The Cadets have had an impressive start to their competition season and are getting ready to “march” on with another weekend of activities! Parents should check their email for information about Friday’s homecoming game performance and details about Sunday’s activities leading up to the Cadets’ performance at Nathan Hale Stadium. For details about the competition including ticket prices, performance times and a layout of the stadium, please click here: Wisconsin Lutheran High School Marching Band Invitational. For directions to Nathan Hale Stadium, click here.
We’re looking forward to another great performance and hope to see a big crowd of Cadets fans this Sunday!
A big thank you to all of the cadets, parents, family members, volunteers and participating schools that helped make Sunday an incredibly successful event for the Waukesha West Marching Band. The event would not have been so successful without your help. And there would probably have been even more people soaked from the thunderstorm.
Here are Sunday Placements from the Fox River Invitational:
The West Band Boosters are offering one more chance for parents, students and friends of the program to order spirit wear. All orders will be delivered to the school and given out after rehearsal on October 12th, just in time for the state marching band competition! This is the last time this season spirit wear will be offered, so don’t miss this chance to support all the band students at West with a purchase. Spirit wear makes great holiday gifts, so if you’d like to get a little shopping done early and have your order delivered privately, please email Kelly Crawford at email@example.com and she will make arrangements with you.
Orders can be made here now through September 25th. Order early, order often!!
The Cadets could use a few more parent vounteers to help load and unload equipment from the buses before and after compeitions and to make sure everything gets on and off the field. If you can help with any (or all) of this year’s competitions, please sign up here and we will get in touch with you. Thanks!
This year’s competition schedule: September 24th at Waukesha South October 2nd at Wisconsin Lutheran October 8th at Cudahy October 9th at Fort Atkinson October 15th at UW-Whitewater
The two biggest band fundraisers of the year are quickly approaching! The success of these events and their ability to support our band program and students rely on the efforts of all our parents, alumni and friends and we still need some volunteers to help make 2016 our best year ever! Please check out the SignUpGenius links for the Fox River Marching Band Invitational on Sunday, September 25th and the Homecoming Dinner on Friday, September 30th before the homecoming game to see how you may be able to donate a couple hours of your time on either (or both!) days.
As always, we appreciate your help and generosity. Thank you!
