Dear Marching Band,

We have been invited once again to perform for the opening ceremonies for teachers this Thursday morning.  This is an exciting opportunity to celebrate our teaching staff and share our progress thus far.

When: Thursday August 28, 8am. Everyone needs to be in the band room by 7:45. After we perform, we will still have a full rehearsal. The exact rehearsal time will be announced tomorrow.

Uniform: 2014 Pride shirts; shorts  – your choice (as long as they meet school dress code).

Please brush up on the fight song. We will be performing it along with a portion of our show.

Thanks everyone!


Mr Mielens

WBHS Director of Bands

Personal and Business ads for the Field Day Program:

On September 13 we host our home show, Field Day.  This is a less formal event than the Invitationals we have hosted in years past. As of today, six bands will participate, but at least two others might register.  The Band Boosters will publish a program, and invite all band members and families to sell ads in the program.  Prices are reduced this year.  The Personal Ad order form is attached to this message.  Parents, take this opportunity to celebrate (and/or mildly embarrass) your band kid.  Section Leaders receive a complimentary quarter page ad to honor their section.  The Business Ad order form will be sent out this weekend.  All ads need to be submitted by September 5.
