Back to School!!

Dear Wakeland HS Band Family and Friends,

 

I hope everyone enjoyed the last weekend of summer!! As we begin school this week, I want to thank the all of you for pushing through band camp and setting the standard for the year.

 

I would like thank all of the parents who helped out with popsicles for summer band and to all parents who have helped get everything started for the year.

 

A few announcements and reminders as we begin the school year:

·       Please go to the whsband.squarespace.com/documents/ and view the 2016-2017 Band Handbook. There are some attendance policy changes to this year along with detailed rules/regulations for the WHS Band. The acknowledgement page is due before Friday and every student must submit before they travel with us to the football game.

 

·       This week’s uniform for the football game in the “Star” will be school dress-code Khaki Shorts, belt, ankle-high socks and tennis shoes. Nike has donated shirts for every band program and the students will be getting those in class on Thursday or Friday this week.
