Ms. Munday’s News & Notes

Congratulations on a year well done! I look back at all that you have accomplished and I am so proud of you all! Now, just get through finals and you will have a nice long summer vacation, filled with, I hope, fun, rest, and adventure. Oh — and some practice time 😉
I look forward to seeing most of you back next year, minus our seniors, for more music and fun. Have a fantastic summer!

Mr. Stone’s Thought of the Week…

It’s here! Last week. Last Days for Seniors… Summer… Well almost for our 2017-18 Marching Spartans.
I can’t say enough about the bitter sweetness of this week. Preparing for the next generation of all of our performing groups, watching our Seniors grow and move on to the next chapter of their lives and knowing that, for many, it will be the last time I see them. It’s the exciting part of growing up. It’s the goals set many years ago seen accomplished. It’s the friends you have all made along the way. Seniors, congrats on all that! Congrats on making an impact on this program and your school. Come back often. Visit even though every student you know on campus has graduated. Keep focused on your goals, be the amazing students of life that I know — and above all — be good to each other and those around you. Good luck and take care!

Concert Attire Returns and/or Donations

As the school year comes to a close, it’s time to return and or donate your student’s concert wear.
7/8 Orchestra
Boys should have their tuxedo jackets cleaned and return to Mr. Myers ASAP. Please write your student’s name on a piece of paper and attach it to the jacket.

9-12 Band and Orchestra
If your student is graduating this year and you would like to donate their concert wear to the program, please make sure it is cleaned. All donated concert wear may be hung on the rack in the band hallway prior to the last day of school. Future students thank you in advance for your donation!

Everything you need to know about the Fiesta Days Parade

When is the Parade?
The Parade is held on Memorial Day, Monday, May 29th. The Parade begins at 10:30am.

Where is the Parade?
The Parade is held on Foothill Blvd. It begins at the corner of Foothill and Cornishon (LCUSD District Office), and ends at the corner of Foothill and Gould (Round Table Pizza).

What should your student wear?

  • 7/8 students should wear their band t-shirts and dark shorts.
  • 9-12 students will wear their full marching uniform, but no shakos and no gloves.

Where should I drop off my student?

  • 7/8 students should be dropped off at the corner of Foothill and Cornishon at 10am. The students should go into the parking garage and look for the rest of the band. The 9-12 band will join the 7/8 students after the service in the park.
  • 9-12 students will meet at the LCE playground at 8:15am. Please enter from La Canada Blvd. They will warm-up and then proceed to the park for the Memorial Service.

What about instrument cases?
Your student should ONLY bring their instrument. All cases need to be left in the car. We will not return to the start of the parade.

Where should I pick up my student?
The parade ends at the corner of Foothill and Gould, right by Round Table Pizza. Please make arrangements with your student as to where to meet them. Someone will stay at Round Table until all students are picked up.
Students are dismissed when they finish the parade. We will not know where we are in the parade (beginning, middle, end) until Monday morning.
Usually it’s easiest if parents pick a spot to watch the parade towards the end of the parade route, making it easier for you to meet up with your student after they are finished.
How does my student get their instrument from school?
ALL students should take their instrument home with them on Friday afternoon. For those using school instruments, you may return them on Tuesday morning.
9-12 students should also take their marching uniform home on Friday afternoon. Please return them on Tuesday.
Anything else?
The traditional doughnuts and water bottles will be available for all 7/8 and 9-12 students. If you have another question, please let Sandy know. Did I forget anything?

Ms. Munday’s News & Notes…

Happy Mother’s Day to all you hard-working, deserving, Instrumental Music Moms! I hope that your children waited on you hand and foot! It’s almost summer break, but before that…

This Tuesday evening, May 16th at 7pm in the LCHS Auditorium, will be the Orchestra Music Awards Ceremony. Please come and relive the glories of the past year with awards and a slide show! It will be my privilege to sing your praises! The Band Awards begin at 8pm.

In the planning stages. This would be an opportunity to see everyone before school starts and to welcome our new members into the group with some activities, music, etc. We would then piggyback onto the BBQ later that day with the band.
