As we look forward to the summer and the coming year there are several exciting new programs and opportunities for our students at Lamoni Community School District.
First, we are excited to be able to provide summer lessons for our students at zero cost to families. These lessons will begin on July 10th and 11th and run for five weeks with August 7th and 8th being the last days of summer lessons. I will be at the school from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. each Tuesday and Wednesday between those dates providing lessons to 5th-8th grade students. Each lesson will run for thirty minutes. Lessons will be prioritized to new band members and 5th grade students as well as being on a first come first serve basis should I fill up. That said, I will try my best to provide a lesson as many students as I can.
Another change that relates to our summer lesson program is that I am requiring all NEW BAND students (including 5th grade students joining band this year) or those who are changing instruments to take summer lessons in order to join band. Like I said above, I understand that some people are traveling and have conflicts throughout the summer. I will work with you and your family, however I really need to see new students over the summer for a couple reasons. Most notably, if I don’t get to see them before we start school they are going to be so far behind their peers that it is really hard to catch back up. I want to get them started, and if we work hard for 5-6 weeks I can more easily integrate those students into the band without them feeling completely lost. If you are concerned about this and whether your child will be able to be in band because of summer plans/traveling do not hesitate to reach out to me. I am more than willing to make exceptions and find a solution, but I want to have a plan in place for those students. My school e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be checking that throughout the summer.
To those students who are interested in possibly being a part of a new Drumline forming in LMS and LHS please click HERE to sign up for a remind101 text list so I can reach you over the summer as I get more information and try to get this up and running.
We are very excited to be able to provide this for our growing band program. Please take advantage of it!
