SENIOR NIGHT: A NIGHT TO REMEMBER
November 7th was a great night for all but definitely for our seniors. It was Senior Night where our school celebrates the class of 2015 and their contributions to our programs. Our Senior Athletes, Cheerleaders, Band, Color Guard and Marionettes were all presented to the crowd of excited football fans and each marched down the center of the football field with their families and had their picture taken. As names were called, applause for each senior was deafening.
For our 51 band seniors, it was even more special as halftime came and each senior placed their marching band hats on the sideline (signifying their senior status) and marched for the very last time their last regular season football game-HATLESS. Winning our final game of the year was just the icing on the cake. Thank you again Seniors for an amazing season and for all you have done to make us a success!
SENIOR SPEECHES were amazing and very heartwarming. We have some amazing kids in our band and I am very humbled by all of the comments and memories of the their time with the band. Thanks for a great 4 years...seniors!

LMHS Marching Rams-SUPERIOR!
2014 20142014 Marching MPA is in the books and the LMHS Marching Rams wowed the crowd with their Beatles Show. From the very start, the audience was a part of the show really getting into our music and visuals. From Ian Gile's "Something" solo at the beginning, Joey Orr, Kevin Solla, Joel Ramierz, Samiha Nazrul and Nick Barrios Dixieland quintet, to Samiha Nazrul's wonderful solo's throughout the performance-it was truly a SUPERIOR evening for our Rams. The show ended with the band singing "HEY JUDE" coming off the field and the crowd joined in. It was EPIC! Some of the judges comments were: Great Job! Wonderful Sound-well prepared, wonderfully entertaining show! But the best comments were from the crowd and other directors who many said it was the most entertaining show of the day. Thank you to our parent corps chaperones and all who have been with us during our season, without you it would be so much more challenging to make things happen. And THANKS to our wonderful students who do "make things happen" with their great attitudes and energy levels.
