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!
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!

With the new high school getting completed, the music teachers have requested additional funding for vital equipment such as an electrical industrial garment conveyer and trolley system for safely moving and storing precious clothing such as marching band uniforms, concert dresses, and costumes for the Barnstormers Drama Club used throughout more than twenty performances each year. This will be utilized by the entire George P.Read Music Department.
This garment storage and trolley system will cost approximately $22, 000. We need help to raise these funds.
Please buy a ‘Hanger’ for the new storage system and your name or whoever’s name will be on a plaque in the new performing arts wing.
Email Lkwdmusicboosters@gmail.com with what name to go on each hanger that you purchase.
Thank you for your support!
One ‘hanger’ for $30
Four ‘hangers’ for $100

We are selling 100 football ‘squares’ for the 51st Superbowl Sunday, February 5, 2017 – NRG Stadium – Houston, TX. Each square that you purchase gives you a chance to win $200.
Once all the ‘square’ tickets are sold we will randomly assign you a football square per ticket. You just need to wait til the game is played to see if you are a winner. A winner will be determined at the end of the 1st quarter, 2nd quarter, 3rd quarter, and Final Game score. The winner is determined by looking at the last number in each teams’ score, and then matching those numbers on the grid and seeing which square intersects those two numbers. An example would be if the Miami Dolphins were playing the New York Giants in the Super Bowl, and the score at halftime was Miami Dolphins 23, and NY Giants 14. The last number for the Dolphins is 3, and the last number for the Giants is 4. The square on the grid that has the Dolphins with a number of 3, and Giants score of 4, would be the winner.
Please consider a gift to our teachers via “Notes of Thanks”- that is, helping them stock their classroom with much-needed music supplies! You can help by choosing an item off of our “Notes of Thanks” board at the music concerts and purchasing it through Amazon Smile- your gift will give TWICE as we can get the teachers the items they desperately need AND LMBO will get .5% of the purchase price as a “kickback”- which goes right back to funding scholarships, events, and programs at Lakewood City Schools!
You can select shipment to our Lakewood Music Boosters Post Office Box and we will get it to the right school/teacher!
