Overwhelmed yet? Don’t sweat it. Each Sunday I will send out a reminder of upcoming reminders for the week. As events get closer I will also send home paperwork and post on this website with info. Please make sure that those dates are free if they apply to you. Every single date on here is important and will amount to your kid growing and having fun making music. Below is a PDF of our Trojan Band info that I sent home this past Wednesday. Please print it out and put it somewhere safe so you are aware of our games.  Trojan Band Week of Info 

Have a great rest of your weekend!
