Fall Marching Band Camp

posted Sep 25, 2018, 4:08 PM by Aladdin Roque-Dangaran   [ updated Sep 26, 2018, 1:22 AM ]

The Leilehua High School Marching Band will be having their annual Fall Marching Band Camp from Monday, October 8 to Thursday October 11. This is a sleepover camp so please make sure they pack appropriately (see attached).

If you do not want your child to sleepover make sure your select the appropriate checkbox! I would however encourage you to allow your child the full camp experience. This is a great opportunity for fellowship and lifelong memories. As always, ample adult supervision will be provided at all times.

The band booster will be collecting $35 per student for food and drinks. You may choose not to pay this but you will be responsible for providing meals for your child (see attached schedule).  Please make all checks payable to “LHS BBA”.

On our last day Thursday, October 11 Parents and friends are welcome to come and see a preview of the show. Gates open at 6:30 pm, see you there

Best,

Aladdin Roque-Dangaran

Marching Band 2018 Season

posted Jun 11, 2018, 5:45 PM by Aladdin Roque-Dangaran

Hello Band Parents and Students,

I am Aladdin Roque-Dangaran and I will be your Marching Band Instructor for this upcoming season. Some of you may know that I have been helping and assisting the LHS band program for the past three years, so I am very excited to be coming back! I have already talked with the band leadership and we are all eager to get things going.

Though we are starting the season, there is still time to register! The sign up is located under "Look at these now!" on the left of the website page. We are always looking for new and returning members to keep our F.I.R.E going. 

As far as practices for this year, I am planning on keeping what has already been posted. Starting Monday, June 18 practices will be 2pm-330pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Percussion and color guard will have an additional practice from 4pm-6pm. Summer band camp will be from July 23-27. More details about the camp will be posted as it gets closer. If there is any changes that need to be made to practices, I will do my best to give a 2 weeks notice. All practices and events will be posted on the website calendar.

I understand that it is summer vacation and some families may be on trips, but your child can still join the band, just have them register and contact me to let me know that they are still interested in joining.

If you or your child will not be able to attend a practice, please fill out the "Excuse Note Form."

This Friday, June 15 there will be a mandatory meeting for all marching band students. They should already have been notified by their section leaders. This is a great opportunity for the members to meet the staff and their leadership and start bonding with each other.

The marching band order form is posted under "Forms and Docs" and will also be distributed to the students at the orientation. 

I am looking forward to a great season! If you have any questions, please email me at a.roquedangaran@gmail.com.


Remember, at Leilehua we play with F.I.R.E

Summer Marching Band and New Director Search

posted May 24, 2018, 12:52 PM by Jenna Eggering

Dear Parents/Guardians and students of LHS Marching Band,

With the school year coming to a close we wanted to ensure everyone that the school strongly believes in and supports the LHS Marching Band. It will continue to thrive with the support and passion of all those involved including yourselves. As you are aware, the school is currently in the hiring process for the next Band Director. We are working diligently to hire the best candidate to fulfill this role. Unfortunately, until this role is filled, we cannot hold marching band related activities at the school without proper supervision. It is our goal to have someone hired in the coming weeks to get the students and staff on the field as soon as possible to begin their summer practices. We ask for your patience in this process, and know, we fully support and will do everything we can to continue supporting this amazing program. 
Please check back on the calendar at www.leilehuaband.com to look for adjustments to the schedule. Practices the week of June 4 and June 11 have temporarily been removed and other dates after that remain, just as a holding place. We will send out another email once a director has been hired and with a practice schedule/meeting for everyone to attend.

If you have any further questions, please contact Vice Principal Laurie Pe'a at Laurie_Pea/LEILEHUA/HIDOE@notes.k12.hi.us

Mahalo for all your hard work, dedication, and most importantly patience and understanding during this transition time.

Important Announcement!

posted Jul 25, 2017, 2:59 AM by Alan Kinoshita

Aloha Band ‘Ohana,

 

I want to thank everyone that has helped to make Leilehua one of the finest bands in the state! We all have worked together to build a strong, vibrant and successful band program. Each of us dedicated countless hours doing what was necessary to provide the best learning opportunities for the students.

 

With a heavy heart, I wanted to let you know that I will not be returning to Leilehua next school year. I have accepted a position at Kamehameha Middle School on the Big Island. After weighing all the factors, my wife and I decided it was the best decision for our family.

 

The hardest part for me, is leaving the best band ever! Please help me by supporting your child during this difficult time.

 

Again, I want to thank everyone for the love and support you have shown me and my family throughout the years and wish you the very best in the future.



                                    Sincerely,



                                    Alan Kinoshita
