Please click HERE for the 2020 WMB Absence Form! Make sure you still talk to a director BEFORE you are absent whenever possible! Get excited for the season!
Greetings Marching Band Families!
HERE will find the 2020 WMB Cover Letter and Commitment Letter for our upcoming season.
Please note, we are asking for commitment letters to be in no later than the Monday when we return from Spring Break. However, the sooner the better! We want to start planning and getting the season underway, and the more people we have getting their stuff turned in, the quicker we can do that!
We know that finances are one of the biggest concerns with your participation in the WMB. If you and your family need to make adjustments to our payment schedule, please contact Mr. Pohland! The dates we have are mostly just to give you a spaced out timeline, but if there are other dates that work better for your family, that is ok too!
Please let us know if you have any questions.
Can’t wait to start our season!
Good afternoon WHS Band Students!
Attached and below you will find a bunch of things related to Marching Band!
1. The trailer releasing our show and trip can be found HERE!!! It is going to be awesome!
2. The packet for auditioning for Hornline (all wind instruments) can be found HERE.
3. Colorguard Meet and Greet Dates are scheduled for the following dates at Bayview Elementary: January 21st and January 28th from 6:30 to 8:30pm
4. Drumline Meet and Greet will be on Tuesday, January 21st from 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM in the WHS Band Room. Auditions will be the following week on Tuesday, January 28th from 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM in the WHS Band room.
At this time, we don’t have a cost for the season ready for you, tuition costs typically fall in the $400-500 range, and our trip is typically $400-500 as well. That is a good guage to help you plan, and we will get final costs to you all as soon as possible. If cost is an issue for you, please don’t assume you can’t do WMB. Please see Mr. P, Ms. Wilmes or Mr. Snyder and let them know your concerns and we will do everything we can to still let you march!
