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. Lisa Young is chairing this program. Please contact her at youngs92@hotmail.com if you would like to participate.

 

FUNDRAISING:

 

The LHSMBB is a volunteer organization!  Volunteers are needed to chair events throughout the season.  Please contact  Annette Davie at a.davie@nsbconline.org if you would like to step up to chair, co-chair or shadow an event.

 

 

Current needs:

 

Car wash, need 1person

NEW Wine Tasting, need 1 person

Applebee's Pancake breakfast, need 1 person

If you're interested we also need people to learn the ropes by shadowing this year for coordinating next year.  Examples of these are...

Please consider helping our kids in this way.  Please contact Annette Davie at 430-8267 or a.davie@nsbconline.org to talk more about any of these opportunities.

  

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.

  

Participation in the Memorial Day Parade is mandatory for ALL 2015 Marching Band Members

 

Memorial Day Parade rehearsals will take place at LHS on following dates:
          Monday, May 16th 6-8:30pm (Parents - General Booster Meeting)
          Monday, May 23rd 6-8:30pm
          Monday, May 30th 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 2015 show at that time for the middle school marching band members. As such, middle school Warriors Marching Band members are expected to attend the 16th and 23rd evening rehearsals to reacquaint themselves with the Fall 2015 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 Open House – Tuesday, June 7th.  Students are to report to the band room at 6pm. Veteran parents are strongly encouraged to attend. This is a great opportunity to meet incoming parents and share your Marching Band experiences with those who are considering participation! Parents will meet in the new Senior Cafeteria (Room 902/904) at 6pm. Refreshments will be served. Every member will receive a current Student Account Statement at Open House on June 7th so that you will know what the current balance/credit on the account is. Any current credits may be used toward your $125 deposit.

  

 

 Current Fundraisers

 

 

**Get a head start on fundraising for next season!**

 

 

DON’T FORGET!!!  You can also add to your student account by bringing your returnable bottles to MSK Bottles& Cans on Route 57.  

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.

Those parents who still have members participating will remain on the standard lists.

 

Thank you to Band Photographer Cindy Barrus, Band camp photos and photos throughout the season are posted on the Facebook site.
