Announcements 7/14/2017

Band Registration – We will hold our band registration and uniform fitting day on August 5th. All students will turn in forms (notary will be available on site), pay band fees and try on uniforms. The attached forms can be downloaded and printed to help expedite the process.

 

Show Music Download – I have uploaded parts 2 & 3 into Charms. All students have access to download. Do NOT share with non Lamar band students. Copyrights are pending. For educational use only.

 

Summer Uniform – During the hot summer months of band, we wear a “summer uniform” in place of the full marching band uniform that we wear most of the fall. The white polo is embroidered with our LB logo and is $20. The cap has Lamar Band embroidered and is $10. If you have questions email tcarlton@aisd.net and myself dlang@aisd.net.

Students must acquire on their own the rest of the summer uniform. The shorts will need to be khaki shorts (NOT cargo) that are about 9 inches long or more. Some examples are offered in the following links. The students should wear a solid brown or black belt. Shoes should be mostly white athletic shoes and socks should be short white socks.
