On September 20th, there will be no after school band rehearsal. I am required to attend a training at the District Office and will be unable to make it back before rehearsal. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
To download the required forms for our band program, please visit our forms portion of the website. From their you will be able to access (view/print) our Band Handbook, Band Order Form, Honor Band Forms, Fundraising Information, Power of Attorney (requires a notary) and our Trip Survey’s. We are still in the process of updating our Band Handbook and Fundraising Information, but everything else listed has been updated. Students will be given a copy of these forms during Band Camp and the 1st day of school.
For a student who wishes to participate in either “HOT Day”, USF’s Festival of Winds, FSU’s Tri-State, or the All-County/All-State Band’s, you must fill out the appropriate forms… the Trip Survey, Honor Band Forms, and the Power of Attorney (which gives us the ability to seek treatment for you in the case of an emergency).
These forms are important!

[wpsqt_survey name="Band Banquet"]
Today, the Fivay High School Band Program began it’s K.I.S.S. (Keep it Simply Soy) Candle fundraiser. Every candle being sold costs $12.00 and comes in 18 different scents. Every candle is made from soy, burns for 65 hours or more, and the profit goes directly into your student band accounts. For every candle sold, $5.00 will be placed in your student account, that can be used to purchase supplies (reeds, oil, grease, etc…), band shoes, band shirt, your Lakeside Jazz trip, band banquet, etc… The money can even be applied towards your costs for next school year. Remember, this fundraiser is only as successful as you make it!
This fundraiser will close on March 4, 2011. All money and order forms need to be returned on or by March 4, 2011.
