News From the Band Room


Week #7

Hi Folks - Great win for the Raiders this past Friday at Ephrata. This week is going to be a busy one with a booster meeting Tuesday night at 6:30pm in the band room, a home game against Donegal Friday night and the Lebanon County Band Exhibition on Saturday night. Report time for this Friday is 5:30. Inspection is at 5:45pm and we will head over to the stadium at 6pm. Students may stay after school. Jazz Band will rehearse from 2:30-3:30pm.

Saturday the boosters will start setting up at 1pm for the exhibition. There are still a few spots to sign up for volunteering and baked goods. See the signup genius links below. The weather is looking good for Saturday, so we should have a big turnout. We will need a lot of help setting up and tearing down.

This is a reminder to use the sign-up genius LINK to volunteer to help with the exhibition. This is a big undertaking for the boosters as well as a huge fundraiser. We will need all the help we can get, even if it is only for an hour or two. You should have also received a form from the boosters to place an ad in the program. If you did not receive this form, please email Mr. Fair.

Also, we are still in need of some volunteers to bake cookies for the band to take with them to the away games as well as to give to the visiting bands who come to ELCO. Please use the following LINK to sign-up
