Uptempo Fundraising Kickoff – Emails due TOMORROW!

The Lake Highlands Area Band Club is excited to soon be kicking off our Up Tempo Fundraising campaign! This is a campaign that allows our students to receive donations from their family and friends. To assist our fundraising efforts, we are asking you to help your band/color guard student obtain permission for and gather 20 email addresses of his/her closest supporters.

Family and friends will then receive an email directing them to the student’s personal web page providing an easy way for them to donate.

It is important for ALL LHHS Band students to participate in our efforts. We actively fundraise in order to keep Band fees low for our families.

Up-Tempo Email Campaign Facts:

1. Safe and Protected – Up Tempo utilizes a safe and secure online donation system. All data is private and never redistributed. Personal information displayed is less detailed than what is given on a team online roster or your school’s annual yearbook, with no personal information other than name and optional picture/selfie. Your contacts are strictly private and protected, never sold or shared and will be deleted after the campaign.

2. Online donation system – Up Tempo is basically an online donation platform inviting potential donors via email and social media to visit the web page where they can easily donate and support your program. All supporters will receive an emailed receipt for their tax-deductible gift. Four reminder emails will be sent throughout the campaign with the option to unsubscribe.

We are asking you to assist your student by obtaining permission for and gathering 20 emails and phone numbers of people closest to him/her that may be potential donors. The phone numbers are in addition to the emails-they do not replace them.

You will need to bring these by Monday, October 19th and we will help set up his/her profile and host our “Live Event” on Wednesday, October 21st at 2:20 for the students to reach out to the people on their list.

COVID updates

Please make sure you are continuing to follow social-distancing protocols at all times! We have had more issues with students not following the 6-foot rule, especially when we are transitioning from outdoors to indoors and vice-versa.

We are seeing an increase campus-wide in quarantining and positive cases. Let’s all do our part!!

REMINDERS:

Early Morning arrival of Marching Band students on a Rehearsal day: All materials NOT needed for rehearsal must be placed in lockers (Brass/Color Guard), on your assigned spot in the Band Hall (Woodwinds) or spaced out in the entryway between the Band Hall and Percussion Room (Percussion).

All students will be released from morning rehearsals at 8:15am and will return to the Band Hall. Only F2F students will be allowed back in the building and locker rooms (1 at a time – please move quickly)

From there, students will be dismissed to Athletic Locker Rooms (H-Building: Boys and Girls PE Locker Rooms). If you are using the Athletic Locker Rooms, masks must be worn at all times unless showering. You will need to move quickly through the Locker Room as you’re getting ready for the day – no congregating! If you are not using the Athletic Locker Rooms, you may not walk through any part of the building unless you are heading to the Hub or Auditorium after 8:30am.

Once you are dressed for school, ONLY 1st period Band students will be allowed to remain in the Band Hall and must be on their assigned spot with all materials needed for class. Non 1st-period Band students will need to follow the School Entry plan and remain in the Auditorium or Hub after dressing.


Band Lockers are assigned and will be used only for band materials.

Percussion: On days with morning rehearsal, Percussion will continue to rehearse 8:20-9:20 for 1st period. On Mondays and Wednesdays, virtual students will be let out early in order to get home for the rest of their virtual school day.
