Thank You for Supporting Tag Day! Donations Still Needed to Meet Our Goal!

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:

  • mail your check (payable to SLHS Band Boosters) to PO Box 8561, Reston, VA 20195, or
  • donate securely ONLINE by clicking the DONATE button on the right side of this page.

Every donation we receive will help move us closer to our goal! Thank you, again, for your support!

Immediate Openings for Front Ensemble and Color Guard Instructors
