All registration links and donation forms are online for Marching Band and Color Guard. Please feel free to donate with a credit card or a check. You can also request financial assistance on the form as well. If you are paying by check, you can bring that with your paperwork. Make all checks payable to, “LCHS MPA.”
All parents/guardians of Marching Band and Color Guard students should fill out the form. The information will serve as our database to contact and inform you throughout the year.
Transportation donations for band and color guard are now given to the MPA. If you play a sport, then you need to pay into ASB’s transportation donation. Please do not pay ASB for Band and Color Guard’s transportation donation.
The donation sheet lays out the needed financial support to make our program work. The Instrumental Music program receives minimal district funding and we rely heavily on your generous hearts and keen investment in your child’s musical experience.
We will be having a collection table by the Auditorium to help collect all the paperwork and donation checks beginning Monday, July 29th at 12:45pm. Please make all donation checks payable to “LCHS MPA.”

Volunteers Needed in July
Due to the uniforms not being back from the summer cleaning, we will fit uniforms prior to evening rehearsals on August 13th, 15th, and 20th.
We will need two bus riders and a shuttle driver to get the students to Band Camp at Cal Poly Pomona on Wednesday, July 31st. The shuttle driver will need to follow the buses to Band Camp and then bring the bus riders and truck driver back to LCHS. We will leave at 9am on Wednesday, July 31st, and return around 11:30am. The shuttle driver should have a car/van that seats an additional four adults.
Note: We NEED a shuttle driver and bus riders TO band camp, and bus riders for the RETURN trip!
We will need the same number of adults on the return trip coming back from Band Camp on Friday, August 2nd. Adults will need to meet at LCHS at 6:30pm, and return to campus around 9pm.
If you have never been to Band Camp, now is the time to check it out and see where your student will be spending their time.
If you are interested in volunteering for one of the above, please let Sandy Miller know.
July 31st – August 2nd
Band Camp is July 31st, August 1st, and August 2nd. We stay overnight at Cal Poly Pomona. We will be departing LCHS at 9am on Wednesday, July 31st, and will return on Friday, August 2nd around 9pm.
Students need to bring the following items to band camp:
- Bathing Suit
- Good Cross Trainer Shoes
- Your Instrument
- Sleeping Bag or Sheets
- Sun block
- Water Bottle (Mandatory, thank me later)
- Props for “Talent Night”
- Cell Phone to call your parents and tell them how much you love and miss them.
Do NOT even think of bringing:
- Video Game Systems
All your items must fit in ONE BAG since we are limited on space. And yes, it is possible to fit it in one bag.
While at band camp we will be working hard to begin the long process of learning and perfecting our show. It is vital for everyone to attend and participate to the fullest. We will also be having a lot of fun during and outside of rehearsals as well. It will be a great beginning to our show.
Summer has been awesome! As the end of summer draws near, I’m equally excited for the new school year. The season is already off to a wonderful start with music in students’ hands, leadership working hard to prepare for workshops and band camp, crazy cool props and stages being built for the show, and we already have drill for the first movement. It’s going to be a good year!
I love that our show takes an army to put together the final product. Each part is as important as the next as they all work to the same goal of making a great show for the kids to perform and show their talents. It’s amazing to see how our community comes together to support and set-up our students to be great! Thank you all for your help and support. Looking forward to showing you all the first glimpse of this year’s show on Friday, August 9th!
