Pondering From the Podium, August 27-31

Happy Friday Parents and Students


What a great week the Lobo Band had for its final week of summer band 2018!  The parent preview of part two from our “reJOYce” show Friday night was outstanding!  We had such a great crowd attend, cheering and supporting our Lobo Band members.  There was plenty of room in the bleachers this year with the new extensions and the Lobo Band Boosters were selling shaved ice afterwards making for an incredible evening of JOY!

Now for what is coming up this week!  There are a lot of first’s this week; our first week of school, our first football game, our first rehearsal following the new school schedule, Lobo Kick Off, and our first time to wear our summer uniforms.


First week of school:

  1. Students please make sure that you bring your instrument on the first day of school, we WILL play during classes.  We have already established rehearsal procedures, supplies, rules, etc….  We are ready to go!
  2. We will have rehearsal on Monday evening from 5:00PM – 8:00PM. Please make sure you bring your marching clothes to school to change into.  Also check the Charms Calendar for all upcoming rehearsal times!
  3. Game Day is almost here! You will get a detailed schedule from Mrs. Mendez by Tuesday.  Please make sure that, for the game on Friday, you have your blue band polo, khaki shorts, black belt, black band shoes, short black socks and a super excited attitude for Friday Night Lights!!!  Please take care of your band fees in order to pick up the summer uniform items that were ordered.
  4. Wednesday is Lobo Kick Off. Band will report to the bandhall at 5:45 PM. Please wear a blue, white or black Lehman Lobo shirt.
  5. Check Smart Music – we need all students prepared on their music. Our first Marching Contest is in less than one month and want all music memorized and rehearsed!
  6. New “reJOYce” custom jackets (uniform tops) are here!!! We will begin fitting the students this week.  They look absolutely awesome!!!
  7. Bus assignments will be posted this week as we prepare for our first game Friday night!
  8. The Meal Plan is in effect for this game. Make sure your student is part of the meal plan and your dinner will be delivered to the school before we depart.
  9. Loading Crew, we will open the semi-trailer at practice this week to develop our process for equipment loading and unloading. Please be prepared!



It’s a great day to be a Lobo!
