Mr. Stone’s Thought of the Week…

Happy Labor Day! Hope you all enjoyed your day off! It’s a busy week this week for all groups as we dig deeper into our learning routines and music.

The Band and Color Guard have two performances this week. A parade at the L. A. County Fair on Wednesday and our first Friday Home Game. Come see both! Wednesday, the parade begins at 5pm and Friday, the football game begins at 7pm. It’s also 7/8 Night and a huge tailgate is happening pre-game, so it will be an amazingly fun and exciting night. Half time is game time in the band and color guard world, so come see the progress we’ve been making on our show, Synesthesia: The Color of Sound. You won’t be disappointed.

Have a great week and see you all at the shows!

Mr. Stone’s Thought of the Week…

The first full week done! Whew! That first week is always tough and stressful as we all get settled into schedules and new routines. I hope you all are scheduling in downtime as that is so valuable in all of our hectic schedules. My house went to Disneyland on Friday and had a wonderful time together flying the Millennium Falcon! It was truly relaxing!

Have a great week and don’t stress… It’s only week two.

Mr. Stone’s Thought of the Week…

I am looking forward to our first full week. It’s an action-packed week of informative meetings, rehearsals, and getting into the groove of school. I’m looking forward to seeing you all Monday night in the band room. The construction is still incomplete, but you’ll definitely see the direction and vision of the improvements. It’s going to be a great space to work in. Have a great week and keep smiling!

What a crazy two weeks! The Marching Spartans have been working long hours and are off to an amazing start!

The preview show last Friday was a huge success and gave a taste of this year’s show. It’s going to be one of best. Come to the football games and see how the show is developing.

The Band Room is almost finished. The big reveal is this week and we can finally move back in! Looking forward to see the final look of the new remodel.

Enjoy your last few days of summer and looking forward to our first day of school this Thursday! Have fun and see you soon!

Mr. Stone’s Thought of the Week…

Summer has been awesome! As the end of summer draws near, I’m equally excited for the new school year. The season is already off to a wonderful start with music in students’ hands, leadership working hard to prepare for workshops and band camp, crazy cool props and stages being built for the show, and we already have drill for the first movement. It’s going to be a good year!

I love that our show takes an army to put together the final product. Each part is as important as the next as they all work to the same goal of making a great show for the kids to perform and show their talents. It’s amazing to see how our community comes together to support and set-up our students to be great! Thank you all for your help and support. Looking forward to showing you all the first glimpse of this year’s show on Friday, August 9th!

Mr. Stone’s Thought of the Week…

Congratulations to our Seniors! I am so proud of each of you and am thankful to be a part of your high school memories. Good luck moving forward, but do come back and visit. We miss you! Senior parents, that goes for all of you as well.

As we come to the end of the year, it’s always an awesome time of much anticipated relaxation time and an almost instant start to the planning and preparation for next fall. I can’t wait to get ready for all the fun next year. Marching season will begin on June 10th at 8am with mini-camp, and we are beginning the registering process for our amazing New York trip. It’s going to be a great summer of anticipating a great year. Thank you all for your support and time this year. Enjoy your summer time off and see you in the fall.

Mr. Stone’s Thought of the Week…

We’re coming to a close and I’m looking forward to the final weeks of the year and then a bit of time off for fun and relaxation.

Awards Night is always a wonderful night of recognizing the best qualities in our students.

Come see the Jazz Band Sunday as we play for a huge gathering of folks for a fantastic community event. Fireworks after the last song!

Thank you all for your support and work in these final weeks and beyond. See you this week!

Mr. Stone’s Thought of the Week…

Happy Mother’s Day to all! I know I fully appreciate what my Mom has and does for me and what my wife, Dawn, does for our kids. Being a mom is truly the most amazingly, frustratingly awesome job! I hope you all had a great day.

Club LC was a blast! My favorite gig of the year and this one blew the roof off LCPC Friday night. Congratulations to the Jazz Band for playing 40 tunes in one night and to the amazing singers that joined us along the way.

Come Tuesday night and see our end of the year Instrumental Pops Concert. Always a fun evening! Looking forward to seeing you there.

Mr. Stone’s Thought of the Week…

Thank you all for coming out to another amazing Concerto Concert and to those I saw at Mamma Mia! the previous weekend. Also, thank you to all involved in both productions as it has been a lot of hours of rehearsals and practice to showcase how talented our LC musicians truly are.

Club LC is this Friday and it’s a must-see event in the Instrumental Music Program. I’m a little biased, but it’s probably my favorite event of the year, and one of the most tiring. Three solid hours of the Jazz Band performing with many fantastic vocalists coming to join us. Come see it this Friday.
