Newsletter 7/31/17

Band Camp Wrap Up:

  • A Special Thanks to the Band Camp Committee who worked tirelessly to make this all happen!
  • A HUGE thank you to all the volunteers who covered so many shifts; feeding, fitting, tending and generally taking care of our 180 marchers. Their efforts totaled an astonishing 900+ volunteer hours over the course of band camp!
  • NOTE: MANY volunteer positions were unfilled during band camp. The Marching Band season requires everyone to step up and help, and there are MANY ways to do that. Please contact a committee chair person to see where you can help

Rehearsals and Performances:

  • Our school district has a program that provides "Supper" to any students who request it for any after school activities. "Supper" consists of a protein, grain, veggie and fruit option. We are willing to organize this for any student who contacts Sue Felli by Tuesday, to order for the following week. Suppers will be available starting next week (August 7). We anticipate that many students will want to have an extra snack before starting marching band practice.
    • Contact Sue Felli at suzannefelli or 317-694-7674 to sign your student up for this meal program.
    • This year, students will pick up their supper directly from the cafeteria at their home school, it will not be brought to the band hallway.

Shuttle Busses & Pick Up:

  • The after school shuttle bus for LN students will leave from LN door 16 at 4pm for all Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday rehearsals. Parents will always pick up from LC at the end of rehearsal – there is no return shuttle to LN. (If rehearsals are at LN, the shuttle will run from LC to LN, leaving from door 11, and students will be picked up from LN after rehearsal.)
    • Please note: The Thursday and Friday shuttle this week will be late! It is the first few days of school and the shuttle has to complete a regular route before returning to take our MPLT students.
  • On Thursdays, students have the option of riding their regular bus home and meeting back at LC at 6:15PM in time for the 6:30PM rehearsal, or taking the shuttle directly to LC and waiting in a supervised room for the rehearsal. Meals are the student’s responsibility.
  • Please keep our students safe! When picking up your students after rehearsals, please pull into a designated parking spot before leaving your vehicle. Do not park in the traffic lanes or block traffic.
  • LN Color Guard members are encouraged to be dropped off at LC for the G1 guard class. There is a shuttle bus to LN after class. Alternately, they can ride the normal shuttle from LN to LC which leaves from LN door 4 at the start of the school day.
  • Information about Activity Busses will come soon.

Student Account Payments:

  • Please keep up to date on your payment plans!
