Band Retreat Update for January 28-29, at Warm Beach Camp. As a reminder, Band Student Council Representatives have proposed an overnight Band Retreat for Friday, Jan.28 through Saturday Jan 29, to be held at Warm Beach camp near Marysville, WA.  Activities would include team building through an outdoor adventure course,  meals, and some general bonding time with our fellow band members.  School bus transportation to and from, meals, and lodging would be provided for a cost to each band student of $90.00.  We would leave LWHS at about 2:30 p.m. on Friday and return to LW at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday.  If there are any parent volunteers who would like to chaperone, we would welcome that.  Please email me at<> if you would like to chaperone.  Students interested in attending will need to pay the $90.00 fee to the ASB Bookkeepers Office (Checks made out to LWHS) by Friday, January 7.  This retreat is an entirely optional event.  We will use it as a prepatory event in order to make us all the more effective as a team and as a band for our main priority, our trip in May to Anaheim, California for participation in the Heritege Festival.
