Marching Band 2017 Parent Meeting Tuesday February 28th

We are so excited that while it seems like it can’t be true, Waconia Marching Band (WMB) is just around the corner!  We hope you all are as excited as we are!  Just a couple quick announcements for now, and much more to come soon!
  1. We have a WMB Rookie Parent Meeting scheduled for next Tuesday, February 28th at 7 PM.  Looking forward to meeting you all and getting you some more information on having your son/daughter involved in our program!
  2. For all members, both rookies and veterans, please keep your eyes open for our WMB Commitment Form, which we are hoping to have out within the week.
  3. For those interested, almost all of the dates for both rehearsals and performances can be found on our Google Calendar, found at waconiabands.com.  Many families find it is really nice to just sync the WHS Band Calendar with their own calendars so that all dates are there.
Go Big Black!

Waconia Lions Help Band!

 

Thank you to the Waconia Lions for help raising over $2500.00 to support our very own Waconia High School band program.  Through the Lion’s annual calendar sale many of our students will see direct benefit through their “Charms” accounts.  We look forward to having an even better calendar sale starting next fall!
