CCHS Marching Band 2019

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, Jessica Vaughn, and Craig Westwood, 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.

For more information about the award-winning Cherry Creek High School Marching Band, please explore the rest of this website or contact Mr. Libby or Ms. Vaughn.

MARCHING BAND 2022-2023 UNIFORM INFORMATION

Registered Marching Band Students will receive Uniform Information including sizing, scheduling in late June. However, due to continued Supply chain challenges, we are providing the information about Dinkles now. Your prompt attention to these details is essential for your CCCHS Marching Band Uniform Requirements.

 

DINKLES (MARCHING BAND SHOES)

 

The Marching Band’s first full-uniform event is Saturday, August 20th. All Students are required to wear Dinkles at all Full-Uniform events.  Due to continued supply chain challenges nationwide, Student Dinkles should be secured as soon as possible.  As most bands hold their band camps in July and August, the suppliers will undoubtedly face shortages, depleted stock and back-orders by August 1st.

For the 2022-2023 Marching Band Season, Students have two options.

  1. Order your Dinkles on-line before May 31st
    • See below for additional Information
  2. Buy a pair of Dinkles from the Marching Band Inventory for $5.00.
    • Most of the in-stock shoes are about three years old, but all have suitable soles to last a full season.
    • As the inventory is limited, we encourage parents to email Emily Rissmiller, CCHS Marching Band BPA Chairperson, by MAY 31, 2022.
    • Email: emilyrissmiller00@gmail.com . Email with your student size, clarifying men’s or women’s sizing, Student’s Last name, first name and grade in the fall.
    • Email Subject line: DINKLES- WOMEN’S SZ 8, STUDENT LAST NAME, STUDENT FIRST NAME
    • Stock shoes will be assigned to students on a first-come, first-serve basis. We will respond to all Dinkle email requests by, in the order they are received by June 1st, confirming you’re your Requested Student size Dinkles are in-stock and reserved in their name. The $5.00 will be added to the student account, payable in August.
    • IF there are no remaining shoes available in the size requested, you will be notified by June 1st, and therefore, will need to order the Dinkles on-line.
    • Currently, there are about 100 pairs of in-stock Dinkles, with Women’s sizes ranging from 5 ½ to 10 and Men’s sizes 8 to 16. The popular sizes will be reserved quickly.

Ordering Dinkles

All CCHS Marching Band Instrumentalists wear the DINKLES GLIDE MARCHING BAND SHOE for all Uniformed Performances. See CCHS BPA Google Calendar for Performance dates. Dinkles are usually $30-$40 with shipping.

https://www.bandshoppe.com/shop/shoes/band-shoes/dinkles-glide-marching-band-shoe-104055/
