The Band Boosters have set preliminary plans for Band Camp 2021, to be held in August on the Trenton HS Campus. Please download the attached flyer and save the dates in your calendars.
The January Band Boosters Meeting will be on Monday January 18 at 630pm. Meeting will be held at On Your Side Family Services, 2801 West Jefferson (at West Rd) in Downtown Trenton. Please be sure to bring a mask.
Just in time for the holidays, help the Trenton Band Boosters while showing your love for the THS Marching Band! Several styles available including tees, sweatshirts, and hoodies in youth and adult sizes up to 4X. Share the link with family and friends all over the world so they can support our Marchers. All orders will be shipped directly to the recipient of your choice. For a guaranteed Santa delivery, orders MUST be placed by December 3, 2020.
All proceeds will go to the Trenton Band Boosters, supporting the bands at THS and AMS.
As we head into the second trimester, I must thank all of the parents and students for following all health and safety protocols requested by THS and by me over the last eight months especially during the face-to-face period. We did not have any Covid-19 infections while rehearsing using safety equipment and protocols.
As we begin the second 3rd of our year, I cannot say that I know what's coming. The first concert was cancelled and it appears that there isn't any way the Solstice concert event can take place in December. I had planned on doing a remote or live broadcast of student performances but that too seems impossible with no face-to-face or in-school rehearsals. I am putting together some ideas to at least have a recorded department holiday special to have a December performance of some sort. I will talk to the second trimester students next week.
Stay safe and have a happy Thanksgiving!
