Lobo Band Parents – we need your help to make this a successful marching season! PLEASE join the ranks and become an involved band parent. There are many opportunities to help, and no job is too small!
Concessions are our biggest fundraiser, and all football games at the LEAC stadium benefit the band. This is a great way to get to know other band parents, have a little fun, and raise money to offset expenses and registration fees! Please take the time to sign up for a few games. Link to sign-up: Concession Sign-Up Sheet
Additionally, we have broken out the concession duties for the non-varsity games by section, so that band students and SLTs can also volunteer on Wednesday or Thursday nights when they are not performing. The link to sign up for these games is here: Concession Sign-Up Sheet by Section
Our Concessions Coordinator Chairperson is Kacey Myers.
Chaperones are needed for away games, marching competitions, parades and other events that we travel to. Our Chaperone Chairpersons are Angela Myers and Jamie Harris.
Uniforms – Assistance is needed to ensure that our band looks its best at all performances and we have a great group of “Pluming Mommas” to help. Our Uniform Chairperson is Alicia Jackson.
Please contact any of the Little Elm Band Boosters if you have any questions, and stay tuned for additional opportunities to get involved. We cannot do it without you – THANK YOU!

The Little Elm High School Band will present its 2013 Christmas Concert on Thursday, December 19. As always, there is no admission charge and the concert will begin at 6:30 pm, with small ensembles performing in the main hallway outside the auditorium. The bands will start performing at 7:00 pm in the LEHS Auditorium. The Wind Ensemble, Symphonic I, Symphonic II, and Jazz Ensemble will each perform a mixture of Christmas favorites and new arrangements for this Christmas season. We hope everyone will join us for what promises to be a very entertaining evening!
The Lobo Marching Band has advanced to the AREA B Marching Contest, by way of a Division “1” rating at the UIL Region Marching Contest. This event will take place on Saturday, October 26, at HEB Pennington Field (1849 Central Drive, Bedford, TX 76022). Our performance time is 1:30 pm. Please know that traffic to HEB Pennington Field is usually pretty bad, due to the construction in that area. Please allow plenty of extra time in your plans to attend the contest. Unlike UIL Region, there is an entrance fee for Area ($5 adults, $3 children).
FYI, UIL Area does not give ratings like at Region. Instead, each band receives a score and is placed in the appropriate order, from 1-23. The top ten bands advance to a Finals competition at night. Of those ten, only the top four bands will advance to the UIL State Marching Contest in San Antonio. Please attend and cheer for your LOBO MARCHING BAND as we aim to achieve a new standard for the band program!
The Lobo Marching Band will be competing on Saturday, October 5th, at the Broken Arrow Invitational Marching Contest.
