Winter Guard – Dayton Trip Meeting

After the Friends & Family show on Thursday, we will have a brief parent meeting regarding the Dayton trip. (We leave one week from Tuesday!)

We’ll have all the info for you, so please be there.

We fly out of LAX and were thinking a carpool would be a good idea. Check your calendars now to see if you can volunteer to either drop off at LAX on Tuesday, April 2nd (flight departs at 10:25am) or pick up at LAX on Sunday, April 7th (flight lands at 1:45pm). Let’s discuss on Thursday.

Thanks!

Friends & Family Show – Thursday!

Winter Friends & Family Show
Thursday, March 28th
7:30pm – South Gym

This Thursday is our Friends & Family Show. The 7/8 Winter Drumline, 9-12 Winter Drumline, and Winter Guard will perform their shows!

Please invite everyone you know… This is our only “home” performance and your students have really worked hard to put these shows together! Please have your students invite their teachers… Many staff at the high school have no idea what a Winter Guard or Winter Drumline show is – This is a great time to let them know!

These are full performances in full attire… just as in a competition. There is a possibility that snacks may be served following the performances…

Hope to see you there!

Drumline & Color Guard – Payments Due

Just a friendly reminder that all payments for 7/8 Drumline ($50), 9-12 Winter Drumline ($500), and Winter Guard ($600 season & $1300 Dayton trip) are now due.

Please make checks payable to “LCHS MPA” and put in an envelope marked with your student’s name and group, and placed in the black locked box in the band room.

The Boosters fundraising money has now been deposited in the students’ accounts. Please contact Marshall Bohannon if you would like to use the funds in your student’s account.

7/8 Elementary Tour – March 22nd

This Friday, both the 7/8 Band and the 7/8 Orchestra will perform at each of the three elementary sites.

Call time for all 7/8 students will be 7:15am to load instruments and load the bus. We will need parent helpers to ride the bus with the students. If you are available and willing, please let Mr. Myers know.

They will perform at PCR and then PCY. At approximately 11:30am the students will have a pizza lunch in Memorial Park. We would appreciate donations of fruit (cuties, apples, etc.), paper plates, napkins, and cookies. We will also need several parents to help serve the lunch in the park. Please contact Sandy Miller if you are available to help or willing to donate.

After lunch, the students will load the bus and travel to LCE to perform. After the last performance, the students will return to LCHS, unload the bus, and be dismissed for the day.

If you have questions, please contact Mr. Myers.

Festival Volunteers & Donations

Each year we host a Festival for our students as well as students from the surrounding area.

At Festival, each group performs selected pieces and sight reading for several judges. The judges give them comments and a rating. It’s a great learning and performance experience for the students and their directors.

This year we will have 14 area schools coming to our campus to perform at Festival. The MPA will host a snack stand for the students to purchase snacks and drinks.

Volunteer

We need several helpers to get us set up on Friday morning, 7:30am-9am. Please consider helping… Many hands make for light work. Please let Cecilia Cheng know if you would like to help.

Donations

Sign Up to Donate Food Items to Snack Stand

Please consider helping in one way or another… The snack stand benefits the Instrumental Music Program, and the visiting school really enjoy the snacks (really, really enjoy the snacks!).

If you have questions, please contact Cecilia Cheng.
