Uniform Fitting and Band Fee Collection During Book Pick-Up
Remember to come to the Orchestra Room (85) during Book Pick-Up hours to get fitted for your Concert Tuxedo or Gown, and NEW BAND JACKET! Boys who need tuxedo shirts, bow ties, orcummerbunds may order them at this time--please bring a check or cash ($25 for all three items). All band students should also be prepared to pay the $65 MARCHING BAND FEE which covers meals for Marching Band events, jackets and T-shirts. Checks can be made out to LFHS.

Important Uniform Information
All band members must be in uniform for performances! We provide T-shirts and Jackets for Marching Band. You must provide your own black, full length, chino-style pants, black socks, and a pair of black sneakers/walking shoes (all black--no stripes or swooshes). I recommend looking online at Target or Old Navy for basic inexpensive pants. You can try Payless Shoes for an inexpensive pair of plain black sneakers. Remember, we're going for uniformity here, not fashion--don't call attention to yourself by being the one person not in uniform! For formal concerts, you'll need a pair of black dress shoes (but you have until November to find them)! Back to Band Rehearsals (FOR ALL BAND STUDENTS). All rehearsals will begin in the Band Room (87). Drop-off/parking is in the back lot. Dress
comfortably for the weather and wear sneakers for marching rehearsals. Dinner will be provided Tuesday night (beef/veggie burgers, hot dogs, and more)!
