  1. BOOSTER MEETING
  • All LN Band parents are invited to attend our first parent booster meeting on Tuesday, August 14 at 6:30pm in the band room. This is a great way to meet your Band Booster Board members, find out about fundraising opportunities, and become an active part of our LN Band family! There will also be a Meet and Greet session with our Band staff at 6:00pm.
  • Click here for a list of all LN Band Booster Meeting dates for the 2018 – 2019 calendar year.

 

  1. VOLUNTEER MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
  • Beginning July 1, 2018, LN Band has switched from using Cervis to signup.com for our volunteer management. This change not only saves money that can now be used for our students, but also allows for easier access on mobile devices for volunteers and coordinators. We had received quite a bit of feedback from parents about difficulties using the Cervis system, and we’re hoping that switching to signup.com will alleviate many of these issues.
  • You do not need to register an account, or keep a password on Signup.com to sign up and volunteer! Signup.com also does not retain or share your email address with any third parties.
    • Parents of Marching Pride students should be familiar with this program, as it is the same one that has been used successfully by MPLT for the past few years.
  • Currently, only the Breakfast Sale and Concessions fundraisers are listed on Signup; see below for links to each of these fundraisers, and check future listservs for more opportunities to volunteer!
  • Email Jen Jansen at jenniferjansen@msdlt.k12.in.us for more information, or with questions.

 

  1. BREAKFAST SALE FUNDRAISER
  • What is the Breakfast Table Fundraiser? It is one of our most profitable fundraisers that supports ALL of our Performing Arts students, by supporting our student scholarship fund AND allowing parents to earn money towards their student’s account. Volunteering at the Breakfast Table is also a great way to meet fellow Performing Arts families! This being said, we need many volunteers to keep bringing in funds.
  • What you need to know to help:
  • Work any school day from 8:00 am to 9:15 am
  • Work with 1-2 other band parents.
  • Earn $5 toward your student account for every shift worked
  • Students may work with their parent as the third volunteer and earn a second stipend.
  • Any adult who wants to help a band student is welcome; parent, grandparent, aunts, uncle, cousins, or good friends
  • Use the Sign Up link (http://signup.com/go/tVnZSrt) to sign up for shifts
  • Receive email reminder for shifts you register for
  • This is a fun easy fundraiser to work. It brings in between $100 - $200 profit a day.  If we do not get people to sign up we will lose this valuable fundraiser. 
  • PLEASE check your calendars, schedules, and hearts.  Find a time when you can help and then sign up.  If every student had an adult who could volunteer just 3 times during the school year we would have all the slots filled.
  • If you have any questions or need help signing up please contact Gayle Cartwright gmjc031154@comcast.net or call 317-439-4020.

 

  1. CONCESSIONS 
  • Concessions are a huge fundraiser for the Band Department and for your student account! 
  • There are many shifts available in the evenings during the week, and throughout the day on Saturdays for people to work at athletic events selling concessions.
  • All family members, 16 years of age and above, are welcome to participate. 
    • Each person receives $20.00 per shift, which goes directly into your student’s account, $30 for stand managers* (with training). 
    • There will be a limit of 3 signups per family until everyone has a chance to signup (no limit on Friday night football games). A message will be sent when families can sign up for additional shifts.
  • Please contact Tonya Laudadio for more information.  Email: tonyalaudadio@yahoo.com.
  • To sign up: Go to http://signup.com/go/RbPHOeR
  • Stand Managers are needed!  A Stand Manager helps open/close the concession stand and is the person “in charge”.  Please email Tonya Laudadio if you are interested in becoming a Stand Manager.  There will be a training session.
