Here are some reminders and information about this week's activities from the Band Boosters and A.J. Pace, Director of Bands.
Home game this Friday
wear black shirts/blue jeans
call time is 5:30 at the band room
NEW BAND PICK UP PROCEDURE Remember, for all practice, games and competitions, all band pick up will be through the fire lane at the side of the school. Enter the main entrance to the school and follow the lane to the right of the building - see map here. Thank you for your continued patience with this new plan.
GET YOUR BAND GEAR ORDER THIS WEEK! Shirts, sweatshirts, polos, hats and more - students are encouraged to promote the band with casual wear, and family and friends will want Band Gear to show their pride while cheering them on at competitions. The order being sent next week should get the gear in hand by the first competition.
BAND BOOSTERS MEETING - Tuesday, September 6th All parents or guardians of a student in the WHHS Band are members of the WHHS Band Boosters. As a booster member/parent, the expectation is that you will attend the booster meetings held generally on the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at the band room. TUESDAY SNEAK PEEKS CANCELLED Unfortunately, the opportunity to use the alternate field on Tuesdays was denied. We look forward to seeing the band perform soon.
