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…!!!

If you signed up for lunch, you MUST pick it up and sign for it! This is very important! If you signed your student up for meals, please make sure they know! Our cafeteria workers are working diligently to provide meals for our students and if they are not eating then they shouldn’t have signed up for it. It is too late to change your mind at this point, so please remind your child to eat the lunch that has been reserved for them. Students will NOT be allowed to leave campus to eat. Breakfast will be served in the band room and lunch will be served in the elementary school cafeteria.
There will also be some volunteer opportunities for parents during band camp. Follow the link to sign up: Thank you so much for signing up to help!

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.
July 23 – 27 • 8:00 AM – 9:00 PM:
Lunch and dinner will be provided for all students. Again, students will not be allowed to leave campus for meals. We will have LOTS of volunteer opportunities to volunteer during band camp.
