End of the School Year – Whew! We managed to get moved out of the band room last Friday. Thank you students for your help. Phase 1 was getting out of the main band room, phase 2 is getting everything we need from LHS to Nichols JH next week once school is out. The last two days of class will be catching the last couple of auditions and studying for other finals.
Uniforms & Instruments – All school owned uniforms and instruments must be checked in before Friday afternoon. The tuxes and dresses must be turned in clean. The instruments will be checked and then rechecked to any students continuing in band next fall.
Concert Recordings – The concert recordings will be distributed Thursday and Friday. If you don’t receive it by then, please email me so I can get you a recording. If I lost an order slip during the band room move, I apologize and will get you your recording asap.
Graduation Orchestra – Students selected for the graduation full orchestra will rehearse 1:30-3:00pm tomorrow afternoon in the orchestra room. Mr. Walton will have music at that time.
Letter Jackets – Mr. Manto with MECA Jackets was excited to take some many orders for letter jackets last week. He will be back out in August to take orders for the fall semester. To order online, just go to his website. https://mecajackets.com/shop-patches?olsPage=products%2Farlington-lamar-band-crest
