Good Evening Skyhawk Band Family,

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. It is hard to believe the end of the year is almost upon us. Time truly does wait for no one!

As the holidays kick into full swing…our L.C. Bird Band and Chorus will be sharing their music with us during their Holiday Concert this Thursday December 10th, 2015. This event starts at 7:00pm and call time for the students is 6:00pm.

As a thank you to the parents for a successful marching band season and first half of the school year…we would like to invite you to “pre-concert social” in the large commons. When you drop your student off for call time at 6:00pm – please join us and the other band parents for punch and light refreshments.

We will mingle and snack prior to the start of ticket sales and entry into the concert at approximately 6:40pm.

We are truly thankful for each and every parent and their assistance this band season and for allowing your child to be a valued member of the band.

We look forward to seeing each of you Thursday December 10th @ 6:00pm in the large commons.

*On another note…we have been provided an updated delivery date for the fruit fundraiser orders. The delivery date has been set for Monday December 14th. We will send out an email with more exact details and instructions for picking up your fruit later this week. Please stay tuned…..*

Good Afternoon Skyhawk Band Family,

The band will perform in the stands at the football game at Hermitage High School this Friday 11/20.

Students should wear their current year’s band t-shirt under their winter coats/jackets and meet at 6pm on the grassy area to the left of the stadium at Hermitage High School.

Students may wear a “beanie” hat as long as it is a LCBird Hat or solid color such as black, grey, navy blue, or white.

Feel free to carpool as necessary.

We know logistics can be difficult with away games like this, but we really need to put a strong group together to support our team.

All students attending will need to sign up on the door to the band room by 2pm Wednesday.

We look forward to seeing everyone Friday night as we support our 3 time State Champion football team as they continue their quest for number 4

Hello Skyhawk Band Family,

As you may know, we have recently partnered with Florida Indian River Groves for a fundraiser selling fruit to raise money for our band program. This was one of the larger traditional fundraisers planned for the season and with participation from all students, it would have accounted for approximately a fourth of what we needed to raise for the year.

Unfortunately, we’ve only received 16 order forms back out of the 66 band students along with four online orders. There is a minimum requirement of 100 boxes to submit the fundraiser order and as of October 31st, the band was short by 30 boxes. We have been able to get an extension through November 4th to accept additional orders in hopes that we can meet our minimum requirement.

If your child has not turned in an order form yet, please have them turn it in no later than Wednesday November 4th to Ms. Oyan. We need participation from the entire band to make this a successful fundraiser. Online orders are still being accepted as well at using the Organization ID-433603.

Thank you for your continued support,

LC Bird Band Boosters
