We’re excited for the season to begin! We have quite a few competitions this year, as well as a trip to Dayton for WGI Championships… Can’t wait!
This year the cost for the program will be $600 per student. This amount includes costs for competitions, instructors, uniform, new floor, food for lunches and snacks, and transportation to and from the competitions.
Checks should be made payable to “LCHS MPA” and placed in an envelope with your student’s name and group, and deposited in the black box in the band room. As always, if you have financial concerns and questions, please let Mr. Stone know.
If you are interested in helping out this season, we we will need bus riders, truck drivers, food planning/prep/serving… Please contact our Color Guard parent rep, Michele Jones.

Prelims will be on Wednesday, April 3rd; semi-finals (if qualified) on Thursday, April 4th; and finals (if qualified) on Friday, April 5th. We will watch the World Class finals on Saturday evening.
We have the airline tickets, the hotel reservations, the rental vans, and will soon have the World Class finals tickets. The cost for the trip will be $1,300 per person. It will be an amazing experience for your student!
