Viper Band Family,
I hope your summer is going well and that you are getting some much deserved rest and relaxation.  Please take a look at the attached Summer Announcements for some reminders of upcoming dates and events, along with preparation needs as we get closer to summer band rehearsals in August.
As a reminder, all students participating in band must have a physical completed.  You can find the LISD physical form at
Please also take a look at the attached March-a-thon flyer.  The March-a-thon is our first fundraiser of the year and is held during Summer Band in August.
At this point, you will begin to receive biweekly announcements and reminders regarding the upcoming school year and marching season.  I look forward to seeing you all in August.  But for now….enjoy your summer!!
Go Vipers.
