Are you ready for BAND CAMP?!

 

You survived the first week of band camp!!!

The first week of band camp was a huge success!  We are extremely proud of your attitudes and work ethic!  Our upperclassmen did a fantastic job welcoming our rookies and we are off to a great start to our season.  Next week we continue to get to know one another, push further in our drill, and prepare for our first performance.  

Trojan Night is the last night of band camp (7/27).  Families are invited to join the Trojan Band for hamburgers, skits, a preview of this year’s show, and a special candle lighting ceremony.  I hope that you all can make plans to join us for this fun night!  The kids and staff look forward to showing off all of their hard work!

Please bring a dessert to share, it makes our dinner even better!  We ask that you bring something that can be picked up to eat and does not require a fork or spoon.  (cookies, brownies…)  The Trojan Band Shoppe will also be there for you to purchase and order band spirit wear!

Please tell your family and friends to plan to join us for our annual Trojan Night on Friday at 6:00PM.

Band Camp Starts Tomorrow!

I hope that you have enjoyed your summer with family and friends and are now ready for Trojan Band Camp! Make sure you remind your friends! This is going to be an AWESOME year! The more enthusiastic you are, the better it will be!

Band Camp is a fun, but challenging time and being prepared is key to having a successful 2 weeks! You should be drinking LOTS of WATER! Make sure to have a water cooler to bring with you to keep on the field for water breaks. The band room does have ice and water but with more than 200 students, you probably want to come prepared! Each day students should dress in shorts, t shirts, socks, and tennis shoes. NO sandals or crocs are allowed during outside rehearsal (you may bring extra shoes/socks for the inside portion of rehearsal. Sometimes the grass is wet and having another pair will keep you comfortable. Indoor rehearsal is a great time for sandals, they just can’t be worn outside because of the demand of marching on our feet.


How does the Trojan Band kick off band camp?

By having a POOL PARTY! Please join all your band friends at the Midtown Water Park (off Alabama Street) on Monday, July 16th, 5:30 PM – 8:30 PM. Please pay $3 for admission when you get there. We will have pizza for dinner! What a fun way to celebrate the start of a great season!

Bring some dessert to share if you can!!! Anything that doesn’t require a utensil, like brownies, cupcakes, cookies…!!!

Summer Jazz Performance on Friday!

The students who have participated in our summer jazz band will perform on Friday morning for the Carrollton-Carroll County Education Collaborative Summit that our school is hosting on Thursday and Friday. The students should know what to wear, but just in case they forgot: Black pants, socks, and shoes; black top (long or short sleeve is fine) – and Gold accents (could be a scarf, a tie, or part of the shirt, etc). This is a formal but fun performance. We are performing in conjunction with our acapella choir at the request of our superintendent, Dr. Albertus. This is a great opportunity for our school to showcase our fine arts programs and I am so proud of our band and choir! Students performing should report to the band room at 7:15AM so that we can be set-up in the MAC in time for our performance, which begins just after 8:00 AM on Friday morning.
