On Saturday Sept. 9th (in case of rain then it will be Sept. 10th) the LHS performing arts teachers are holding Lakewood’s first Tag Day (Performing arts students feet hit the street event). Each group will be assigned a geographic zone of Lakewood households. The groups will go to Lakewood houses in their assigned zone and distribute the performing arts schedule for the 2017-18 school year. On this flyer will also be information how to join Lakewood Music Boosters. The groups will be asking for cash donations to support Lakewood Music K-12 and thanking the community for its support in building the new performing arts wing at the high school. If no one is at home the flyer with the information will be rubber banded to the door knob. Tag Day starts at 1pm with adult volunteers meeting at Harding Middle School to pick up flyers, rubber bands and zone information. The performing arts students will meet their adult volunteer at the northwest corner of their assigned zone.We will put one or two adult volunteers with 6 students that will form two groups of three to visit both sides of the street as the adult volunteer supervises from the street. It should take about 2 hours to cover each of the 42 geographic zones. We need 50 adult volunteers for this to be a successful Tag Day. Please help support Lakewood Music!
Lakewood Music Boosters will have our first general meeting on Tuesday, September 5, 2017. The meeting will be in E134, the keyboard room. Please enter LHS through the back double door by the athletic offices. We will have signs! The general meeting starts at 7:30pm. Please attend and learn about our fund raisers for this year and volunteer opportunities to get involved. Come and see the music library and the garment storage system that Music Boosters funded for the new wing!
A huge thank you for the tremendous community support of our event.
We had a very successful evening at Around the Corner with a great food, great singing and great fun; we hope those that were able to attend the Lakewood Sing & Serve enjoyed the evening! We have contacted our prize winners from the chance raffle, and the karaoke machine was well used with performances by both the teachers and the Lakewood students, parents, and friends. All of the money raised from the event will be going directly back to the students in helping fund classroom needs for the new arts wing.
From the families and friends that attended this event; we would love your feedback and suggestions on the evening. What can we improve in order to make the evening even more successful for everyone? We apologize that the space was smaller than we anticipated; but we appreciated the great turnout from the community. The booster’s would like to thank all of the families and friends that attended, as well as the companies that donated items for the chance raffle. We would especially like to thank the Lakewood music teachers who volunteered their time and energy in helping serve at the event: Mr. Waryk, Mr. Fitz, Mr. Blasko, Mrs. Richards, Mr. Hampton, and Mr. Steinbrunner, and special celebrity high school head principal, Mr. Ahearn!
