Posted in Uncategorized | Comments Off on BAND BOOSTER MEETING _ 10/6 @ 6:30


We know the forecast for this weekend’s weather is on everyone’s mind. While there is a significantly high chance that we will not be performing at the University of Richmond game on Saturday…..we will not be making the final decision until early Saturday morning.

The game will still go on as scheduled despite the rain unless there is lightning. Our band, however, will not perform if the weather is too bad.

Please keep your eyes on email, the band website, facebook and twitter for an update on the status of Saturday’s performance.

We will send out an update the moment we have a final decision.

Thank you for your patience and understanding!

Band Cancelled for Football Game 9/25

With the forecast calling for rain for the entire evening, we have decided to cancel the event for the band.

Band Students who wish to attend the game free MUST meet at 7pm at the overhang outside by the auditorium.  You must wear your band shirt, and must sit in the band area we usually sit in.  Drumline…bring your sticks and buckets…we will have a spirit section and “bucket brigade”.  Students will have halftime and 3rd quarter off, but must return to the band section for the 4th quarter.

Call time for Hermitage (11:30 am) WILL not change, as the show can be held inside if necessary.

Thank you all and stay dry!

Pit Crew Friday 9/25

Good Evening Skyhawk Band Family,

Thank you all for your understanding with the adjustments to the pit crew. We have received everyone’s reply and have compiled the list for this Friday’s game.

The following names will be added to the list for entrance into the game through the pass gate:

Elizebeth Holmes
Mark Holmes
Ken Spitzley
Page Banfield
Alexis Williams
Jordan Williams
Kim Berak
Cade Berak
Tom Berak
Michele Stevens
Dave Stevens
Chris Taylor

Even though your name is not on the list for this week’s game – please still come out and help. We always need all of our wonderful parent volunteers!

We will alternate the list each week to make sure everyone gets a fair shot.


We are still in need of more parent volunteers to assist with the upcoming competition at Hermitage High School. We need parent chaperones as well as pit crew to help move the equipment on and off the field. Please use the signup genius link below to add your name. Thank you!

Posted in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Pit Crew Friday 9/25


Good Evening Skyhawk Band family,

We have a significant change in procedure for the pit crew/parent volunteers for home football games.

Ms. Oyan was advised by our new athletic/activities director that we are limited on the number of “free admissions” we can allow at each football game. We also must provide a list of each person that will be admitted through the “pass gate” by 10:00am on the Friday of each home game.

We are asking each pit crew member to email: & so we can compile our list of parent volunteers for this Friday’s game.

Elizebeth Holmes will compile the list and inform each person if they are on the list for this week’s game or if this will be a game in which they will have to pay admission.

If Elizebeth informs you that you will be on the list for this week’s game – you will have to enter the field from the “pass gate” to the left of the ticket window. The person as this gate will have your name on the list provided to the athletic director. This is the only way we will be allowed to enter the game without a ticket.

We apologize for the inconvenience of this change. Unfortunately we have no control as this is coming directly from school administration.

Sorry for the short notice, however, if we could have everyone’s response by Thursday evening we can compile the list and send it to the athletic director by 10:00am Friday morning as requested.

Thank you for your understanding as we work to adjust to the requests of school administration.

TAG DAY 2015

Hello Skyhawk Band Nation. Thank you all for your participation in Tag Day 2015. You were able to collect a nice amount of money today. We planned on making it a half day (which is why we cancelled lunch) due to the weather, but everyone pulled through and put in the extra time for the LC Bird Band Program. This is a credit to you, LC Bird HS, and our community. The Blue Ninja Squad brought in the most money today with $300. Congratulations to Caroline Tyler, Sara Flores, Theresa Volkman, and Keiyana Brogden. Awesome Job!! Here are your final numbers…
