Welcome back, folks! We can’t wait to start another fantastic year of band at Waconia High School.
Get a head start by reading the 2016 – 17 band handbook. It’s filled with amazing information about the upcoming year including dates, course descriptions, grading scales, and so much more. Make sure to get your copy signed and returned by Friday, September 9th.
Tomorrow night’s open house at the high school and middle school is also a great time to reconnect with your band directors.
Open house hours are from 3:00 – 7:30pm. We hope to see you there!
