Ms. Munday’s News & Notes…

We are looking forward to a really fun week! This Friday, November 2nd, the orchestra will spend the whole day playing at the three elementary schools in the district. It’s always a good time for everyone – the elementary students love to hear some of their favorite songs played by older students, and the high school kids love playing them! We need a few parents to volunteer to spend the day with us. I encourage you to come! Please contact Yvonne Lim.

We are going to continue our tradition of the Halloween Breakfast! It will be Halloween morning during 0 period. See this post for the help we need.

These are good times for all – a needed break from working hard! Please come and join us!

Have a safe and frightfully good week!

The Habit Fundraiser – November 7th

The Habit Fundraiser

The Habit in Town Center

Wednesday, November 7th


The Boosters have set up a fundraiser at The Habit in the Town Center to benefit the Instrumental Music Program.

Please invite your friends and family!

Mr. Stone’s Thought of the Week…

Hard work and detailing is the name of the game for musicians. An easy looking performance is backed by hours of hard work as an ensemble and more hours as individuals. Details equal emotional reaction by an audience (and performer… it’s why we play as much as we can!) and details come through the constant focus and attention musicians put into their craft each and every rehearsal, practice session, or performance.

As we go through the year, from performance to performance, enjoy the fruits of these fine student musicians’ hard work and attention to details. Not only does it make amazing performances, it makes amazing students.

9-12 Orchestra Elementary Tour

The 9-12 Orchestra will tour all three elementary sites on Friday, November 2nd.

We are looking for several parents to ride the bus with the students. If you are interested, please contact Yvonne Lim.

We will depart LCHS at 7:30am and return at approximately 3pm. We will have lunch in Montrose. It’s a great day and it’s so fun to observe the high school students and the elementary students be excited about music!
