Lakota West Bands Update: August 10

A Communication of the Lakota West Upbeat Club

This communication covers:


Family Tailgate

The Upbeat Club is hosting a tailgate for all marching band families and alumni on Friday at 6pm for pizza at the Freshman Building.  We will have volunteer signup opportunities, and new fundraiser – thirty-one [1] kicking off and Spiritwear for sale!  As you would imagine – we could use a few hands to help serve pizza and drinks Friday evening. If you can help, please sign up here [2]. We would really appreciate the help!

We also need help selling Spiritwear during the Tailgate on Friday 8/11 from 5-7. Please email Michelle at spirit@lakotawestbands.org [3] if you can help.


Lakota Tag Day is Saturday 8/26!

Both Lakota West and Lakota East will participate in Lakota Tag Day!  All Lakota West marching and concert band members grades 9-12 will, in small groups, go door-to-door asking for donations from members of our community. Donations go toward the band’s uniform fund as well as the special projects fund – both significant recurring expenses. The efforts of our parents and all our band students on Tag Day is what paid for the fantastic uniforms each student was fitted for this week. Concert Band uniforms are also included in this effort. Please clear the morning of 8/26, you won’t believe what we can accomplish together! Signup for parent drivers coming soon.

We have moved to a new calendar, we think you’ll like the format better, and it is at a slightly better cost. It also functions better with our website. Go here to see the new format [4]. To subscribe to the calendar, see instructions her [5]e.
