Show Announcement:

The 2017 Marching Band Show announcement was made to an anxious crowd at our Spring Parent meeting this past Tuesday and they were not disappointed. Mr. Carr used the following video to reveal that the Trojan Band will be performing a show titled “Twelve Seconds to the Moon” which honors mankind’s journey into space… from those first few critical seconds at Kitty Hawk to Armstrong’s “…Giant Leap for Mankind.” So watch the video below and prepare yourself for an exciting journey this coming fall! #Trojans12tothemoon
