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.

Your child needs YOUR SUPPORT in order to make Western's marching band program truly "SUPERIOR"! Please attend one of the three upcoming band parent meetings to find out how the band program works, to see how you can pitch in, and to have your questions answered. All three band parent meetings will present the same information so please choose the one that works best for you. The first two meetings will be after band camp at pick up time on Thursday, August 11 and Friday, August 19. The third meeting is TBA but will be the first week of school in the evening for parents who are at work during the day.
Thank you for your support!!!
PLEASE NOTE: The parent meeting scheduled for Monday, August 8, has been rescheduled to THURSDAY, August 11, 2016. We will begin at student pick up time. Thank you!!
