First Time Marchers Camp


The First Time Marchers Camp is for current 8th graders or students marching with Lafayette for the first time.

Monday, April 10 – Thursday, April 13, 2017 from 6:30pm to 8:00pm.

Wear tennis shoes and socks – you will be marching outside.  No sandals or flip/flops!

For new parents – LBA Board Members will be in the parking lot during the last 30 minutes of each rehearsal to welcome you and answer questions about the Lafayette Band.  This is a great time to return the payment agreement and medical forms.


LBA Parent Meeting on Monday, April 10


Please join us for the April LBA Parent Meeting at 7:00pm in the Lafayette Cafeteria (during the First Time Marchers Camp). This is the easiest way to be involved in your child’s band experience. Meet parents of your student’s peers and find out what’s going on now and what lies ahead for the Lafayette Band. LBA Parent meetings are open to current band families and families with incoming students this fall.  Discover how you can use your time and talents to get involved.
