After all the fun and excitement of Friday we had a group of people come to the Roark’s home and help build and paint props for the show. They are looking GREAT and we all thank you!
Speaking of props . . . we need someone with a truck (F 150 or larger) to help transport props to and from the competitions. You will gain free entry into the comp as well as help the marching band tremendously. This does not have to be an every competition commitment if you are not able to be at every one. Maybe there is more than one or two families with a truck that could help us out and it can be rotated or even just a one time deal.
- Competition dates are : Sept 28th, Oct 5th, Oct 12th, Tues Oct 15th & Tues Oct 29th for State.
- If you can help, please email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org

Attention Color Guard and Pit Families
You may have read in one of the recent Band Sunday email blasts, that we are not asking your two sections to provide food for any of our competitions this year. We know that you are plenty busy on those days!!
In place of that, we would like your help with stocking our supply of water bottles. These are used throughout the season for meals as well as on the bus on competition days. We are asking that each family donates either 2 cases (35 or 40 bottles) of water or $10. If you have already given to this, THANK YOU…disregard the rest of this!!
To make this as easy as possible, we are making next Saturday, Sept 14th a collection day. The band has practice at CCHS from 9-12 that morning. From 8:45 – 10:00 am that day, there will be food committee members on hand to take your cases of water (or money) right at the curb in front of the Fine Arts Building. You do not have to haul them all the way to the band closet! If your student would rather give money to their section leader, we can collect it that way as well.
