KEEPING PARENTS IN THE KNOW…
Welcome to the Parents Corner where you can find information about the Lake Norman High School Bands Program and our Band Boosters Organization. Whether considering our program for your child or if your child is already a band or guard member…this world-class bands program has a rich history of musical excellence and we are glad that you are here.
There are several ways you can provide support and encouragement for your child: attending performances, encouraging home practice, and providing private lessons. Assisting him or her in meeting responsibilities provides an incentive for your son or daughter to do well. In addition, it will improve the quality of the band program. The success of our band program is impossible without the tremendous support of the parents.
In order for you to do all of that, you will of course need to be informed. The band program makes use of a variety of technologies including this website, email, Facebook, Remind, etc. in order to make sure that parents, students, instructors, and other members of the LHHS Band Boosters are kept up to date with rehearsals, performances, fundraising, and other important events and information.
A list of all the ways you can stay informed is maintained on the Get Connected page of this website.
The following pages will provide an overview of the LHHS Band Program, an introduction to Faculty and Staff, information about the Performing Ensembles and Marching, and past shows and accomplishments.
Another important resource is the LNHS Band Program’s Calendar page. It contains not only dates and times but other information such as locations, maps, itineraries, and other information. Some of this information may not be available when the event is first added to the calendar but will be added as the event gets closer. Check it periodically as dates and details do change as we get updated information.
Important documents and forms including student downloads, a downloadable schedule, the Wild Cat Commitment Agreement, the LNHS Bands Handbook, Fees document, and the financial aid form can be found in Google classroom.
Every parent, band/guard student, and staff member of the Lake Norman High School Band is automatically a member of the Lake Norman High School Band Boosters. All Band Boosters are strongly urged to volunteer, fundraise and support band activities to the best of their abilities.
The band cannot do it without all of our parent's continued support.
Volunteers are the lifeblood of an organization like the LNHS Band Program. It takes a small army to build props, maintain equipment, take care of uniforms, do marketing, communication, and fundraising, transport equipment, feed the band, etc. This is an opportunity for you to be involved in something that will create lasting memories for you and your child and, whether they admit it or not, your child will appreciate your engagement. This is also a chance for you to meet other parents, make friends, and have fun doing something truly unique.
Check out the Volunteer Sign Up page to look for opportunities to help out the band. The more people we have helping, the easier it is for everyone to support this fantastic program.
What the band does inherently involves a great deal of expense. We use our resources efficiently, but there are many needs the program has that cannot be met by district funds alone. Band fees are required of each student when they enroll and cover expenses for transportation, food, instructional staff, props, equipment, etc.
