Welcome to LCNBands.com

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?

WINTER DRUMLINE 2ND PAYMENT DUE: 11/21
The second payment of $100 is due by the end of this week....and don't forget, after a one week grace period a $25 late fee will be applied to your child's account.  Checks can be written to LCN Band Boosters and either mailed to the p.o. box or dropped in the mailbox in the band room.

BOOSTER MEETING: 11/20
Our next super fun, super exciting booster meeting will be held this Thursday in the band room at 7:00.....bring your questions, your concerns, your cheery self and see what's happening with the boosters! 

SHEET SALE FUNDRAISER:
Nothing new here....just a reminder to sell those fabulous sheets!

MT CLEMENS SANTA PARADE: 11/28
Quick correction......Mr Griffith's email last week accidentally had the wrong date listed for the Santa parade....it's on Friday the 28th not the 21st.  See separate email for details.
CALL TIME: 10:00 AM
I know what you're thinking....what? 10:00? But I thought the parade starts at 10:00?  Well you're right but because they save the best for last and the Marching Crusaders have traditionally been the last group before the Big Man himself, we thought we'd save everyone from standing out in the cold any longer than necessary!  Last year we didn't step off until 11:15 so getting there at 10:00 gives everyone plenty of time to get lined up, warmed up, and pumped up!
DROP OFF: GRACE EPISCOPAL CHURCH - 115 S. MAIN ST
Please drop off your students in the parking lot at Grace Episcopal (corner of Church and Main.)  Carpool if you can...parking, even if just long enough to drop the kiddos, is pretty limited.
UNIFORMS:
Wear your full uniform and layer, layer, layer underneath that thing...we're always hoping for great weather but just in case! (I hope I didn't just jinx us!) If you don't have those hand and foot warmer thingies....you might want to consider grabbing some!  And the kids will not be returning to the church parking lot so you can't plan on bringing blankets and whatnot for extra warmth while they're waiting....check the forecast and dress appropriately.  Oh, and Santa hats are always fun if you'd rather wear that than your shako.
DECORATING INSTRUMENTS:
Sections, put your heads together and come up with something awesome....we are once again having a instrument/uniform decorating contest and there's a lot on the line....BRAGGING RIGHTS and CANDY CANES!!!! Flutes knocked it out of the park last year with their Christmas tree shakos...let's see if they can retain their title or if they'll get bumped!
DISMISSAL:
The kids will be dismissed directly from the end of the parade route (the parking lot at the now empty Mitt restaurant...143 N. Main.) Please plan on meeting us there at the end of the parade to collect your kids.

29TH ANNUAL CRAFTY CHRISTMAS CRAFT SHOW: 12/6
Again, I've created a separate email on this for easier reference....please mark this on your calendars though and plan on either volunteering or visiting that day!  You'll also see donation requests in the email....this is our biggest fundraiser of the year and we really do ask that every family please help us out by donating to the raffle baskets and the drinks for concessions.  Thanks so much!
We will be needing both student and parent help on both Friday night for set up and all day Saturday.  Jobs include things like concessions, 50/50 raffle, bake sale table, raffle baskets, etc and we have divided the day into shifts.  If you can help all day, great!  And if you can only stay for part of the day, that's great too!  http://www.signupgenius.com/go/409044dabad29a46-29th

CRAFT SHOW SIGNS:
One of our fabulous parents has created some pretty awesome lawn signs for this year's Craft Show (thanks Jen Jaworowski!) We have about 80 of them..... if you would like one for your yard (and trust me, when you see them you'll definitely want one!) you can pick one up at the booster meeting this Thursday or anytime in the band room until they're gone.  We do reuse these by putting stickers over the date so please plan on getting them back to us after the show....these signs are surprisingly expensive!

WINTER CONCERT: 12/4
I know, I know....we just had our super awesome fall concert and now we're talking about the Winter Concert already?!?  Booking JAPAC is tricky in December (go figure?!?) and so our holiday concert will be Thursday December 4th at 7:00.....and you won't want to miss it!

Thanks for visiting!
