Happy 1st Week of School Band Families!

So excited for the official first day of 2017-2018 school year for our LHHS Wildcat Band kids!  Just wanted to touch base about some important things to know for the first weekRemember that the lhabc.org calendar and Mr. Chavis’ dates and times are the ones to always follow.

1.    Band practice starts Monday, August 21st.  Practice is every morning Monday – Friday at 6:45AM unless the calendar or your band director states otherwise. The kids will start at 6:45AM, so they need to be there at 6:30AM to get ready to play.

2.    What do they need to wear for AM band practice?  Clothes like they wore during Summer Band with supportive shoes.  They need to bring something to change into after practice.  They may also want to bring toiletries to get freshened up after practice.

3.    SLEEP, SLEEP, SLEEP! Help your band kid get enough sleep by reminding them to get to bed early.  They have a LONG school day with early band practice, especially Fridays.

4.    It is helpful to pack up items needed the night before and to lay out clothing choice as well.
