Schedule of Events

For any questions about the schedule please see the Schedule of Events page.


Please join the 2023 CHS Marching Band Remind by following the link:


All students participating in marching band are required to have a current physical submitted on FinalForms. Physicals are good for 13 months from the date of the doctors signature. If you/your student does not have a completed physical exam, please get one scheduled ASAP. Students without a current physical exam will not be permitted to continue participating in marching band until one is complete.

Final Forms

Please submit a copy or picture of the physical exam on FinalForms. Additionally, all students must have updated emergency contact information on FinalForms and join the “CHS All Year Coed Marching Band.” In emergency situations, the contact info on FinalForms will be used to reach parents/guardians.


If you are in need of marching shoes for the season, I would encourage you to get the ordered ASAP. Call or go to Taylor Band, tell them you’re with the Coventry Band and that you need marching shoes. They will help you get them ordered. If you go to the store, I believe they have some for you to try on so you make sure they fit. You’ll need shoes for picture day (August 10). The shoes usually take about 2 weeks to come in once you order them, so you’ll want to order them soon.

Black Shorts

Everyone will need a pair of plain black shorts to wear for our Parent Summer Preview. If you don’t currently have a pair of black shorts, please get them so you have them for August 4th.

As always, please let me know if you have any questions.

Go Comets!

Mr. Cummings
