Congrats to one of our Drum Majors, Colton Conley, on this amazing achievement!

In 2019, Colton competed in the Extemporaneous Speaking event in FFA, which involves each member to select a topic at random and formulate a 4 to 6 minute speech with only a 30 minute preparation period. Colton won the Louisiana State Extemporaneous Speaking competition in 2019, but unfortunately never got to compete at the national level due to COVID 19 shutting down the convention. But, Colton decided to compete again, taking 1st place in state in 2021 as well. This past Tuesday, he competed in the preliminary round of the national competition, where 47 competitors from across the nation compete for the top 16 spots to move on to round 2, and on Friday we found out that Colton was one of our winners! Now that he has made it through the first round, he will go on to compete in Indianapolis, Indiana in October at a chance for a National Title in Extemporaneous Speaking! Congratulations Colton and good luck in Indianapolis!

Band camp is in the books! Got a lot of great work done, and looking forward to an awesome year!

Registration and staggered start info!

Welcome Back NCHS students!

07/22/2021

Due to the HVAC system being replaced at NCHS, there will be no air conditioning at the school during band camp. Because of this, the times for camp have been greatly reduced. The times are now 8:00 am-11:00 am on Monday, July 26-Friday, July 30.

The parent meeting will also be rescheduled for a later date in order to ensure that we are able to meet comfortably. We apologize for the inconvenience.

It is crucial that students eat breakfast prior to coming to camp, wear sunscreen, wear appropriate clothing for outdoor activity (including athletic footwear), and drink plenty of water. We look forward to seeing everyone next week!

One more week until band camp!

07/07/2021

Happening soon! Can’t wait!

Our very own Wesley Clark was invited to the prestigious NSU Honor Winds Camp, an invitational camp for top performing students throughout Louisiana and other states. They put on outstanding concerts Thursday evening and Friday morning. Congratulations, Wesley!

Another year is in the books! I'm so proud of all that the band students have accomplished this year despite the challenges they faced. They have been a true joy to teach, and I will miss them over the summer or, in the case of our seniors, next year.

Band camp will be during the week of July 26-30 from 8:00 am-3:00pm in the NCHS Band Room/Practice Field. Students need to wear athletic clothing and shoes that are suitable for summer heat. They need to eat breakfast before arriving, wear sunscreen, and bring water and lunch (we will provide lunch on Friday). We will also perform for parents on that Friday (the 30th) evening at 6:00 pm followed by a meeting where you can receive information for the year.

Have a wonderful summer! Go Chiefs!
