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. Links to sign-up: Concessions 10/30
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 weekday 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. Uniform Guidelines
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!
