MAY BOOSTER MEETING

May 15th @ 6pm

 

As a reminder, the General Booster Meeting originally scheduled for 5/11 has been moved to Monday 5/15. We moved the general meeting to this date to coincide with the Marching Band practice rehearsal.We need a general booster vote on next year's budget, so we are hoping that people will drop their students off for practice and stay for the meeting (which will be in the large cafeteria).  

 

Booster Buddies

 

Calling all Parents!!!

We are looking for volunteers to be “Booster Buddies". A Booster Buddy is a veteran parent that will be teamed up with a new parent in their section to help answer any questions that they may have. Please contact lhsmbbpr@gmail.com if you have questions or would like to participate.

 

GUARD MINI-CAMPS – save the dates

 

If you are going into 8th grade or higher you can attend these 4 mini-camps for Guard:

  

May 17- 5:45-8:30pm 

Mr. Nick will be coming in to do a dance class

 

June 5th -5:45-8:30pm

(You will be able to sign equipment back out this night.) 

 

June 15- 5:45-8:30pm

 

Middle School Aged Marching Band Members:

 

The attached handout will be circulating around the three middle schools this week! In the event some of our 7th and 8th grades miss it, I have attached a copy!

 

For those students who participate in band and participated in the LHS Marching Band or Winter Guard, those middle school students are allowed to choose whether to spin with the Guard or play their instrument. The decision needs to be communicated to their band teacher by the May 15th rehearsal. Those students are still expected to come to the after school Tuesday rehearsals with the rest of the Middle School band, but they are allowed to spin. In band rehearsal when we're not outside, they are expected to play their instrument as it will help them learn the piece better! 

 

Please let me know if you have any questions or need further clarification!

Mrs. Anna Salem

In case you missed this the last 2 weeks!!

Wrapping up the 2016 season:

 

Participation in the Memorial Day Parade is mandatory for ALL 2016 Marching Band Members

 

Memorial Day Parade rehearsals will take place at LHS on following dates:
    Monday, May 15th 6-8:30pm (General Booster Meeting – budget vote)
    Monday, May 22nd 6-8:30p

    Monday, May 29th 8am report time (HS aged students only - this is a FULL uniformed performance)

The district's policy concerning Warriors Marching Band members who are in middle school, is that those students will march the parade as part of the LCSD MIDDLE SCHOOLS marching band. Those students will join the Warriors Marching Band at the Memorial Service (at the cemetery) and will finish the parade with the high schoolers. Both marching bands will conclude the parade with performances for one another at Johnson Park. The Warriors Marching Band will perform excerpts from their Fall 2016 show at that time for the middle school marching band members. As such, middle school Warriors Marching Band members are expected to attend the 15th and 22nd evening rehearsals to reacquaint themselves with the Fall 2016 music as well as the Star Spangled Banner (for the Memorial Service).

This parade was listed on the schedule that came with your membership packet a year ago as one of the MANDATORY dates which you agreed to by signing the Member/Parent Contract. This performance is important for several reasons:

#1 - it is our one "give back" to the Liverpool community for their support of the Warriors Marching Band programs.


#2 - it provides an opportunity for our students to realize that Memorial Day is much more than a parade through their participation in the memorial service at the cemetery (a civics lesson if you will - always looking for "teachable moments")


#3 - this is THE LARGEST opportunity to recruit for next year's marching band by having a "captive audience" at the Johnson Park performance.

This performance is the final requirement of the "season" and is expected for each student to fulfill that requirement as a member of this program. It is realized that many families take this weekend to travel for a variety of reasons and is simply ask that you adjust your plans to be back by 8am on that Monday. Thank you for your anticipated cooperation and compliance with this.

 

Marching Band Show Shoes - If your show shoes no longer fit and you will be needing a new pair, please consider donating.  The Uniform Committee will be accepting gently worn Band Shoes donations after the parade and after open house.  Please look for the return box at these events near the Uniform room.

Carrier Dome Concession Stand, Dates throughout the Fall and Winter Season

The Dome Stand is our biggest fundraisers and needs everyone's help to make this a success. This fundraiser puts $20,000 to the budget split between student accounts and general fund (this works out to be about $125 towards each member’s participation fee and also helps us to invest back into the program with Capital Expense purchases). ALL member’s fees are subsidized by this fundraiser.  EACH FAMILY IS ASKED TO WORK A MINIMUM OF 3 VOLUNTEER SLOTS, there are a variety of dates/times during football and basketball season to accommodate everyone's schedule.

 

We staff a concession stand at the Carrier Dome for all SU home football games and basketball games.  We are fortunate to have this stand, as there is a waiting list for these lucrative moneymakers.  In return, we receive 15.5% of the stand’s net profit per event.  We are responsible for preparing all the food that will be sold, fully staffing the stand during each scheduled event, and cleaning up afterwards.  This can be a lot of fun and beneficial for your student account. 

 

We have numerous ways you can sign up to work shifts at the Dome you can click the link in the Band Notes emails http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0b48a4a62da7f94-dome1

 

 visit our Website and click on the link "Dome Signup", sign up in the "Dome Book" that will be at practices and meetings, Send a email to the Dome Coordinators or to LHSMBBDOME@gmail.com.   

 

Workers earn $8/hour. For a typical football game workers earned around $56 and for basketball it’s around $40. This is a great way to meet other band parents and to really put a dent in that student account. Workers must be at least 16 years of age (this is a Dome rule, not ours) and family and friends can work towards your account.  

 

Band members are encouraged to work games that do not conflict with band, and guard members are encouraged to work times between fall and winter season performance days

Carrier Dome Concession Stand, Dates throughout the Fall and Winter Season

The Dome Stand is our biggest fundraisers and needs everyone's help to make this a success. This fundraiser puts $20,000 to the budget split between student accounts and general fund (this works out to be about $125 towards each member’s participation fee and also helps us to invest back into the program with Capital Expense purchases). ALL member’s fees are subsidized by this fundraiser.  EACH FAMILY IS ASKED TO WORK A MINIMUM OF 3 VOLUNTEER SLOTS, there are a variety of dates/times during football and basketball season to accommodate everyone's schedule.

 

We staff a concession stand at the Carrier Dome for all SU home football games and basketball games.  We are fortunate to have this stand, as there is a waiting list for these lucrative moneymakers.  In return, we receive 15.5% of the stand’s net profit per event.  We are responsible for preparing all the food that will be sold, fully staffing the stand during each scheduled event, and cleaning up afterwards.  This can be a lot of fun and beneficial for your student account. 

 

We have numerous ways you can sign up to work shifts at the Dome you can click the link in the Band Notes emails http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0b48a4a62da7f94-dome1

 

 visit our Website and click on the link "Dome Signup", sign up in the "Dome Book" that will be at practices and meetings, Send a email to the Dome Coordinators or to LHSMBBDOME@gmail.com.   

 

Workers earn $8/hour. For a typical football game workers earned around $56 and for basketball it’s around $40. This is a great way to meet other band parents and to really put a dent in that student account. Workers must be at least 16 years of age (this is a Dome rule, not ours) and family and friends can work towards your account.  

 

Band members are encouraged to work games that do not conflict with band, and guard members are encouraged to work times between fall and winter season performance days

Let them know that you wish your deposit refund to be applied against your student's account or you can have the monies applied to the general fund!

When bringing your bottles to MSK, please make sure you record the member's name legibly.  We want to make sure all accounts are credited properly.

 

All Seniors - Please note that you will be kept on the current list of e-mail recipients until graduation in June and therefore will continue to receive periodic e-mails concerning the Boosters during the Winter season.  At that point your information, along with those of your parents/guardians, will be transferred to our Alumni lists.

NYSFBC Championships Video Information

Dear NYSFBC Parents and Families,

We look forward to your attendance at the New York State Field Band Conference Championships on October 30 at the Carrier Dome.  Our students have been working hard for months and the championship show will be the culminating celebration when the entire state has the chance to be on display.  This is a memory we are sure you want to preserve!  In order to facilitate this, the New York State Field Band Conference has hired a top notch video production company, Box 5, to film and produce a video for you to purchase and preserve the memories for you and your child’s performance.  The permission to video tape and record the performance of music by hundreds of different composers has taken a great deal of legal work, time and expense.  We are REQUIRED BY LAW to ask you to please DO NOT record (audio or video) ANY performance of band at a NYSFBC show including championships.  Please understand that a decision to ignore this request jeopardizes and future relationship with the video company and ability for our students to perform their wonderful music!  If you would like to order a video, you may do so by following these links and directions:

Members are expected to return to the school on the bus after competitions.

Occasionally a member will need to leave a show with a parent.  The Directors require that a note is turned in on the Thursday before the show. This note should state who will be picking up the Member and the Member is responsible for letting the Directors/Head Chaperone know when their ride has arrived and that they are leaving.

 

IMPORTANT!  Uniforms reminders

 

Black Socks

Members must wear black socks with their uniforms.  The socks must be high enough that their legs are not exposed when lifted.

 

Band members

 

You are responsible for taking care of your uniform - treat it with respect

 

-there is to be no "rough play" while in uniform (this includes chasing other band members either inside or outside).  Do not drop your shako on the ground.

-uniforms are to be hung on the hanger

       -pant legs are to be pulled out and the pants folded neatly over the hanger;  creases should be matched up.  Nothing should be left in the pocket of the pants.

       -gauntlets should be folded over the pants which are ON the hanger

       -the jacket should be on the hanger and hooked at the top so it doesn't fall off

 - the only thing that should be in your uniform bag is your uniform (jacket, pants, gauntlets, gloves, berets)---ALL t-shirts and socks MUST BE TAKEN HOME and washed after every show.  Please do NOT leave them in the uniform bag

-please make sure you have all parts of your uniform before returning it to the closet-this includes gloves.  If you lose your gloves you will be given a pair of used(washed) gloves.

-Please remember to wear your show shirt under your jacket-it is part of your uniform (t-shirts are required-please do not wear tank tops)

-the only thing that belongs in your shako box is your shako-do not leave gloves in your shako box

-please take care of your shako-do not drop it on the ground or shove gauntlets etc. in them--also please do not pull hard on the chin straps.  We are experiencing a lot of breakage of the side button pins and the medallion pins.  This year shakos have been assigned by number.  The number is inside the shako and can be found on the tags on the uniform bag and shako box.

-There is no food or drink allowed in the uniform room.

-Finish eating before putting on your uniform on show days.  NO FOOD near you while you are dressing for a show.

-Limit after show snacks to those that will not stain your uniform.

Members must wear black socks with their uniforms.  The socks must be high enough that their legs are not exposed when lifted.

Events have been created for the upcoming fundraisers.  Make sure you invite your friends.

 

If you have already signed up for the concession stand and are in need of a parking pass, you need to see Wendy Solberg after practice Thursday evening.  This will be the last chance to get a parking pass in person.  After Thursday’s practice, alternative arrangements will need to be made to acquire a parking pass (text her at 436-6152 with a few days lead time).  She has passes for the entire season so it is best to plan ahead.

CARRIER DOME CONCESSION STAND

 

The Dome Stand is our biggest fundraisers and needs everyone's help to make this a success. This fundraiser puts $20,000 to the budget split between student accounts and general fund (this works out to be about $125 towards each members participation fee and also helps us to invest back into the program with Capital Expense purchases). ALL members fees are subsidized by this fundraiserEach family is asked to work a minimum of 3 volunteer slots, there are a variety of dates/times during football and basketball season to accommodate everyone's schedule.

 

Basketball season is now posted and has lots of openings that need to be filled. This is a great opportunity for getting a head start on Winter Program participation fees or even next season.

 

Stand Managers are needed for Basketball Season, if you are interested or need more information please contact a member of the Dome Committee. Stand Managers must be Approved Booster Members.

 

Please review Sign Up genius and sign up for available slots.

 

http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0b48a4a62da7f94-dome1

 

Please note 1 person can only sign up for 1 slot on an event, 17 workers are needed for each event when you sign up for both shifts we do not have the number of workers needed

 

We staff a concession stand at the Carrier Dome for all SU home football games and basketball games.  We are fortunate to have this stand, as there is a waiting list for these lucrative moneymakers.  In return, we receive 15.5% of the stand’s net profit per event.  We are responsible for preparing all the food that will be sold, fully staffing the stand during each scheduled event, and cleaning up afterwards.  This can be a lot of fun and beneficial for your student account.

 

Workers earn $8/hour. For a typical football game workers earned around $56 and for basketball it’s around $40. This is a great way to meet other band parents and to really put a dent in that student account. Workers must be at least 16 years of age (this is a Dome rule, not ours) and family and friends can work towards your account. 

 

Band members are encouraged to work games that do not conflict with band, and guard members are encouraged to work times between fall and winter season performance days
