  • Missing a Drawstring Bag?
  • Disney Cost Reduction/Mandatory Meeting
  • Important Upcoming Dates - LGPE Times!

Last Friday (1/28), many of you should have received an email indicating that there was a balance due on your student's account. There were only a small number of families who acted on this email. 

Since band is not funded by the county, the LBBA is the only entity who financially supports the band. Our students rely on the LBBA (yes, each parent is part of the LBBA!) and our dollars to create life changing experiences. Fundraisers are a part of the funding, but it's not enough. As a result, fees for marching, concert, winterguard, etc. are vital to the program. 

We know times are challenging for some and extra time may be needed to pay. That's completely ok - we just need to hear from you. If you need to work out a payment plan, please don't hesitate to reach out. You can send an email to presidents@lbba.org. Any information shared is completely confidential. 

Eyes With Pride,
Kristin Hawkins & Lisa Kubes
LBBA Co-Presidents
 
Marching Band Already? Early Bird Discount!
Time to start thinking about 2022 Fall Marching Band and Colorguard! Registration will begin in April. Fees for 2022 have not yet been determined, but an announcement will be made in the coming weeks. 
  • New Registration Date! To secure a spot in the 2022 Fall Marching Band and Colorguard, registration and non-refundable deposit of $150 must received by May 1st.
  • Early Bird Discount! Register and pay marching band fees in full by May 1st and receive 10% off! 
If your student was not a member of the marching band in 2021, but considering it for 2022, have them attend Spring Fling this April. It is designed for students to get an idea of what marching band is like so they can make a decision prior to the May 1st deadline. 

This May 1st registration deadline will finalize our numbers earlier so show design can begin and be completed by the start of marching band season in July. 

Spread the Word! February 10th @ 6pm in the Concert Hall is the first of two 8th Grade Parent Meetings. Please help us recruit for the 2022 Marching Band and Colorguard! 
      
 
Nominating Committee Announcement
It's that time of year when a Nominating Committee is appointed by the LBBA Co-Presidents for the purpose of nominating a slate of executive officers for the following school year. Our Nominating Committee consists of Sandy Pittman (chairperson), Heidi Levy, Blair Leone and Kerri Irwin. Thank you all for serving!

Executive Positions Open: Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer (Accounts Payable).

Interested? Would like to nominate someone? Please email presidents@lbba.org and we will pass the name along to the Nominating Committee. Names must be received by February 4th. If you need a description of each role, please email presidents@lbba.org.

Committee Chairperson Vacancies - please consider serving in one of these roles next school year. These positions serve on the Board (not Exec Board) and do not go through the Nominating Committee process. Many of these roles have someone continuing next year, we just need additional parents to serve: 
  • Hospitality
  • Discount Cards/Restaurants Nights 
  • Webmaster 
  • Senior Bricks/Trojan Heads
  • Ways and Means Chair - very important! 
  • Corporate Sponsors/Sponsor Board - very much needed!
  • Recycling
  • Social Media
  • Videography
 
Missing a Drawstring Bag?
Our Spiritwear Committee has three drawstring bags that were ordered, but recipient information is missing. If you placed an order, but did not receive a bag, please email presidents@lbba.org and we will pass your name along to our Spiritwear Committee. 
 
Disney Cost Reduction/Mandatory Trip Meeting
The cost of the student package has increased from $988 to $1168, a difference of $180. The increase was due to the Cobb County School mandate of 2 students per room ($140) and a recent transportation cost increase of $40. 

Soon you will see a decrease of $40 for your student's Disney trip in their Super Holiday account. This is the result of earnings from our Fall car wash and social media calendar fundraiser. In addition, the LBBA is contributing the remaining amount so the transportation increase can be covered in full for each student. 

Mark your calendars for Wednesday, March 9th @ 7pm. Mandatory Disney Trip Meeting. More details will be communicated as we get closer to the date.
