There is a lot of information to pass on, so please make sure you read this in its entirety.
ALL REMAINING BALANCES FOR BAND FEES ARE DUE TO MR. THURMOND BY TUESDAY, OCTOBER 14TH.
NEW CALENDAR EVENTS!
Wednesday, October 23rd
The band will be playing at the annual Dig for the Cure Volleyball Game, right here at LSW in the Fieldhouse. Students will be receiving a shirt to wear to this event. Families are encouraged to attend. The event raises awareness and funds for Breast Cancer Research, via the Susan B. Komen Foundation. It’s a wonderful event for us to be involved, and I’m excited we’ve been asked again to play. I will have a better idea on time on next week’s update, but wanted to make sure you had this put in your calendars right away to prevent conflicts from arising.
Monday, November 4th
Announcing the date for the Band Banquet. On Monday, November 4th, we will be having our annual end-of-season band banquet at Garozzo’s in Lee’s Summit. More information to follow, but again, I wanted you to get it on your calendars now. This event is for all marching band members and their families.
Football game vs RayPec, call time is 5:30pm (5:15 for seniors)
Tomorrow, VERY IMPORTANT MESSAGE
Tomorrow is Race for the Future on our campus, where hundreds of people will be running a 5K to benefit the students of the LSR7 School District. Our parking lot here will be slammed.
Your ONLY access to the parking lot is the SOUTH entrance. You will need to drop your student off at the back door early enough for them to get their instrument and get to the soccer field THROUGH a crowd of people.
Here is the itinerary again for reference: Bronco Invitational
The Week at a Glance

UCM Festival of Champions
Please review the attached itinerary for this festival. It will be a long day.
I am selling tickets to this event for any family members traveling to Warrensburg for our performances. This ticket will gain you access to all events for the entire day. In addition, part of the ticket price will be given back to the band IF you buy the ticket through me prior to Friday, 10/18 at the ballgame. Tickets are $13 per person (children included). You can send money with your child any day next week or take care of it at the football game next Friday.
Remember, we get 20% of the money back for the band program, so please consider purchasing from us instead of at the gate.
UCM Festival of Champions
Have a great Friday!
