-The total cost per student for the upcoming marching season will be $320.  A deposit of $50 must be made by May 14th in order to have your student registered for camp.  If possible, we ask that you please write a check or money order to Whitehall Band Boosters and have your student bring it to school to Mr. Raab, or you may also submit payment with Maribeth Picard or Anita Hain at our Spring Concert on the 14th.
-More detailed information on Band Camp and our Fall Schedule will be sent out by the end of the school year once plans are finalized.

-Marching Band Competition-
-We are continuing to plan for hosting our 1st annual Whitehall Marching Band Invitational on Saturday, September 20th!!!  This is a very exciting time for our Band Program and many parents have already devoted their time and resources in the process.  However, we will need 'All Hands on Deck' in order to make this event 'go' and be successful.  If you have not yet volunteered to help, we will have sign ups for specific jobs at our Spring Concert.  Please be thinking ahead of where your gifts/talents may be used best!

Thank you all for your ongoing support of our amazing band students!  Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Enjoy Spring!

Good Afternoon,

I wanted to give you all a heads up that our 7th, 8th and High School Bands will be featured (with pictures) in this weeks addition of the White Lake Beacon.  The article highlights the recent successes of all our groups at District 7 Band Festival this past February.
