Dear Parents, Grandparents, Alumni, and all of our Wonderful Volunteers: Please click on the "Boosters/Parents" link above to see the list of jobs and committees for January, 2017 through June, 2018. There are many ways you can help support our kids as they work hard to make the Pride of the Wildcats Marching Band SUPERIOR!! There are many, many jobs with varying levels of time commitment so there is sure to be a perfect job for each and every volunteer. Thank you!!
Our marching band presented a stellar performance of their 2016 "Changes" show at the FBA competition and scored an overall SUPERIOR rating, which is the highest score! Congratulations to Mr. Tracey, the percussion and color guard teachers, the volunteers and, most importantly, all of the students for the hard work you all put in to make this happen. GO, WILDCATS!
It is my desire that every member of our band has an enjoyable and successful experience. I believe that if we concentrate all of our energy in the same direction, we will achieve impressive success in the coming year. I hope that you have an awesome band season and an outstanding school year with the Western Band Program where we strive for “superiority” in music education.
