South Lakes Band will perform at the 2022 graduation on June 2, 2022 at George Mason University. All band students, except seniors, will perform together for this event. Our schedule will be as follows on June 2, 2022:
3:00 p.m.- Rehearsal in SLHS Band Room
4:00 p.m.- Bag dinner which student should bring
4:30 p.m.- Load/Depart for GMU
7:30 p.m. - Perform processional for faculty and senior class.
8:00 p.m.- Depart GMU for SLHS
8:45 p.m. - Return to SLHS.
Since June 3 is a school day we will not be staying for the entire ceremony and should be back to SLHS by 9pm.
Students who have siblings or close friends graduating are welcome to stay at the ceremony but must provide their own transportation back to SLHS. Parents of these students should email Mr. Fore at GFore@FCPS.EDU so he knows they have your approval to stay. On the day of the event you should also text your child your seat location so they will know what section to report to once the band departs. This performance will serve as the final exam for all band courses.
Students should wear dress clothes. You may of course wear your tux or concert dress, but most traditionally wear shirt tie/nice dress as they may be staying to participate in the graduation with their family.
If you are able to chaperone or if you have any questions please email Mr. Fore at GFore@FCPS.EDU
