Parade Call Time

Good evening,

I hope you all are enjoying time with your families this weekend.  We had a great time in Chicago yesterday, thank you to all the parents that helped out.
Call time for the parade tomorrow morning is 9:30am in the middle school band room.  Students should be dressed and ready for warm up by 9:30.
Students need to remember their black shoes, socks, and show t-shirts.  We are not wearing hats or gloves tomorrow.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you,
Mr. Raab

Good afternoon,

We have a busy weekend ahead of us and so I wanted to send out reminders regarding our upcoming events.
-Graduation:  The ceremony will be in the WHS gymnasium, therefore, call time will be 5:45pm in the HS band room.  Uniforms will be the same as the spring concert, spring/business casual.
-Chicago Trip Saturday:  Buses will depart from the west parking lot (student lot) at WHS by 6:00am.  Please plan to arrive and board the buses no later that 5:45am.  Students are expected to wear dress clothes for the performance, they may choose to bring them and change into them during dinner before the concert.  Students are being encouraged to 'pack lightly,' as we will be on and off the buses, and doing a lot of walking throughout the day.  
-Memorial Day Parade:  Call time is 9:30am at the Middle School band room.  Parade will step off from City Hall at 10:30am.  The memorial ceremony will begin at Covell Park at 11:00am.  Students should return to the MS around noon.  Students must have their black shoes, black socks, and black show shirts from the Fall.  Studens do NOT need to bring their hats, as we do not wear them for this performance.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
Take care,
Mr. Raab

Good evening,
Here are a few reminders about our concert and rehearsals this week:
-Jazz Band:  We will have jazz band rehearsals Tuesday and Wednesday mornings this week (the last two for the school year :)

-Spring Concert: Wednesday, May 18th @ 7:00pm WHS Auditorium.  Call time for students is 6:15pm in the auditorium.  We will have a reception in the Viking Center following the concert, so please bring cookies to share!
-Concert dress:  Spring/business casual; no t-shirts, shorts, blue jeans, or tennis shoes.  

-Band Camp Deposits/Sign Ups:  Your students' $50 deposits are due by Wednesday evening.  Our boosters will have a table set up where you can pay your deposits, as well as sign up to volunteer for the many events we have coming up, PALM biker meals, band camp chaperones, etc.
-Chicago trip meeting:  Immediately following the concert, we will have a VERY brief meeting in the auditorium for all parent chaperones that will be attending our trip on the 28th.  We will quickly go over chaperone responsibilities, as well as the itinerary for the day.
Please let me know if you have any questions.  I am looking forward to seeing you all Wednesday night!
Thank you,
Mr. Raab
