Mark Your Calendars - Lincoln-Way Marching Band Kick Off Meeting

We are excited to announce our season kick off meeting on April 13 in the Lincoln-Way Central Little Auditorium at 6:30pm.

At the meeting, we will share details about how to sign up for the Lincoln-Way Marching Band, give a preview of this year's competitive show and answer any questions you might have.

8th Graders should bring their Lincoln-Way ID number which can be found in the paperwork they received at the Freshman Orientation in February.

We will have parents on hand starting at about 6:00pm as well as after the meeting to help 8th grade families get signed up for our student management program called Charms. If any returning families need help with Charms, please stop by the computer tables and we can help you out as well.

We would also like to get as many student possible measured for the competitive uniform on Thursday, April 13. If possible, please plan to arrive a bit early or stay a little after the meeting to get measured.

We can't wait to see you there!
