Here you will find all of the information you need to register your student for the Regiment new school year, either as a musician or color guard. If your family is new to the marching band there is a lot to learn, but there are experienced people to help you so make sure you ask questions if you are not sure. It is important that you returns forms and information on time to ensure the smooth operation of the band.
Below are the key dates and information related to registration. You can download these forms from this page, or from the Documents and Forms page. (Not all links are active yet, more forms will be added in coming weeks.) All of these forms will also be provided to you at the Fall Parent meeting. This page is intended to help you with registration only. Be sure to consult the Band Calendar or download a copy of the Lancer Regiment Schedule to find dates of all practice sessions, competitions and other events throughout the season.
Note that all payments should be cash or check (payable to 'LHS Band Boosters'), and must be enclosed in a Deposit Envelope. Be sure to pick up a supply of these at the Fall Parent Meeting or from Mr Balog's office during school hours.
