Marching Band Practice Schedule – This week we are practicing Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 3:30-6:00. As always, go to www.lamarmusic.org/calendar for practice schedules and events. This week, during lunch, the band room will be tutoring and study hall only.
Jazz – All-Region fees are due. Turn in $13 to Mr. Carlton or Mr. Lang. Students in Jazz 1 need to be working hard on their all region jazz audition music. The audition is Sept 17th at Southwest HS in Fort Worth.
Rides to Practice – The booster club and band student council are working together to help students find a ride to practices. If you have questions, contact the booster club parents at firstname.lastname@example.org

SAT test days – SAT tests conflict with our first two marching contests this fall. We encourage students to sign up for the December test date.
Marching Contest Dates – All marching band performances are on the band calendar. Exact times will not be available until about two weeks before each marching contest date. We will give a best estimate about 3 weeks ahead of time. Usually, marching contests are a FULL day event.
