Below is from Mrs. Oyan regarding the successful completion of this year’s Concert Band Assessment.
“Dear Skyhawk Band Family,
I want to first congratulate the Skyhawk Band students for their Superior Ratings at Band Assessment last week! While ratings are not the only thing that we strive towards in our playing, I know my students can all now say how great it feels to work so hard and earn this rating. No other organization in this school has this many students working towards a common goal. In addition, no other organization counts on EVERY student pulling their own weight like band does. The lessons your sons/daughters learn will follow them into adulthood, and I thank you for supporting your son/daughter in this endeavor!
I would also like to thank all of the parents who came out and helped this event run smoothly. We could not have done this without you. Preliminary estimates are that we have raised approximately $4400 for equipment/supplies for our band program. Thank you, thank you, thank you! In addition, thank you to the executive board of the band boosters, all the festival committee chairs, and everyone who gave their all the weekend of March 7-8. I am so proud to be the leader of this amazing band community!”
