  1. LN BAND WEBSITE & LISTSERV ISSUES
  • WEBSITE: We are experiencing ongoing maintenance issues with the software used to update the lnband.com website. While we continue to work on resolving these issues, please refer to the LN Band Booster Newsletters for the most current information.
  • LISTSERV: The listserv issue should be resolved! If you still aren’t receiving our weekly newsletter, please contact Jen Jansen at jenniferjansen@staff.msdlt.org.

 

  1. VOLUNTEER MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
  • Beginning July 1, 2018, LN Band has switched from using Cervis to signup.com for our volunteer management system. 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 have 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. CONCERT ATTIRE
  • Our first concert is Wednesday, September 26th and we will begin fitting students for concert attire starting tomorrow! We need a few volunteers to help on 8/21/18 and 8/23/18 anytime between 9:30am - 11:45am, and 12:30pm - 2:00pm. If you have an hour or two to spare during this time, please email Jen Jansen at jenniferjansen@msdlt.k12.in.us
  • If your student still has their concert attire from last year, please have them try it on to see if any items need to be replaced.
  • Uniform Requirements:
  • Concert Band: Students must wear all black dress attire. This includes a long-sleeved, collared black dress shirt, and black pants/skirt.
  • Symphonic Band: Students must wear all black dress attire. This includes a long-sleeved, collared black dress shirt, and black pants/skirt.
  • Wind Ensemble: New students will be fitted for a black concert dress, or concert tux ensemble (includes a dress shirt, vest, pants, and a bowtie) and jacket.
    • These items will be purchased through the band department, and charged to your student’s account. Tux jackets will be rented to students for use throughout the year, and returned at the end of the school year. All other items are purchased by the student, and do not need to be returned.
  • ALL STUDENTS must wear black accessories (belt, shoes, socks, etc.)

 

  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 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 our program 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 an email reminder for the shifts you register for
  • This is a fun and 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’s 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.
