    WEEK OF AUGUST 12th Update:

    PARENT PREVIEW is on Tuesday August 20th Parent Preview @ the Wolvarena ALL STUDENTS SHOULD REPORT DIRECTLY TO THE WOLVARENA at 6:00 pm. Parent Preview will start at 7pm when football team is finished with their practice. There will be a Band Booster meeting directly before the Preview. It is extremely important that all parents attend this meeting!  😊


    New Volunteer Requests!  Our Marching Band and Images could also use 4-6 Parent Volunteers for Our Kennywood Day.  Our Vice President will also be reserving on of Kenny's, Kabana (near Noah's Ark in the center of the park) for people to stop by, leave items if needed, and meet up with other band families.  Watching the parade from the main cafeteria with the large wraparound porch is also a great place to see our students march!

    PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE get your training documents (RAMP is you are new, and the annual documents if you took it a year ago and it hasn’t expired).  Details are here:

    Band lottery calendars are now available for next year. They are $20 each and band members earn $6 for every calendar sold.  Each calendar enables players (purchasers) to win if their number matches the Pennsylvania Lottery Evening Pick 3 Number on a given day. If the player's number is drawn Monday through Saturday, they win $20; if their number hits on a Sunday, they win $50; and if their number hits on the specific holiday per month, they win $100. Numbers are distributed randomly. As a seller, you do not have to pay for calendars up front. Just return any unsold calendars to the chairperson before the end of the calendar year. Turn player information stubs and checks made out to WHHS BPO for sold calendars in to the chairperson, Mary Conti by phone at (412) 867-6818 or e-mail at cookwithmaryconti@yahoo.com, or ask Mr. Hopkins.

About the Band and Woodland Hills High School Band Parent Organization

The Woodland Hills Marching Band and Images Ensemble has approximately 175 members in grades 8 through 12. The band members are from the 11 communities that comprise the Woodland Hills School District. These students perform in many community events, including football game half-time shows, parades, marching band festivals, and a major biennial band trip. Band students also tend to be leaders within the high school.

 The Band is supported by the Woodland Hills High School Band Parent Organization (WHHSBPO), one of whose purposes it is to raise the necessary funds to cover all Marching Band expenses. The Organization also provides chaperones for the various events and orchestrates the fundraisers that enable the Band members to raise the necessary funds to cover their trip expenses.

The major biennial trips are both a great honor and challenge for our students. Because of the quality of our past performances and the character of our students, Woodland Hills High School Marching Band and Images Ensemble has been invited to participate in many large venues throughout the United States. They include:
  • Disney World, Orlando, FL (2018)
  • Gator Bowl, Jacksonville, FL (2015)
  • Fiesta Bowl, Phoenix, AZ (2013)
  • Disney World, Orlando, FL (2011)
  • Fiesta Bowl, Phoenix, AZ (2005)
  • Hollywood Holiday Spectacular in Hollywood, CA (2003)
