2014 Calendar

Last updated June 13th, 2014

 

NOTES: End times are when we will all be back in the WHS band room and dismissed, so you should be able to drive your student away a few minutes after that time. If we are out on the field etc. then we will start moving back to the band room around 10 minutes prior to the end time.

“Take-over the EMS game”. Eat dinner at home (or bring money for concessions), arrive at WHS band room by 5:45 in marching band T-shirt. Jeans or shorts ok. We’ll bus to the game, which starts at 7 with us playing (and “flagging” – is that the right word?) the national anthem. Afterward we’ll store instruments and hang out at the game for a bit. We’ll bus back at the end of the game (or before if we can) and be back at school 9:30ish. If a parent needs to take a student right after the national anthem that is fine, I just need to know in advance.
