Announcements 5-1-13

This might be the busiest and most complex time of the school year. I will do my best to keep you informed via text, email and daily announcements at school. I encourage students to pay attention and get everything done on time or early.
Sincerely,
Mr. Lang

LETTER AWARD FORMS DUE — The letter award forms are due on Monday 5/6 by the end of the school day. A sample form is up in the band hall. Please ask a director for anything that needs to be clarified.

SENIORS — We need baby pictures! The band & orchestra councils are putting together the senior slide show. We need a baby, middle years and senior photo. They would also like to include the college in which the student plans to attend and the major they have chosen to start with. We MUST have this by next Wednesday at the latest. It would be easiest to scan the photo and email it to Brianna Collins briannaalindacollins@gmail.com If you don’t have a printer, bring it to Mr. Lang ASAP so he can scan it in.

BANQUET — The annual band & orchestra banquet is May 11th 7:00pm at the AISD Professional Development Center. It will be catered by Macaroni Grill. Tickets are $15 and MUST be purchased by next Wednesday at the latest. Parents are welcome to attend as we will give out scholarships and various distinguished awards.

SPRING TRIP — The trip was a huge success! We saw dolphins, jellyfish and a giant sand dragon! A big thank you to all the chaperones for their hard work keeping the kids safe! If you have photos of the trip that you would like to share, please get them to Mr. Lang ASAP! We might be able to get them in the banquet slideshow. If anybody is missing a large beach towel with black stripes on the edge, contact Mrs. Meyers.

TEXT PROGRAM — If you turned off the text system while we were gone, you can restart it by texting “LHS Band” to 90210. This is the busiest time of year so many reminders will be sent via text.
