Seminole County Marching Band Festival Tickets $6
Seminole County Marching Band Festival tickets are available. Each student will receive 2 tickets to sell. We ask that each parent purchase the two tickets so we are able to pay for our buses to SCMBF on October 17th. Tickets are $6 each in advance and we get to keep all the money that the tickets bring in. If you wait and purchase at the gate the tickets are $7 and we receive none of the money. So, please help us out and purchase two tickets!
We perform at 7:00pm a Seminole High School on October 17th. Call time will be at 1:30pm at LMHS. Chaperones will need to be at LMHS at 2:00pm. Come out and support the LMHS Marching RAMS!
Water Still Needed 2
Yes parents, we are still in need of the smaller bottles of water for our games on Friday nights. 8oz bottles are what we are using this year. Please donate the water to our band kids. All you have to do is to bring a case or two (or three-four or five) to the band room. We do very much appreciate all donations!
Time Changes for the Month of October
For the month of October, because of the soccer schedule, we have to change our times for rehearsals. On Tuesday nights we will rehearse from 5-7:30pm on the Football field. Thursday's will still be from 3-5:30pm. On Tuesday's this will get the students home one hour earlier (which is good for homework and rest!). Mark your calendars and please look at the 2015 Calendar to the right!
2nd Payment for the Band Trip to Washington DC 2016 Due 10/16
We still have room for more students or parents to attend the 2016 Band Trip to Washington DC. The trip is scheduled for March 17-22, 2016. Presently we have 54 students and 4 parents who have made their 1st deposit. If you would like to go, just let me know and I will add your name to the list!
The 2nd payment of $200 is due on October 16th with checks made payable to LMHS Band.

Our season seems to be going by so quickly. We have played 5 games with 5 more to go. The Varsity team is 1-4 and 0-2 in the conference. There is still a chance for a playoff game, but we have to win the rest of the conference games. Fingers Crossed! In a rainy night in Oviedo, the LMHS Varsity Team played hard but came up short again. Our wonderful band students still continue to support our school and our team and work to give them energy to win. Let's see more parents at the next game on the 9th.

RAM TOWER ALMOST COMPLETE
Nearly 3 years ago, A few of us (alumni and present day kids) envisioned a teaching tower to be placed on the Ram Band Practice Field instead of a scaffold rented from year to year. One that would be a first of its kind in our area and definitely the first in Seminole County. After years of raising funds and donations from supporters, parents and alumni, the tower is near completion. McGuire Brannon-Alumni drum major of LMHS, drew the original plans with the same dream that I had, and after several meetings with the Seminole County School Board, General Contractors and the builder, the plans were approved. Below are pictures of the tower which when the room is attached will be over 30ft tall. This will be a testament to the support of our community, alumni, school board and administration. The tower will be a landmark for all to see as well as a symbol of community pride, achievement, and unity. If you would still like to make donations to the tower fund, please make checks payable to LMHS Band or send your email address to:
firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you a paypal request for the amount you would like to donate.
Seminole County Marching Band Festival Food Orders are due!
Each year, the host school provides lunch/dinner for the kids at a low cost. This year each student and chaperone has a choice between FIREHOUSE SUBS: Ham, Turkey, Roast Beef or Veggie sandwich. One more choice comes from Chic-Fil-A and is a chicken sandwich. Each comes with a bottle of water, chips and a cookie and is only $6. All meals are pre ordered and our boosters, once they arrive, will set up tables and hand the food out to the kids. Most students do purchase meals (and some purchase more than one) just for the convenience. They gather and have the meal on the field, track or bleachers with friends from other bands. We will take food money until Thursday. Make checks payable to LMHS Band. Also, if there is an issue where a student cannot afford a meal, please let Mr. Mitchell know in a private email or call. We WILL take care of your child!
