General Concert Information

Attire:

For most concert attire is Black Pants, Black Dress Shirt with Sleeves, Black Socks, and Black Dress Shoes.  This is also known as Concert Black. 

When other attire is required, like the 9th graders for the Homecoming performance, it is noted on the schedule.

 

Admission Fees for Concerts:

PLSAS charges admission to high school events.  This includes concerts.  Admission is $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for students. We have tried to mark all the events where admission will be taken.

 

Concert Venue:

Almost all of the Concerts will take place in the PLHS Auditorium. We ask that all individuals enter the auditorium on the 2nd level and exit the first level.  Individuals who are unable to do stairs should enter the auditorium on the first level by the Laker Cafe.



Pep Band

The Pep Band is a volunteer organization that plays for ten to twelve varsity sports events throughout the year.  Typically, the pep band plays for boys & girls soccer, basketball, hockey, lacrosse, and volleyball games.  The schedule is still being hammered out for the year ahead, but we hope to have fall dates ASAP.  Participation in the pep band is how 9th graders can earn their varsity PL letter.  Once the schedule is determined, students would need to attend 2/3rds of the events to qualify for the letter.  Students may attend any number of events that suits their schedule just for the fun of it! In addition to sports events, the pep band is called upon from time to time to play for in-school pep rallies, state team send offs or even state tournament sport events.  Again, students should stay tuned to announcements in class for these events as sometimes they have a very short notification.

Rehearsals for Pep Band will be 8:15 a.m. - 8:50 a.m. on Wednesdays

Booster EMAILS - Register to receive emails from the Band Boosters

Do you want to receive Fundraising information and Booster information for your student?    The best parent/guardian email is needed.

There will be emails that the Boosters send directly in the future and we want to make sure that you get them.  This includes emails on ALL Fundraising opportunities for your students, volunteer information, booster meetings, pancake breakfasts, and band banquet.

Please fill out the form below so YOU receive ALL information to the BEST email that works for you. . .

If you would like multiple email addresses for the family to receive these emails (as in multiple parents and student), please fill out the form more than once!

Please note that some emails may not come from Mr. Koehlmoos or Mr. Schramm now about fundraisers as the boosters are the ones that plan and facilitate these events.  This hopefully will allow for more timely information sent and cut out the middle individual when questions arise.
