LPHS Band Information Letter - Incoming Freshman
The Peacock band familiy would like to thank retiring band director Mr. Michael Chiodo for his years of service. At the same time, we welcome incoming director Mr. Steven Pyter. This transition is somewhat special, as Mr. Pyter is both a Lake Park and Peacock alumnus. We encourage all 8th grade band students to continue their band experience at Lake Park. Please see the LPHS Band Information Letter for more details.
