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.
