Quilt Raffle

Posted on Dec 4, 2020

The West Bands program has been working hard to keep music-making alive this school year. This has meant finding new, creative ways to do what we do, including using bell covers so our musicians can perform safely indoors.

So what happens when you have leftover bell cover material and a super-crafty band mom? You end up with a beautiful quilt available to raffle off and to help raise money for our kids, which will allow you to snuggle up and support our program at the same time! 

Ten dollars will get you one entry into our Quarantine Quilt Raffle. The more you purchase, the better your chances of winning! Please turn in this form and money to the band room or to Kim Dutelle in the main office by Friday, December 18th. The winner will be announced LIVE on December 22nd at 11:30 am (details on where and how to come). All proceeds will directly support our students and our efforts to overcome every challenge that 2020 has thrown at us.

We may not be together in person to congratulate our band members for their excellent work this year and to recognize our seniors for their innumerable contributions to our program over the past four years, we decided to pay tribute to them in the form of this Waukesha West Bands 2020 Tribute. Thank you band students, parents, band boosters and board members, alumni, Waukesha West administration and staff and to everyone who has supported our program through volunteering, financial support, attending performance and otherwise showing your appreciation for the music we create together. Our stage may be empty for the time being, but our hearts are full of gratitude!

Class of 2020 Yard Signs

Posted on Apr 19, 2020

ATTENTION SENIORS AND PARENTS! Due to the end of face-to-face instruction and in-school activities for the remainder of the school year, Waukesha West would like to help honor the Class of 2020 by providing a yard sign (18″ x 24″) for every senior free of charge. A group of parents has worked on a design and contracted with a company to have them produced and many of you may have ordered one or more already. If you’ve already ordered and paid for a sign, you will be contacted soon regarding a refund.
If you have not yet ordered a sign and would like only one, you don’t need to do anything. West will be purchasing one sign per senior. Logistics regarding the delivery and distribution of the signs will be announced at a later date. Please continue to read your announcements for details regarding that and other pick-ups that will need to occur before the end of the school year. We are working on coordinating our efforts with several departments.
If you would like to order one or more signs ($8 each) in addition to the one that will be provided by West, please click this link for order information. 
THE ORDER DEADLINE is Tuesday, April 21 at noon.
