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

Tuesday 10/27:                 Wendy’s Community Night – The L.C. Bird Marching Band will receive 15% of ALL sales between the hours of 5:00 and 8:00pm. This is the perfect excuse not to cook dinner and instead bring the family to Wendy’s @ 6451 Centralia Road (Martin’s shopping center in front of Dollar Tree). Feed your family and support the Skyhawk Marching Band!

Saturday 10/31:                State Competition – We want to make sure we are prepared. There are several items relating to this competition that we need to touch on.

  • Pit Crew/Chaperons: Please review the attached sign up genius link to make sure you do not need to make any changes to your sign up:

  • Candy Bags: Traditionally we give candy/snack bags to each student after the state competition. This is a reward for their hard work and dedication as this competition marks the end of their competition band season. This year is extra special as the competition is also on Halloween. The kids look forward to their candy bags each year and I have already heard murmurs throughout the band wondering if they were going to receive them again. We are going to need donations of candy to make this happen. If you happen to be visiting the awesome new Kroger in Chester….throw a couple of bags of Halloween candy in your cart and drop them off in the band room. We will have someone check the band room each day this week to make sure the candy gets into the right hands and into the right place. Please try to have all donations in by Thursday 10/28 if possible so we can get started assembling the individual bags and have them ready for the competition this Saturday 10/31

Thank you all in advance for your participation in something the kids very much look forward to!!!
