Tag Day - September 6th! We need your support!

On Saturday, September 6th South Lakes Band Kids will be knocking on your door to ask for your donations. Our goal: Raise $25,000 in one day. Tag Day is the band’s largest fundraiser and supplements funding provided by Fairfax County Public Schools.

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. You may also donate ONLINE by clicking the DONATE button on the right side of this page.

When you hear the knock on your door on Saturday, September 6th, remember the efforts and hard work these high school students put forth every day for the band and the community. Please be generous with your donations!

Immediate Openings for Front Ensemble and Color Guard Instructors

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. We also have an immediate opening for a color guard instructor for the 2014-2015 school year (marching band and indoor seasons).

Any interested person should contact Grayson Fore immediately at GFore@fcps.edu to discuss responsibilities, schedule and pay scale.
