Here we are in the middle of March. At this point last year, things were put on hold and cancelled… but this year, we’re starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Let’s be patient and do what we can when we can! It’s exciting!

March 21st is the long-awaited Boost-a-Thon sponsored by the Spartan Booster Club. From the chatter around the district office, this seems to be an event you don’t want to miss. Many individuals have worked many, many hours to pull this off and we’re looking forward to seeing our students and hearing their stories. Mark your calendars!
New for the 2020-21 school year…
Deb Parker is putting together a yearbook of the students from when they started in 7th grade until now. It will be 104 pages and color with a hardback cover. It will be reasonably priced (think ~$35 but we will let you know as soon as we firm up the budget) and we will offer senior pages to our senior families for a very reasonable cost (think ~$10-$15 a page).
It will include pictures from Disneyland, Ireland, Retreats, Concerts, Competitions, Parades, Football Games, 7/8 Night and more.
Please start gathering your digital images from the Fall of 2015 to now for uploading to Google Drive. A link with folders will be coming your way and probably some nagging emails from Deb.
We are looking for pictures of kids in groups of two or more, preferably with all faces visible!
If you are interested in helping Deb, email her and put, “Yearbook” in the Subject. Just because this past year has been bad, it doesn’t mean our memories have to be. Let’s celebrate all the good we have experienced over the years with this fabulous yearbook. More info to come…
Students from across the State of California auditioned for the California All State Ensembles. Selected students will participate in various Masterclasses as well as Virtual Concerts. This year, LCHS had three students selected for these ensembles.
Victoria Pak was selected to participate in the All-State High School String Orchestra! She participates in Advanced Orchestra as a violinist.
Elizabeth Pak was selected to participate in the All-State Junior High School Orchestra! She participates in the 7/8 Orchestra as a violinist.
Kaylee Kim was selected to participate in the All-State High School Wind Ensemble! She participates in the HS Marching Band and Concert Band as a flutist.
In order to boost spirits, we decided to create a commemorative t-shirt for Marching Band/Color Guard.
The theme is Keep Marching. Keep Playing. Anyone can buy the shirt!
You can have your shirt(s) delivered directly to you.
We hope this brings back memories, looks to the future and lifts your spirits.
Special thanks to Octavia Thuss and Henry for the design!

Donations can be made online with a credit card or by check sent to:
P.O. Box 1307

We would appreciate EVERYONE completing the registration information by October 1st so we can update our records.
Financial assistance is available, just please complete the form available in the registration link.
Special note to all high school families… There are two donation opportunities this year. The first one is the program contribution to help maintain the Instrumental Music Program as we currently know it. The second one is a student donation which is a straight donation to the program. Please remember that this year there will be no transportation costs or uniform costs. (Concert wear will be purchased separately on an as-needed basis.)
Your donations are 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. Thank you!
