Another Band Parent Meeting will be scheduled very soon to go over additional details as the competition season starts.

LHS Lion Pride Marching Band shirts for parent volunteers can be made at PROformance Apparel (6905 S Broadway Ste 181). Just bring in a black shirt and for a small fee they will add the Lion Pride Marching Band logo.

Band Photos of each individual student and a group photo were taken on August 5 by Lifetouch Photography. If you haven't already placed an order, you should be receiving a set of proofs in the next week or so that will contain an example of your student's portaits that were taken on their picture day as well as a series of codes that will allow you to view and order your student's portraits online.

Band Fees will be paid through the student LHS accounts this year. The bookkeeper will be inputting these fees into REVTrack once the class schedules are finalized. This is normally a couple weeks after the start of the school year.

Donations Needed:

2 EZ Up Canopy Tents (to borrow or as a donation) - Can be dropped off in Band room.

Monetary donations to buy concessions for our CBA event in October - Checks of any amount can be made out to LHS Marching Band CBA and given to Nikki Sheeran.

Please read re: tonight's rehearsal (8/16/16)

Important information regarding tonight's rehearsal!

Mr. Emmons was just informed that the LHS Athletic department is having a guest motivational speaker in the theater tonight from 5-6:30pm and would like all of our marching band students to come and hear him. This speaker is in town because he is speaking with the Colorado Rockies baseball team and regularly speaks with professional teams throughout the country.

If possible, please come to the theater at 5:00 pm. Band rehearsal will begin following this event at 6:45pm on the field tonight.  Thanks!
