Squad Captains Elizabeth M. / Jon B. / Jake B. worked the band very hard during Band Camp and the the first couple weeks of school.

A special Thank You to all of the Parents who were able to attend and help with all of the little things as well as the big things. “From pouring a small cup of water or carrying a cymbal to getting ice for the coolers 3 times or pushing a marimba or cheering along the route” , please know it was ALL Greatly APPRECIATED! Thanks Parents..

Also a Hearty Congratulations to Thunder Ridge HS and Highlands Ranch HS for doing a Fantastic job at the Parade as well!!!! Yeah to all of the Douglas County Schools that participated!

How Can I Get Involved?

PARENTS: I have had several of you ask “How can I get involved”? The answer is quite simple, just do something / anything… Everyone brings different strengths and abilities to the organization. A great way to start is just by coming to a booster meeting. Come meet the parents of kids your kids are friends with. Who knows? They may be just like you and you might even make some new friends. The meetings usually last for 90 minutes once a month. See you at the next meeting!

PARENTS: The following are ways to get involved-
1/Come to a meeting(s) 2/Double Angel 3/Garage Sale 4/Run for a band Officer position 5/Help w/the MANY jobs during summer band camp and the fall season 6/Pit Crew 7/Driving the Truck 8/Marching Festival 9/Craft Fair 10/Jazz Festival 11/Spring Concert Hospitality 12/Silent Auction 13/Golf Tournament 14/Band banquet 15/Web site management 16/Fundraising 17/Quartermaster assistance or maybe you have a unique business, service or contact that can help the band. As you can see – THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO GET INVOLVED! To get involved – Contact Rob Moroni Booster President or Suzette Farrar Booster Vice President.

Thanks Mr. Otis

Legend Band finishes 6th in 3A

Congratulations to the 2009 LHS Marching Band. On Monday, Oct. 26th the Band competed in its 1st CBA State Marching Championship
in Pueblo, Colorado. The band finished 6th in the 3A class. The band started the day in 7th place and after pre-lims had moved up to 5th place and by the end of the day at the evening finals under the lights of the Thunderbowl Stadium they finished 6th!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOW!

Our students competed in their 1st year of marching at the very highest level. Their hard work, perserverance and dedication to excellence of the activity paid off.

There were many highlights throughout the day, but a student favorite was the FULL BAND RETREAT that we were a part of. All of the finalist bands were paraded back on to the field for the final awards… what a site to see our 70 kids standing in perfect attention and parade rest during this memorable ceremony.

Congratulations to the 2009 Legend Titan Marching Band! We are all VERY PROUD of you!

Our season started in July when it seemed like no one knew what was going on including the difference between left and right face, but we soon got that figured out. After summer band camp, learning music, breaking down drill, a parade, an overnight trip, 4 football games, homecoming week, a marching festival, the CBA contests and Tuesday/Thursday rehearsals, it all started to make sense. “It Was A Journey” !!!!!!!!!!! Thanks to everyone for travelling with us…. The Legend has begun…..

Thanks to the students, the boosters(who all went the extra mile), the parents -You know who you are and THANK YOU! Rob, Linda, Tohbias, Alex, David, , Erin, Rachel, Ryan, Tucker, Erik, Angelo, Heather, Charlie, Russ and Katie -you also made a difference! And finally, thanks to our principals – Corey Wise (Legend) and Karen Tarbell (Cimarron) we appreciate your support!
