2017 Host for CBA 5A Regional Marching Band Competition Tuesday, Oct. 17
Have you volunteered to help with our biggest fundraiser of the year? WE NEED YOU!!!! Please follow this link to sign up to help with this important fundraising event: 
http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0a4fa4a92ca57-201610  *Please note that most of the times have changed. We strongly encourage you to double check the times that you signed up for. Please view a letter from Nikki Sheeran here detailing how your donation of any size can help raise over $9000 in concession profit alone! 

A note from "the food moms" Becky and Martha
Great job to the kids for their amazing performance at Pomona last Saturday!! Here are a couple reminders for you all from the food team :)

We feed the kids one large meal and one moderate snack either before/after or between performances. If we place in evening finals, we do not serve another meal, so please send snacks and water/drinks with your children, or money to purchase food at the concession stand at the venue. We do this because we are not always sure we will place in finals.

Please remind your child to have a filled water bottle with them at all performances.

We are in the midst of planning the end of season dinner. This year is a Potluck or possibly a special dessert night. The date we are potentially looking at is Friday November 17th. We realize this is the Friday before Thanksgiving Break, so we wanted to let you know this was a possibility in advance for planning purposes.

We wanted to thank all of you for your donations and support this band season!! Your help and response has been amazing!!

If you ever have any questions, feel free to ask us! Becky (303-332-3571) and Martha (720-323-8441)

Share your Band Photos!
Nancy Eglehoff has set up a share site on Shutterfly for parents, staff, and students to view and share photos. You probably received an email inviting you to be “members” of the site, but all “visitors" and members will be able to view and add photos to the site, as well as download them to their computers or social media. It is set up as a “private” site and a password is required to access the site at the following link:
Site Name: Pride of Littleton -- LHS Marching Band 2017
Site URL: https://prideoflittletonmarchingband2017.shutterfly.com/
Site Password: Golhsband2017!

The goal is to include as many students as possible, and some of the photos I’ve uploaded are better than others, but hopefully there will be at least a few photos of every student on there by the end of the season. I’m sure some of the band parents are taking awesome photos!

Thanks for your help, and Go Band!

Band fees can be viewed

Finally, Band fees have been assessed to each student's Infinite Campus account.  We appreciate having these band fees paid by mid-November so that we can settle all our accounts regarding the Marching Band activity.

Thank you so much for your help, assistance and support.

Sincerely,

Don Emmons, Instrumental Music Director
Littleton High School

This week's schedule
This week (the week of October 2nd) we have an evening rehearsal on Tuesday, October 3rd from 6pm - 9pm at the Stadium with Mr. Jair Klarfeld (who wrote and arranged our music this year). This is our most important rehearsal of the season so far in preparation for next competition at the Pomona Invitational this coming Saturday.  

Up Next: Pomona Marching Festival
This Saturday, Oct 7 we are competing at the Pomona Marching Festival. Call time is at 9:00am at LHS; we plan on returning around 10:45pm. Here is the information sheet for Pomona
Please keep an eye out for a sign up genius on FACEBOOK Monday or Tuesday to sign up to help with field show and truck loading and unloading. For planning, truck loads at 10:30 am at LHS, field volunteers will need to be at the NAAC (Northern Area Athletic Complex) Stadium at 19500 West 64th Parkway in Arvada by 1:15pm. Please plan on staying through our expected finals performance.
Drumline, Tenor Sax and Bass Clarinet families will be providing the food for the band on Saturday. Please sign up here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c094ca5ac2fab9-legend if you can help out. Thank you families for keeping our kids nourished!

Finally, we need some help assembling the backdrop scrim panels for use on the field on Tuesday evening. If you are available to help us at Littleton H.S. on either Monday or Tuesday afternoon between 3 - 5:30pm, we would really appreciate your help and assistance.  We also have some small painting projects that need to be done as well.

This weeks schedule and information for Legacy + other updates

Monarch Marching Festival Recap
Dear LHS Band Parents,
Thank you so much for your all of your help at the Monarch Marching Band Invitational this past Saturday.  You Are The BEST!!!  I am so very impressed with your positive spirit, your helpful attitude and your wonderful efforts to assist the band, all through a rain-storm downpour!!!  I hope that you are dry and warm by the time you read this.  

Our students had a very strong first competition performance of the season.  We set our goals to focus on:  1. our Music & Sound;  2. our Musical & Vis Effect.  Out of the 13 bands that were able to perform before the cancelled the rest of the show performances, your "Pride of Littleton" Marching Band was ranked 2nd Overall in Music and 1st Overall in Effect.  We certainly met our goals for this performance and will continue work hard to meet our next goals and challenges of performance ahead.  Thank you for helping us have a very successful day.  

This week's schedule
For this coming week, we have 2 evening rehearsals scheduled for Monday, Sept. 25th and Friday, Sept. 29th from 6-9pm in the Stadium.  For the Monday evening rehearsal, I realize that Parent-Teacher Conferences have been scheduled.  If students are with you for a conference between 6 - 7:30pm, then please have them join us on the field after their conference time.  Otherwise, we plan to see all of our students on the field at 6pm on Monday and on Friday.  Please note, that the weather forecast is for cold weather on Monday evening, please have students bundle-up so that we can get some good work done on the field.

Next up--Legacy Marching Festival
Our next competition is this coming Saturday at the Legacy Marching Festival.  Please click on each for more information:  Information sheet, Maps, Directions and Schedule for this event.  

If you are able to come and assist the band for this coming Saturday, we would really appreciate your help and assistance.  Please Sign-up for this event on the Sign-up Genius so that we can keep track of the 30 volunteers that we need for this show.
