Welcome to

L'Anse Creuse High School - North Instrumental Music is under the direction of Mr. Daniel Griffith and assistant Mr. David Mety and includes four full concert bands, winter percussion ensemble and a marching band of 150+ members.  Both the Marching Crusaders and the LCN Percussion drumline are competitive circuit programs locally to the northern Detroit, Michigan area.

Crusader Bands have established a reputation of excellence through inclusion and integrity in marching, concert, and auxiliary programs. The band has consistently earned exemplary awards at MSBOA state competitions, receiving first division ratings in marching, concert, and sightreading contests.

What's happening right now?

Just a few things to remind you of as the school year is coming to an end.....

All paperwork, payments, and raffle tickets are due today.  If you received an email stating something is missing that you are certain you turned in, this means that the form was incomplete and so we still need to hear from you right away.  The only exception is the sports physical, which isn't due until July 6.

If you missed last Thursday's meeting and opportunity to complete or turn in paperwork, there will be a makeup meeting this Wednesday at 7 pm in the LGI room.  We will be structuring it a little differently to save some time.....we will be doing paperwork and payment collection from 7-8 and then a very brief overview of the year to come from 8-8:30....this way if you only need to drop things off or have some questions, you don't need to stay for both.

On Thursday of this week, final numbers and rosters will be sent to the drill writer to start working on the is imperative that all payments and paperwork are turned in by the end of the meeting on Wednesday, NO EXCEPTIONS.  If your balance is not paid in full at this time, you will forfeit your spot in marching band.  If you are unsure of your standing with payments and paperwork (and there are still a surprising number of people with stuff missing), I encourage you to log into CHARMS and/or attend Wednesday's meeting.  Don't find out the hard way that something was incomplete!

Come celebrate the end of another great year at our bd's Mongolian Grill end of year party on Thursday from 6-9!  Tickets are $22 adults and $10 kids ages 4-10 and include all you can eat stir fry, soup, salad, and soft drinks plus tax, tip and entertainment!  Tickets can be purchased this week in the band room from Mr G and Mr M or at Wednesday's meeting.

The lists were posted last week.....congratulations to all new and returning section leaders!   Please make sure that the students in your section have your contact information and/or Facebook group information and that you have communicated with them how you would prefer they get in touch with you when needed.  

Students, from here forward you are responsible for communicating directly with your section leaders if you will be missing a practice or late for practice.  Parents, please do not email....the kids are expected to be handling this themselves and I do not track or report absences.

Kiddos have the month of June off and the Monday/Wednesday practice schedule will start up again after the 4th of July.   In the meantime, don't forget to keep moving (or start moving if you're not already!), start backing off of the caffeine, and get and keep yourself me, you'll be glad you did!

Please submit sports physicals by July can mail them to the p.o. box (LCHSN Band Boosters P.O. Box 366 New Baltimore MI 48047) or bring them with you to that first marching band rehearsal (7/6)   Forms can be found at the American High School Athletic Association website (we just need the two page form, not the long form)

Because not much is happening for the month of June you will not be receiving weekly emails from me for the next few weeks (unless something important pops up)....I will start up again as we get close to rehearsals starting up again in July.  If, of course, you have any questions between now and then feel free to email....I will still be checking daily and am happy to answer any questions that you might have.

Thanks for visiting!
