JOB POSTING - Immediate Opening for Front Ensemble Instructor
Due due relocation of staff, the South Lakes HS Band has an immediate need for a front ensemble (percussion) instructor for the 2014 marching band season. Knowledge of Main Stage and sound experience preferred.
Any interested person should contact Grayson Fore immediately at GFore@fcps.edu to discuss responsibilities, schedule and pay scale.
Thank You for Supporting Tag Day! Donations Still Accepted!
On Saturday, September 6th, over 100 South Lakes HS Band students fanned out across the SLHS community to ask for donations as part of the annual Tag Day tradition observed by bands throughout FCPS. As always, our amazing community responded generously!
Thank you to all who gave in support of our outstanding band program! Your generous, tax-deductible contributions will help support students who have financial need, as well as help the school purchase uniforms and instruments. Your contributions toward these items will benefit students for many years to come.
The kids did their best to knock on as many doors as possible, but if we missed you and you would like to support us, there's still time! You can:
Every donation makes a difference! Thank you, again, for your support!
