This week with the band (8/21-8/27)

BAND CAMP is in full swing!  Every day this week from 1pm to 8 pm at Crosby Elementary School. Just a couple of reminders for this week.

• PARKING First and foremost there is NO parking along the building (gymnasium wall) and NO double parking along the back row of the parking lot. We realize that parking is very tight here but there can be NO exceptions.  The back row and along the building MUST be kept open at all times for pedestrians to safely cross into the parking lot. This is also the ONLY access point for emergency vehicles into the rear of the building. At the end of the night when you arrive to pick your child up you may have to park out towards the street. Your cooperation is very much appreciated.

• MEETING , there is a general information meeting Monday August 22nd in the Crosby cafeteria at 6:30 PM We will talk about the upcoming year and answer questions.

Did you know…

As the school year ends and summer begins, it’s time to think about relaxing with your friends, family vacations and of course, Marching Band!! While the new school year is 2 months away, there will be lots of activity starting right away with Freshman Marching, Sectionals and Full Band Rehearsals…and that’s just July and August. Then comes band camp (dates here)! This will be an overwhelming time for new new students and parents alike. There is so much going on, it’s important to stay on top of all that is happening.

We have put together a Did You Know list to help you through this. Please also feel free to reach out to any parent at any time if you’re not sure of something. Looking forward to another successful marching season.

Freshman Parent Buddy Program


Remember your Freshman year??  The Freshman Parent Buddy program is finally getting off its feet.
This year we want to connect Freshmen Parents with a Buddy that will help them get through the year.
These buddies would be responsible for answering questions and general guidance for an assigned Freshman family.
If you are interested in being a buddy to one or more freshmen parents, please email Michele Milgrim at [email protected].  Thanks!
