ATTENTION - It's Due!!!
T-shirt money and band contracts are due July 11
Tshirts are REQUIRED and cost $18 (you will wear them at times instead of the uniform when it is hot).  Contracts can be found in the Band and Images Handbook that was passed out during mini-camp and practices.  If you do not have one, please talk to Mr. Hopkins ASAP.
Volunteers Needed!
Band Camp is coming! We need help to staff the snack table and t-shirt table for band camp.  The times are 9:30am-1:30pm each day of camp.  Please consider taking a day off of your usual work to spend with our kids!  Sign ups are on BringIt.  Click here to be taken to the sign up sheet.

WE NEED the following positions filled - please volunteer to help make our kids' experience the best it can be!
  • Treasurer - to start 2019-2020 school year! It would be best to shadow our current treasurer this football season to understand the job.  LEARNING THE TREASURER'S JOB WILL COUNT AS YOUR CONCESSION STAND COMMITMENT FOR THE SEASON (no need to work the stand in addition to this).  Need to be good with numbers, like counting money and making sure things add up!! Contact Lisa Brawdy for more information - whhsbpo+treasurer@gmail.com
  • President - to start in 2019-2020 school year as well - talk to Ellen Kiley for details at whhsbpo+president@gmail.com

Authentic Embroidered Marching band merchandise such as hoodies, long/sleeve t-shirts, drawstring bags, hats and so forth will be available for sale. Order forms will be provided at band camp with deliveries following shortly thereafter.

We need a merchandise chairperson!!  Opportunity for parent to single-handedly or jointly with others to run merchandise sales:  to order, set-up and run the merchandise table for home football games, the home band competition and possibly other opportunities. This is a nice chance for raising money for the marching band, socializing with other parents, and volunteering outside the concession stand during the games and competition.  Please, contact Jennifer Chontos or any of the band officers if you have any interest in this position.  Thank you!
