Our Mission ...

 As Members 

 We provide the gift of music to our community, our school, and to ourselves. Our voices are strong and together - we are one band.  We enjoy the challenges, opportunities, and achievements that come with working as one.  We lift and serve with patience, teamwork, and integrity. 


As Leaders

 Our example provides guidance, inspiration, and vision to all we encounter. We know that everyone must contribute in order to be successful. We serve the band, the school, and our community know that we are a part of something bigger than ourselves. 

As Musicians

 We submit our full effort to every task. Our passion for music drives us to learn and discover new things every day. We use musical expression to guide our practice and direct our performance. We know that the sum of us all is greater than us individually.


As Falcons 

 We represent the standards of our school professionally and within spirit. Our footsteps leave a legacy of success and proud tradition. We step forward by pushing past our limitations. 

It is our mission to be the change that is needed to create culture, connection, and cooperation within our school, our community, our Performing Arts Department, and with in the band. #CHSFalconBands

It's NOT About ME, it's not about YOU, but US!...

It is NOT about me, or even you, but US! – We must do things differently in band. We must be Interdependence. Interdependence is more than independence, and not dependent. We take pride in our independence, while recognizing our co-dependence on our band mates, which results in interdependence with us all. We Follow these simple I can statements...

1.      I Can... find the good in everything that we do. We develop, cultivate, and deepen our love for music and how it connects us with ourselves, those around us, our community, and the overall culture of where we perform.

2.      I Can... be the success in band. Success is nothing without connections and relationships.

3.      I Can.... Improve wherever I start. We all have a starting point of individual musicianship, but this starting point does not determine our ending point – this is determined by our attitudes, and what we are willing to do/change to reach for our end point.

4.      I Can... Make Music FUN. Music should be FUN but also demanding. It should stretch, strengthen, and inspire everyone.

5.      I Can... Improve my abilities. Trophies and accolades are simply markers of accomplishment but overall UNIMPORTANT and INSIGNIFICANT **IF** there is no lesson, growth, or struggle associated with them. We should be able to view any of these and remember the journey more than just the award.

6.     I Can... Treat everyone with respect. If we trample people on our way to the top the top really is the bottom. We can find ways to reach the “top” of the pile by lifting those around us, and those with whom we compete against. We are all in the same activity, and everyone should be lifted.

7.      I Can... Have Pride. Pride in our school, our band, and ourselves should be at the forefront of our actions.

8.      I Can.... Thrive in a competitive, yet learning atmosphere. Competition has its place. Competition provides a motivation to improve, it is merely the desire to be the best in whatever we do. It should never be used as the fuel to hate/dislike another individual/band, activity/sport but simply provide something to move us forward.
