LEHS Band Newsletter
Edition #1 (September 8-18, 2020)
A Note from Mr. Felice
If you have not gone through the Band Checklist, please do so ASAP. We are still collecting forms from our students. Also, many students still either owe LEISD for Band/Guard Equipment Usage Fees or the Little Elm Band Boosters for band fees/dues. Please make sure these are paid in full by October 1st. If additional time is needed, please send a note to Mr. Felice, so that we know what kind of payment plan would be best for you.
Wanting to keep our band parents well-informed, we will be having ZOOM Parent Meetings for all band students/parents next week. The ZOOM links are listed below under UPCOMING EVENTS. The schedule is as follows:
Tuesday (9/8) - Freshman at 6:30 pm / Sophomores at 7:30 pm
Thursday (9/10) - Juniors at 6:30 pm / Seniors at 7:30 pm
* If there is an issue with your scheduled time, please join us when you can. Since ZOOM has a limit on participants, the schedule shown above will allow everyone the ability to attend. We will be going over the plan for marching season / rehearsals, as well as elect new LEBB officers, etc...
I hope everyone is staying healthy and safe! We are looking forward to a GREAT year with our LOBO BAND!
