Parents,

Find band announcements for this week HERE.  One additional item: please consider giving to the East Band on “Give to Lincoln Day” this year.  The date is May 25th but you can do it anytime from now until then.  Here’s the LINK along with a description from the website:

The success of our band program relies on volunteers and donations to supplement the annual budget provided by LPS.  Each year, families are asked to make a contribution of $100 per student to cover the cost of instrument repairs and replacements, competition travel expenses, clinicians and additional camp instructors, and other needs identified by the Band Directors throughout the year.  

Approximately 60% of our families donate approximately $15k toward our $30k annual budget.  To offset program costs, the rest must be made up through fundraising activities.

The goal of this campaign is to maximize individual annual contributions through collection of payments and sponsor matches on Give to Lincoln Day.  When making contributions toward a specific student’s annual fee, please follow up with an email to the Boosters at eastbandexecutiveboard@gmail.com indicating:

1. The name of the person making the donation

2. The name of the student associated with the contribution

Donations received without a follow-up message to the Boosters may be allocated toward the general fund.  Thank you for your support!
