Help needed!

Hello to all you dedicated band familes!

Here are a few ways that you can support your band students and the LHS band program this week:

  • Do you have some walkie-talkies that we could use during the CBA 5A fundraiser next week? If you do, please label them with your name and drop them off with Mr. Emmons in the band room. We need them before next Wednesday (Oct 14).
  • Our most important competition to date is on Tuesday, October 13th (Regional Competition for 4A bands), and we need about 15-20 more volunteers to sign up. Please enable your students have their best performance by signing up to help:
Thank you for all you do to make the LHS 'Lion Pride Marching Band" a memorable experience for your students!

Band Update (10/6/15) & Note from Mr. Emmons

Thanks and Appreciation for all of the amazing work that our Band Parents have done over these past several weeks. It was amazing to have all of the help and assistance with the Grand Junction trip from loading to unloading for rehearsals to loading again to feeding everyone multiple times to chaperoning to supervising to assisting with performance to cheering and supporting each student on that trip. The parents made the Pomona Festival look easy for both performances throughout a very long day and took care of everything so amazingly well with inclement weather rolling in. It is so comforting as a Director to know that our students are being taken care of so well by our band parents.  Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!  ~ Don Emmons

-Help!!! The CBA Regional 5A Marching Band Event is only 9 days away on Thursday, Oct.15th and we still need many more volunteers! There is no school for LPS students that day and many of the band students will also be working at this event. Please sign up here to volunteer:

-The Home Football Game on Friday, October 16this a Pep Band Only game (students perform in the stands and no half-time show on the field). Since there is no school in LPS that day, many of our students will not be here due to college visits, mini-vacations and such. Mr. Emmons will have a signup for all students that wish to participate in the Pep Band for this game. The only parent volunteers needed will be to set up stadium seating.
