Parents of experienced Corps members will be there to answer questions, provide history of the Corps, registration and fee information, as well as the upcoming Fall Performance Schedule. The first Corps rehearsal is Wednesday, September 7th, from 3:30 – 5:30 in the gym and children in grades K-8 are encouraged to join. More detailed information will be emailed soon to all LHS families and there will be a table tonight at Back-to School Night.
