Concert Uniform Update:

UPDATED 9/27 – New date is Monday October 2

Mrs. Scott will be in the band room Monday 10/2 during band classes with bow ties and cummerbunds.  If you have the wrong color for the band you are currently in, there is no need to purchase a new set.  We can swap, provided you return in good (and clean) condition your bow tie and cummerbund from last year. If you are new to concert band on main campus or need to purchase a new set, please have exact change if possible, or a check made out to Lakota West Upbeat Club, or pre-pay through Charms.  The cost for both is $15. Bow ties are $5 and Cummerbunds are $10 if you do not need both.

Winds girls: Your dresses/pearls are in.  They can be picked up after school this week. Please remember that you are responsible for having them hemmed to floor length.  It is recommendedthat you do not wait until the last minute to take them to an alteration shop as that may incur extra charges.

Uniform Alterations are coming along.  We had several garments that needed to be altered and only a few volunteers sign up to help. Students will be notified when their uniform may be picked up.  Many are ready and can be picked up after school this week. Also, please take a moment and review the information located on the band website here. It has detailed information about what is required for each band and also serves as a dressing guide before the concert.  Our first concert is just around the corner: October 10th!
