Music Matters – Make your voices heard
On May 6th, near the end of Spring Showcase the band parents, students and supporters were apprised of a change to the Associate Band Director position at Oviedo High School. Due to appropriation changes the OHS administration has only offered a part time position to Mr. Kolodinsky.
The Oviedo Band and Color Guard students need and deserve two full time positions permanently placed in the appropriations. Please join us in voicing our opinion and request to OHS Administration and the Seminole County School Board to provide the financial resources and commitment to TWO Full Time band director positions.
Attached are two letters. The first is parent and support information along with email and phone numbers for your OHS administration and school board members. The second is a letter prepared by the OHSBBA executive board. You may use this letter and submit on your own or return to the band room c/o Michele Byington, OHSBBA President or via email to email@example.com.
Thank you in advance for those that signed letters last evening. Please do not stop there voice your opinion and to your elected school board officials.
The OHSBBA will update you when new information is available. Music matters!

Thank you parents and students for volunteering for Concessions. As you know, our Band Boosters provide Concessions for most field events at Courier Field and our students work these games to earn money for their student accounts – this money can carryover to next years band/guard fees. During JV Football, Soccer and Lacrosse, adults are there to provide supervision and to help when it’s busy but primarily, the students handle all the jobs – cashier, cooking, popcorn, pretzels, clean up, etc. Student sign up is in the band room.
OHS is hosting the Spring Football Classic May 19 and report time is 6pm. We only need a few adults as we want to maximize the student opportunities.
Maxpreps has posted the OHS Home Football Varsity schedule and we will be running concessions on the following varsity home games: August 26, September 23, October 7, October 21 (Thursday game) and November 4. Preview of Champions is November 5. Home JV games are Sept 1, 8, 15,29 (all Thursday games) and October 12 (Wednesday).
Sign up will be in the band room when we return to school. Any questions, email email@example.com. Thank you for your support.
