Crash Detroit Festival of Street Bands


Ms. Hartrick, our instrumental music teacher,  helps organize a free music festival in Detroit over the summer called Crash Detroit – Festival of Street Bands. They have brass bands traveling from all over the country to perform a free concert during the day in Lincoln Street Art Park on July 22nd. There is food, DIY instrument creation tables for the kiddos and great unamplified brass band music all day long. More info can be found at

We hope to see you there!

Welcome Back Picnic Date Change


The Welcome Picnic for STEM has been moved up a day to Wednesday, Aug. 30.  It’s still from 6 to 8 p.m.

We also are still in need of volunteers to help with the free activities and food sales that night.  Responsible STEM graduates are allowed to help run activities, if they would like.

Please see our SignUp Genius if you are able to help get the year off to an awesome start!  We had to lobby the district to keep our welcome picnic, so please help us show why we love this event.  Thanks!
