Notes from the Director

Congratulations to the Los Altos Winter Guard in their second competition this past Saturday at Monrovia High School. They had a much improved performance and increased their score. You will be able to see their very uplifting show at the Taste of LA on Friday.

If you have items still to donate for the Taste of Los Altos Silent Auction, please bring them to the band room as soon as possible. It takes time for our team to organize them and get them ready, so your timeliness on this is respectful of the efforts of our awesome volunteers. All students should have received their Taste of LA tickets to sell. We ask that every student sell at least 4 tickets to the event. More tickets are available in the office, online on our website, and at the door on the day of the event. Let’s make a good effort to maximize our effectiveness for this fundraiser to help pave the way to the future. Students are asked to wear Los Altos colors for the event and also to help set up after school so that we can start the event at 6 PM fully ready to serve our guests. Any parents willing to volunteer to serve, please make sure to use the Band app to sign up. We also have a Sign Up Genius for the food that you are going to donate. All families are requested to donate one dish per child in the program. The dish should be approximately sample size servings. There are two drop-off times noted on the

Sign Up Genius request. You can sign up here https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70A0548A4AC2CAAFF2-taste. Students will be released after the gym has been cleaned up and all equipment has been stored properly. Checkout will be with Mr. Laging. Students must stay for the full event to receive full credit for this event. Students should check in with Mr. Laging by 5:30 PM.

The Jazz Band and Winter Guard both have competitions on Saturday, so please come out to support them if you are able to. The Jazz Band performs in the West Campus Multipurpose Room at Esperanza HS in Anaheim at 11:35 AM. There is no admission charge. The Winter Guard competes at Paramount HS at 3:31 PM, and tickets are $13.

PLEASE CHECK THE CALENDAR BELOW FOR ALL FESTIVAL REHEARSALS. THESE ARE REQUIRED FOR THE INVOLVED STUDENTS.
