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 120+ 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 sight reading contests.

It's starting!....It's Time!...

Marching Band Season is HERE!!

MARCHING BAND PRACTICES!! – Marching Band Practices begin July 8th, and will run every Monday & Wednesday in July, from 5:30pm til 9:10pm. So, Students! Enjoy this weekend, and rest up! Then, on Monday the 8th, be ready to start working, and don't forget water and your backpacks, sunblock, hats, sunglasses, towels (even if your towel order isn't ready yet...bring one from home until then), etc.! AND, WATER!! Seriously. Don't forget your will really be a long, hot, muggy day while you're working out there if you're not hydrated. **PIT Crew & Props Parents, please plan on attending the meeting during practice on Monday at 7:40pm until 9pm to go over the needs for this year's show!**

Tupperware Fundraiser – July 1st kicks off the LCN Bands Tupperware Fundraiser (with Band Mom, Sheryl L)! Attached you'll find a flier explaining how the fundraiser works, and in it, our exclusive link to use. Please make sure family & friends are using that link because this fundraiser is one that students will earn money for their individual Charms accounts to put towards the upcoming Disney Trip! 

PLEASE NOTE:Just make sure that any orders online have your student's name on the COMPANY line so we know which account to credit. For now, that link can be shared, but on July 8th (our first Marching Band Practice), order forms can be picked up from the Band Room. Happy selling!!

World's Finest Chocolate Bars – If you're still looking to supplement your band account, we'll have a new shipment of chocolate bars to sell soon! Chocolate bars will be available again after July 8th.

Please see Mr. Griffith or Mr. Mety if you're interested in a box.

Band Parent Meeting – Thursday, July 18th is our next Parent Meeting in the Band Room. Mark your

Jimmy John's Stadium – LCN Bands Families are invited to come out August 10th to Jimmy John's Stadium, where we'll enjoy a picnic buffet & students will be playing the National Anthem before the game starts! As soon as we get it, we'll send out the link to purchase tickets for this event! Until then, mark your calendars!

We also still have the fundraiser though Mr. Paparelli. He works for Jim Riehl's Friendly Chrysler-Jeep dealership.  Anyone who purchases a car through him, will now receive $50 for their child's band account and $50 for the band.  Just mention LCN Band and the child's name to receive credit. Can be anyone you know purchasing.

Kroger community rewards program is easy, just enroll with your Kroger Rewards card and a percentage of your normal purchases go to the band.   If you don't already have an online account, create one and enter your Kroger Card number.  Then click Kroger Community Rewards under the Savings & Rewards tab.  Use the NOP# TY146 when you get to the enrollment screen.  Then leave it to Kroger to donate quarterly.

Amazon Smile is another way for LCN Band to get credit for your normal shopping.  Just log in to amazon by using the special link and shop as normal.  You will need to register and select L'Anse Creuse North Band Boosters as the organization.  Bookmark the link, because you must log in through the link for your purchases to count.
