BAND NOTES - December 3


The WHHS Marching Band will be performing in the Half Mile Lake Community Parade again this year.

  • Date: Saturday, December 8

  • Call time: 5 p.m.

  • Drop off and pick up location: Paris Mountain Baptist Church on Howlong Ave.

  • Pick up time: approximately 8 p.m. (best plan might be to watch the parade along the route, then you'll know when we are done, or kids can text you when we finish)

  • Wear: Wear jeans and ugly sweaters OVER whatever you need to stay warm for weather.

  • Bring: Large instruments will be transported from school. Otherwise bring what you need to be able to play.

  • Don't bring: bags, backpacks or anything that won't fit in your pocket - there won't be any place to leave belongings at the church during the parade

We are watching the weather and if changes to the schedule are needed, we will communicate that by email and Remind texts.

Fruit sale update and delivery day

Thank you to everyone who sold and who bought fruit and cheesecakes this year. The 228 units sold will mean over $2000 toward the band's operating budget.

Delivery and Pick Up The WHHS band fruit orders will be delivered to the school on Monday, December 10 (time TBD). Once the boxes are unloaded and divided by student seller, they will be ready for pick up. ALL FRUIT MUST BE PICKED UP ON MONDAY. Students should then take the fruit they sold to the people who bought it as soon as possible. Watch for more details by email this weekend.
