end of season wrap up

Hello Band families,  

Congratulations to your students on a great season!

The awesome staff works tirelessly to support our students, and every year we show our appreciation with thank-you gifts from all of our families.  We are collecting money to purchase Visa gift cards that will be presented to Don Emmons (Director), Jess Quintana (Drumline Instructor), Julia Bransgrove (Assistant Band Director), Whitnea McDonnell (Colorguard Instructor), Abigail Thomas (Drumline/Pit Instructor), Jeremy Oaster (Brass and Woodwinds Staff), Quan Le (Percussion Tech), and Joe Encinias (Percussion Tech) at the end-of-season banquet.  We also thank Jim Farrell for his help with drills.  We ask that all families contribute to these gifts, in whatever amounts they feel comfortable.  

Nancy Egelhoff will be collecting funds and purchasing the gift cards.  Your contributions in the form of cash or check (made payable to Nancy Egelhoff) may be:

(1) given to Thomas (11th grade, percussion) at school; or
(2) mailed (checks only, please) to 3723 South Newport Way, Denver, CO  80237.

Updated schedule for FRIDAY, OCTOBER 27

Hi Band Families!

Because of inclement weather on Friday morning, the CBA has decided to postpone the entire event by two hours.  Our original performance time was 3:45.  We will now be performing at 5:45.  Announcements for semi finals will take place at 7:15.  It will be a long and cold day.  Please have your kids dress accordingly!!  We will be going for pizza after the announcement.

Truck loading will be at 10:45 at Littleton 

Parent volunteers for the performance please be at the Air Force Academy by 3:30 to help. If you would like to have lunch arrive by 2:30. Please consider that there may be delays to get in due to Air Force Security checks.  See the attached map. Park in spectator parking. The sign up genius times have been adjusted. Please verify your sign up. http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0a4fa4a92ca57-20174 

VERY IMPORTANT!!! Spectator and Bus Entrance into the Air Force Academy: all buses (charter, school district), private cars, mini-vans carrying spectators, etc. will enter the Academy ground via the North Entrance (Exit 156 off of I 25). Drivers must produce a valid driver’s license, proof of insurance and vehicle registration.

From the food team:

Due to the two hour delay for this Friday's competition, we will be feeding the kids at the event instead of at the school as we had planned.  The kids will need to eat their own lunch at the regular time at school (10:30).  Buses will load at 11:45.  We will feed them a big meal at Airforce Academy between 2:00-2:30.  They perform at 5:45  and then wait for the results to see if they make semi finals.  It will be a long day.  Please send your child with water, snacks and money for the concession stand (think hot chocolate!) and for pizza on the way home.  Thanks! 

Trombone, Tuba, Bari and Trumpet families please have all your food donations to the marked "Food Donation Box" (black box/green lid) in the corner of the uniform room NO LATER THAN NOON ON THURSDAY OCTOBER 26TH We have to have all the food for transport on Thursday.  Thanks for your help.  Here is the signup genius once again http://www.signupgenius.com/index.cfm?go=w.ProcessCreate1

We have a date for the End of Season Dinner!!!! We will have it on Friday November 17th in the school cafeteria. This year is a Potluck Dinner, and your whole family is invited!  We will be sending out two sign up geniuses.  The first one will be to see who is able to attend to get a count for the dinner. The second one will be a sign up for food we are asking for for the banquet.  Just sign up for what you would like to bring!  Thanks for your patience :)

Good Luck to our fabulous marching band this weekend!! Please call us with any questions

Details for Air Force Academy
Air Force Academy Stadium Map, Falcon Stadium, Schedule, Ticket prices
Parents need to be aware that there is a Security Check to get on the grounds of the Air Force Academy. It will take longer then many people expect or plan for. Also, there is a separate parking area that is a fair distance from where the buses and truck will be parking.

A note from "the food moms" Becky and Martha
Trumpet, Trombone, Tuba and Bari families--Here is your sign up genius for the quarterfinals meal at the Airforce Academy. If you received the hard copy please read this again because times, venue and food have all changed!!  Thanks so much for your help!!
http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c094ca5ac2fab9-cbastate.  You can also find this information on the Littleton facebook page and we will be sending it to your email address as well!

We will be having the kids pack a lunch that we provide and take it on the bus with them to the competition.  This is due to the long distance from the bus area to the food area at the venue and also because of possible long waits through security. We will try to feed a heavy snack before they perform at 3:45 however it all depends on how long it takes to get through security.  It will be a long day for them so PLEASE have your child bring a water bottle, snacks and money they can use at the venue!!  If your child has a special need diet, please send snacks and proteins that they can eat in addition to the food we provide.  Thanks for your help!!

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!

State Photos order forms
You can Pre-order photos from the State Band Competition. Please see the documents regarding orders here: State photos info State photos form

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.
