BAND NOTES - August 8, 2018
End of Band Camp Celebration
Parents and families, please join us Friday, August 10 from 5-7:30 pm
Get your first look at the performance in the parking lot starting at 5 pm
Dinner in cafeteria, $5 per meal
Pool Party from 7:30-8:30 pm for band/guard students only (pick up at 8:30 pm at Wade Hampton Gardens Pool, across from the student parking lot/practice field)
You can still RSVP (and preferably pay in advance) through the website.
As explained in the new fee agreement, we need to get at least some payment toward each student's band fees now so we can cover early season expenses. Even if you plan to volunteer to reduce band fees, we still need to get something toward the rest of the fee now.
See the full explanation on reducing fees.
Reduce your band fee with sponsorships!
Remember, every sponsorship you bring in comes off the amount of band fee you owe. Look over the process online, get the printable form from that page if you want it, and use that information to ask for a donation. You might not get money every time you ask, but definitely worth the effort to ask the question!
Sponsorships need to be submitted by August 30.
Reduce your band fee - volunteer! Student and Parent Volunteer Opportunities
We still need students, as well as parents, for the Pizza Inn night on August 18. For this one, students must be at least 16 years old. Available slots for 4 students (16+) and 3 adults. Details and Sign up - http://signup.com/go/WdvZFWS
The next opportunity for students is the Car Wash and Bake Sale, September 8. Available slots for 44 students and 34 adults, so if you want to be able to reduce your fees, pick your shift(s) soon! Details and Sign up - http://signup.com/go/GUgCGhm
Parents, many opportunities for volunteering are available for football games and competitions throughout the season. Details and Sign Up - http://signup.com/go/LmEADt
Donations for Football Concessions
WHHS Band Boosters operates the visitor side concession stand as our largest fundraiser. If you shop at Costco or Sam's Club and would be willing to donate an item or two, that's less we have to buy from Booster funds to operate, and more money goes toward band activities.

Drop off and Pick up
Help us stay in good standing with the school - please note our Drop Off and Pick Up Process:
For all practice, games and competitions, NOT JUST BAND CAMP, all band drop off and 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.
Cars should line up to the left, leaving room on the right side for cars to pass.
Students will come to you once dismissed, then you can continue out the back with caution to exit.
No one dropping off or picking up should enter at the back of the school.
The fire lane gates should be unlocked, but please note, if you are early to arrive, you may need to push the gate open. Thank you for your help with this matter.
