Senior Trip – Final payment was due this past Friday. I must have this in my hand today or you will be dropped form the trip.
Drum Majors, Band Captain, Logistics Manager and Section Leaders – I need to have a quick meeting with you guys right after school today to go over some things and give you information on Leadership Camp.
Please notice that the meeting for all Auxiliaries (Dance Line and Color Guard) students and parents will be May 9th at 6:00pm in the LHS Cafeteria. This will be a mandatory meeting.

The Lowndes High Band is now offering for sale all of its Baritones and Mellophones that are currently in their inventory. Please see Mr. Bowman for details.
We will be selling our stock of Jupiter Quantum Trumpets. They will range from $400-$500 depending on the condition of the instrument. We will offer them to the Lowndes students first and then will open them to the public. These will be great instruments for practice and to have as your personal instrument. They will be cleaned and polished upon purchase. If you are interested, please see Mr. Bowman for details.
Our senior trip to Disney is right around the corner. Here are a couple of reminders.

The cost breakdown is as follows:
Quad Room: $700.00/person
