Parents – Join One of the Band Crews

 

It’s never too late to start finding your niche and meet many new lifelong friends as your child makes their journey through band.  Regardless of whether you are able to volunteer an hour a week or hours a day, it is the combined parent volunteer contributions that make a successful band program.

Here is what you can do this summer to find ways to support and participate in your child’s band experience.

1.       Join the Lafayette Band Association. All volunteers must be members of the LBA.

2.       Verify that you are an approved volunteer with the Fayette County School System. Click on this link

3.       Volunteer at BINGO as many Tuesdays and Thursdays as you can spare this summer while your schedule is not so hectic. This is the best way to meet and get to know other band parents while also supporting the band in one of its most profitable fundraisers.

4.       Watch the e-News this summer for crew profiles to learn more about each crew. 

5.       Watch for a crew recruiting meeting this summer. This will give you an opportunity to meet and speak with all the crew leaders to determine which crew fits you best.

In the meantime, if you have a burning crew question, feel free to reach out to the following crew leaders for answers to your specific questions.

Chaperones: Mike Booth (mikeboothgm@gmail.com)
Field Crew: Matt King (matt@bleedsblue.com)
Uniform Crew: Amy King (amy@bleedsblue.com)
Food Crew: Jane and Jim DeRossett (fullpantry@hotmail.com)
Band Store: Stacey Haymes (haymes@twc.com)
Media Crew: Michelle Dunlap (micklepickle58@gmail.com) or Dwayne Imes (dwimes@icloud.com)

 

PTSA Fundraiser for the Courtyard

 

Lafayette PTSA is working to spruce up the courtyard, located outside of Lafayette Café. We are asking for your help with this project.  Currently the courtyard has 3, dilapidated picnic tables. It is rarely used and rather uninviting. PTSA wishes to purchase several new industrial, metal picnic tables that will not only improve the look, but the function of the courtyard as well. Once the tables are installed, the area will lend itself as an outdoor classroom/study area as well as an outdoor dining area. We are also hoping to raise enough funds to donate $500 to the art department so that supplies may be purchased for student generated art projects to display around the courtyard.

Lafayette PTSA has not held a fundraiser for several years. Instead, operating on a tight budget, with income generated from membership fees and selling vinyl decals. We have set up a GoFundMe page to generate funds for this project and we hope that your family will make a donation. Any amount is greatly appreciated! Amazingly those $1, $5, $20 donations quickly add up to make for a sizable gift.

Please check out our GoFundMe page and consider making a donation today!

As always, please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you for your continued support of Lafayette PTSA!

Kindly,
Paige W. Kikuchi
LHS PTSA President
