SPRING BREAK – I sincerely hope that everyone is enjoying this amazing weather during the beginning of our spring break. I know that the Lamar band students and directors all need a little time to decompress. We have a mad rush to end of the school year once we return. Before the break, I told all the students to find time to practice their concert music at least 3 times during the break. We don’t want to come back and have to start over on our preparation for UIL. I too will be balancing fun and relaxation with study and practice. As I told the students on Friday, have fun, be safe and don’t do anything stupid!
WINTERGUARD – Congrats to the winterguard on fantastic performances this past weekend. On Friday they competed at the NTCA competition in Sachse HS. The JV guard placed 3rd of 10 in the regional A class and Varsity placed 1st in National A class! Very impressive evening! On Saturday, the Varsity guard performed at the WGI SW Championship in Denton. They placed 4th in their round.
The JV guard performs this Saturday at Marcus HS for the NTCA regional A championship. Lamar Blue performs at Marcus HS at 12:07pm.
SPRING TRIP – The spring trip final meeting is March 24th at 7:00pm. All students that are going to NYC must attend with a parent/guardian.
