The Grady Band students had a lot of fun using the IB Design Cycle to make some very creative mummies! Check back soon for more photos and to vote for your favorite mummy!
Grady MS Band Parents,
Hi, this is Mr. Chitmon, Director of Bands at Lamar High School. I am contacting you to pass along some very exciting & important information to you and your student regarding band at Lamar HS next year.
The Lamar HS Band will be getting brand new band uniforms next school year! This is a very exciting time for our current band students at Lamar, and I hope your child will be excited as well.
If your child intends to attend Lamar HS beginning his/her 9th grade year, or if Lamar HS in in your child’s top 3 choices for high school next year, we need to get them fitted for their new band uniform. Even if you are unsure that your child will gain magnet acceptance into Lamar, if your child at all wishes to attend Lamar HS, I highly encourage you to have your child fitted for a uniform.
Your child being fitted for a new band uniform is not a commitment to attend Lamar HS, nor is it a guarantee of acceptance to Lamar High School; however, it will guarantee that should your child attend Lamar HS in the Fall of 2015, he/she will have a uniform custom sized for him/her.
By having your child being fitted, he/she will have a new band uniform which will be made specifically to fit them, for them to wear, and designed to accommodate their projected individual growth in height over the next 4 years in high school band!
Stanbury Uniforms will be holding uniform fittings at Lamar High School on
Tuesday, November 4th from 12:00 pm - 7:00 pm in the band room located in room N100 (North-100 in the main building). Students do not need to bring their instrument, as they will only be fitted for a band uniform. I have included the design artist’s uniform design artwork for you and your student to look over as well.
Lamar High School is located at 3325 Westheimer Road in the area of Kirby & Westheimer and/or Westheimer & Buffalo Speedway. The band room is most easily accessible by parking in the East parking lot, next to the tennis courts (opposite side of the school from the large auditorium on the West side of campus). The spaces state “Reserved” however the reserved status only applies until 4:00 pm.
I look forward to seeing you and your student at our new Lamar Band uniform fitting on Tuesday, November 4! If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate contact via email or phone. My contact info is listed below.

*Lamar High School does not charge a uniform fee to the student’s family. Uniforms are provided for student use at no cost provided the uniform is respected as school property, well cared for, properly maintained, and returned to Lamar High School promptly after each use.
Our Grady Gator Band students had a great time with the Lamar High School Band at Delmar Stadium on Thursday, October 2, 2014. Thank you to Lamar's Band Boosters and Band Directors, Mr. Chitmon and Mr. Christian for providing the Grady Band, and all of the other middle school bands a wonderful experience!
Lamar HS Band Night is Thursday, 10/2/14. Students need to meet in the Grady Band Hall at 3:30pm. Students need to remember to wear their band t-shirt and to bring their instrument. Dinner and transportation to Delmar Stadium will be provided for FREE by Lamar High School. We will load the bus at Grady at 4pm. Chaperones need to be at Grady by 3:45pm. We will return to Grady, after half-time, at approximately 8:30pm for parent pick-up.
Congratulations to Grady's Football Team for their Homecoming Win! And many thanks to all the band members that cheered them to the victory! The Grady Gator Band looked and sounded great! Thank you to all the parent volunteers and chaperones for your help with supervision, transporting equipment, and providing water!
Please consider sharing your photos with Mr. Hall so that everyone in the band can enjoy them. Thank you!
