2015 Marching Band Music Distribution

Attention all 2015 Trojan Pride Marching Band Members...

Next Friday, April 17th, during the period 5 band class next year's field show music will be distributed to all band members.  Any incoming 8th graders who are marching should plan on attending this meeting during their lunch time (I suggest bringing a bag lunch on that day and bringing it to the meeting).   There will be several rehearsals (during period 5) of the marching band music before the end of the school year in the hopes that band members will gain an understanding of their part before being turned-loose to practice on their own over the summer months.

Trip Meeting Reminder...

This is just a reminder to all band and choir students participating in the fall trip (Oct. 3-6) that you need to be present (along with 1 parent/guardian) at one of the two planned trip meetings.  Meetings are scheduled for tonight, Thursday, April 9th and Friday, April 10th at 7 PM.  Itinerary will be reviewed, student costs discussed and permission/health forms and payment envelopes distributed.

Fall Music Trip Registrations due by Wednesday March 25th!

All high school Fall Music Trip registrations are due by Wednesday, March 25th!  This information is necessary at this point to determine the financial aspect of the trip.  Items such as hotels, busses, food, etc...must be reserved far in advance of the October 3rd departure.  In addition, in order to place a exact cost per student on the trip we need to know how many students plan on attending.  If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact Mr. Dettmar or Mrs. Culbertson to discuss.  If we do not receive your trip registration by Wednesday we will assume you will not be attending, and will begin our travel plans accordingly!
