New Uniforms Unveiled Last Night

With lots of help from a great group of parent and student volunteers, we were able to get our new uniforms off a UPS truck and onto the field in a few hours! We weren’t even slowed down by a little rain.IMG_4524

IMG_4526Band members put in a few extra hours “on the clock” to get fitted for the new uniforms. Irons and ironing boards circled the band room so we could get the pants and sleeves creased and looking sharp.

Thanks to the support of the LSW administration, LSW Music Parents and the LSR7 school district, we’re excited to start the next chapter in the Titan Pride Bands with our new uniforms from FJM!



Titan Pride Update addendum and edits

Hi there! UNIFORMS ARE HERE! (Well, they will be Friday morning, supposedly) Ha!

We NEED NEED NEED volunteers this Friday, October 10 from 2:00pm until gametime getting all of the kids fitted in their new uniform. This is QUITE the task, so please don’t assume someone else will do this. We REALLY need many volunteers to make this happen. There are SEVERAL jobs needing to be filled for that day. If you are, at all, available, please go to CHARMS and sign up to volunteer.

Here is the uniform fitting plans for Friday:

All Juniors and Seniors

Uniform fitting time is after school beginning at 2:30pm. This means you will need to have the following with you when you come to school:

  • black socks
  • marching shoes
  • BLUE uniform shirt
  • very light/tight shorts or leggings (baggy shorts, even baggy althletic shorts will NOT work with this new uniform)
  • all ladies will need to have their hair in a bun for the game

All Freshmen and Sophomores

Uniform fitting time is 4pm to 5:30pm. It is crucial we make this happen, so I will be buying pizza for dinner for all freshmen and sophomore band members so they have dinner before the game.

I fully understand this timing will be difficult for some, please let me know how I can assist in making carpool arrangements or coming and picking students up if need be myself.

You will need to show up ready for the game at 4pm with the following:

  • black socks
  • marching shoes
  • BLUE uniform shirt
  • very light/tight shorts or leggings (baggy shorts, even baggy althletic shorts will NOT work with this new uniform)
  • all ladies will need to have their hair in a bun for the game

BIG mistake on the Bronco Invitational itinerary. Here is the new one:

(See attached file: Bronco Invitational.doc)

The change is that we WILL be taking a bus back to LSWHS after the event.

Also note that if your son/daughter will be taking alternate transportation to/from the event, I MUST have written notification by Friday (if this, in any way, involves the student transporting himself/herself, it must have administrative approval.)

Did I mention we need volunteers on Friday starting at 2pm?

See you all later this week!

New Uniforms and LSN competition

Greetings! There is a lot of information for the music parents this week. Scott and I have combined our emails so you will find an assortment of information in this email.


Great news…the new band uniforms are scheduled to arrive at the school on Friday. The challenge is that we need to fit 100 band members into their new uniforms before the football game Friday night. Several parents have met over the last week to devise a game plan for distributing the uniforms as quickly as we can, while keeping the chaos manageable.

The game plan calls for 2 assembly lines with 6 different stations on each line. In order to fully staff the assembly lines, we are asking for 30 volunteers. If we have that many volunteers, then we are confident that the kids will be looking sharp in their new uniforms for the Friday football game and that all the parents will be able to enjoy Senior Night.

Time: 2:30 to 5:30

Where: LSW band room

How to volunteer: Sign up in Charms (instructions at end of email), come to the band room and you will be assigned to a station with documentation of the job responsibilities for that station.

If you can’t be at the school at 2:30 but can help later, please go ahead and sign up in Charms.

Just send me an email to let me know when you will be there.


Please join us at the band’s campsite on Saturday. We will not know where our campsite is located until we arrive. Just look for our two big white trailers. There is no charge to hang out with the band.

We are having pulled pork and drip beans (aka fantastic baked beans) for dinner. You may eat with the band. The cost for adults is $7 per adult and $5 for middle school age and younger. Please e-mail Mary Grigsby (marygrigsby) with a head count if you plan to eat dinner with the band (do not include your LSW band student in the count). If you have special dietary needs please give Mary a call at 816-785-5215. Food may be available for “Walk-ins” on Saturday after the band and those that e-mailed Mary have been served.

There is an admission to watch the performance from the stands. Adults are $10. Students are $5. Kids under kindergarten age are free. Please take pictures. We need pictures to share during the end of the season banquet.

Thank you again for not parking in the driveway near the band doors during loading and unloading. As always, we can use lots of help loading and unloading. We have new shelving in the percussion trailer to help us be organized.

Thanks again for your support of the LSW Music program!
