Band Parent Meeting

Band Parent Meeting

Our next band parent meeting will be held on Monday, April 21st at 6:30 pm in the HS band room.

 This is a very important meeting!!!  We will be covering many things in preparation for ending the 2013-2014 school year and then the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year.  To have a successful band program we need all hands on deck.  Our kids and our band director have worked so hard this last year and have earned many honors and awards.  For them to continue to be successful we must have a strong parent organization to support them and supply them with the tools they need to continue to be successful.  As I was going over the list of graduating seniors this year I am amazed at the possibilities that await them.  I challenge you to ask one of those seniors what effect that the band program at Whitehall has had on their HS career and how it has helped them prepare for the future that awaits them.  This is why, I as a parent, and many of you give your valuable time to this exceptional program.  I encourage every parent to offer whatever time that you spare to support our band program, your young musician will be appreciative and proud of you. 

 Here is a list of some of the topics that we will be covering.

  • Updates on the Fall Marching Competition

  • Pre-camp and Picnic

  • Band Camp August 2014     

  • Concessions-50/50 raffles

  • Tag Day

  • Spring Collage

Blue Lake Presentation Tomorrow

Blue Lake Presentation Tomorrow

Good Afternoon Parents,

Tomorrow during all band classes, Mr. Tom MacNaughton from Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp will be giving a presentation to our students on camp and scholarship opportunities for this Summer.  At the conclusion of his presentation, students will be able to give a brief audition for camp scholarships.  I have given students advanced notice in class in order to have music prepared.  Students may perform a solo, an etude from a method book, or an excerpt from our band music.

If your student is interested in auditioning, please go to the following link: www.bluelake.org/scholarships, print and complete the scholarship application, and have them bring it in to school tomorrow.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Have a good evening,

Matthew Raab
