July 5 Announcements

PARADE – The directors are very proud of the band’s performance yesterday! It was hot but thanks to our amazing booster club and parent volunteers, the kids stayed hydrated and as cool as possible. Thanks to Mr. Brawner for a bunch of great photos posted on the website https://lamarmusic.org/2015-07-04-july-4th-parade/

AISD TV has a video of the parade posted on their website https://youtu.be/_X1322lErLs?list=PL68D5D266D6C17F43 Lamar is about 1:29:00

MARCH 4 MUSIC – We started a new fundraiser last Wednesday. The March4Music March-A-Thon. Students were given an instruction sheet on how to set up their own donation page. Students are asking for donations per lap. Students will march 50 laps on August 15th. The students are also ask to bring 30 addresses to this Tuesday’s music rehearsal at 6:00pm. The March4Music staff will send very nice donation letters to these address for us. This donation style fundraiser promises to be a very profitable endeavor, but only if students participate fully. To see the default Lamar band donation page, and to learn more, go to  https://march4music.org/lamar I have also attached the student instruction sheet to this email.

REMIND – Remind is the text service we use to communicate information via mass text. There is an app available if you would like that instead of a text or email.
