Concert Uniform Collection - Important!
  • May 6th Concert - Students need to bring a change of clothes to the concert.  
  • Turn in concert tux jacket, pants and dress after the performance. 
  • All returning students will hang their concert clothes on a labeled hanger before dismissing.  
  • Any students not attending the concert should put their concert attire on the rack outside the uniform closet before May 6th.
  • There are 25 borrowed bowties that are missing.  This means half of all tux wearing students have multiple ties and there are none left to loan out.  Please make sure your student brings their bow tie and returns the one they borrowed.  
 
Sponsor Board - Local Companies You Do Business With
As mentioned in the previous Blast, our New Sponsor Board is COMPLETE and ready for MORE Sponsors! We need your HELP! Please ask local businesses you frequent if they would like to become a sponsor! Please contact presidents@lbba.org for more information. 
 
Painting, Bricks, Signup Genius, Middle School/Welcome
We know what you are thinking. What does this mean? Well, we need some help!
  • Painting and Bricks - we need a Chairperson(s) to oversee the Senior Trojan Heads and Bricks Committee! Sandy Pittman has done a fantastic job over the years and will be "graduating" this May. Low time commitment - Trojan Heads in the Fall and Brick installation in the spring! 
  • Signup Genius - do you know how to use Signup Genius? We need a Chairperson to head up our Volunteer Committee. Each time we have a event and need volunteers, you will be given the dates, times, number of people needed and you create the signup. Easy and you can do it from home! 
  • Middle School/Welcome Committee - we are looking for 2 people to do the following:
    • Organize volunteers to welcome rising 9th grade families during Spring Fling (we can help you identify parents to help) 
    • Organizing volunteers (1 per section) to serve as the go to person for each section during the Fall - welcome email/phone call at the start of band camp and periodically during the season when important news needs to be communicated. 
    • Help Co-Presidents on the morning of band camp with our new parent social. We did this last year and we had a great turnout. It was in the morning as parents were dropping off kids, very informal, we had a table setup outside the bandroom with coffee and donuts. We just mingled and answered questions.
    • And any ideas you have - run with it! 
All of these positions serve on the LBBA Board. If you would be willing to serve, please email presidents@lbba.org.
