Winter Retreat

It’s time to start thinking about the Winter Retreat! The dates will be after school on Friday, January 24th through Sunday afternoon, January 26th.

There will be lots of fun in the mountains, practice of upcoming Festival music, have special coaching sessions, lots of good food and snacks, and super fun times with your friends.

The cost is $325 per student. If you haven’t already paid, now is the time. Checks should be made out to “LCHS MPA,” and put in the black box in the Band Room.

If any parents would like to volunteer to chaperone, please contact Yvonne Lim.
