Prior to the kickoff of tonight’s Lakota East at Lakota West football game, each school’s marching band will perform together. According to the Lakota East Upbeat Club, there will be 750 band students jamming out to Journey songs “Don’t Stop Believin” and “Any Way You Want It.”
“We are so hoping for a positive message that impacts any last-minute voters to understand how much our music program means to the students and really, our community,” said Cindi Dawson, communications coordinator of the Lakota East Upbeat Club.
The Lakota school levy will be decided Tuesday, Nov. 2. The levy, or Issue 2, is a 10-year, non-continuing, 7.9-mill emergency levy that will cost approximately $242 per year per $100,000 home valuation.
If the levy fails, the school district will make $12 million worth of reductions, which includes the elimination of many Lakota extracurricular programs.
Both Lakota West and Lakota East currently feature award-winning music programs.
At halftime, Lakota East will perform its fall 2010 show “2010 A Space Odyssey.” Lakota West will also play its fall show “The Journey.”
