Board Meeting Recognition

Posted on March 31, 2015 at 12:35 AM

The school board would like to recognize all band students who participated in Solo and Ensemble contest (LHS and LMS) and/or an honor band (LHS or LMS) this school year. We are asking that your child attend the April board meeting held on Tuesday, April 21st at 7:00 PM in room 311 at LHS. (311 is in the front of LHS right at the entrance closest to LES.)

Please wear your London band shirt (LMS) or polo (LHS) with black pants/skirt for the meeting. We will be taking pictures and they will hopefully be in the Madison Press along with an article about the events. You should plan to arrive at LHS by 6:45-6:50 PM and we should be done by 7:30 PM. You are welcome to stay for the meeting as well or plan to pick your child up around 7:30 PM. I think it will be wonderful to see how many students are involved in activities outside of the band class and for the board and community to see this, too. I sincerely hope you can all attend.
