Band Information

Greetings 4th grade students and families! I am the band teacher at Stone Bank School and I am excited to meet with you and talk about the great opportunity of participating in our band program which starts in 5th grade. I am inviting everyone to attend an open house meeting where students will get the chance to try out different instruments and learn about what we do in 5th grade band next year. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 18th in the band room. I will be available from 2:30pm - 6:00pm so families can stop in whenever it is convenient for them. If you are unable to attend the open house, please contact me Jon Lovas, at and we can set up a different time that works better for your family.

4th of July Parade and Festival

Spring is just arriving, but the Lake Country Lions Club is already thinking summer and is planning for the 63rd annual 4th of July Parade and Festival! It will be here soon enough and the Club is looking for YOUR help!

Very simply, the Lake Country Lions Club (previously known as the Stone Bank Lions) has been coordinating the 4th of July Parade and Festival for many years, and each year its popularity and attendance grows. Of course, the Club is thankful that so many people get to enjoy the Parade and Festival, and wish for the enjoyment of this annual summer event to continue. However, it is becoming an event that more community involvement is REQUIRED if it is going to continue.

The Club requests that you, the community member who wishes for this tradition to continue on, to offer your time to volunteer to help produce the parade and festival. Only a few hours of your time on July 3rd and/or 4th will be needed.

Please attend the 4th of July parade and Festival meeting that will be held at Stone Bank School, May 21 to join in an open and candid conversation about how the 4th of July Parade and Festival can best be coordinated. We will be there with information and sign-up sheets from 10am until noon.

Of course the Lake Country Lions are always interested in growing our club memberships as well. Information about the Lions Club and membership possibilities will also be available.

As always, you are welcome to become a Fan and comment on the Club's Facebook page at To visit their website, go to Contact Don Casper at or call 262-719-9541 with any questions.

Thank you for any and all of your help!
