Chip in for the Bands Golf Outing

Posted on Sep 3, 2020

The cancellation of the Cadets’ season and this year’s homecoming activities mean we won’t be hosting the Fox River Invitational or our annual Homecoming Dinner picnic this fall, two of our biggest fundraisers of the year. So the Waukesha West Band Boosters are swinging into action and teeing up a new way to bring in some green in support of our bands. Please consider chipping in to help us raise the funds we need to keep our band program heading straight down the fairway! Sign up your group now and send in your registration form by September 24th!

Congratulations and Thank You, Seniors!

Posted on May 22, 2020

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.

Waukesha West Band Boosters’ 15th Annual Flamingo Friday will be held at the Delafield Brewhaus on February 21st and we’re hoping you’ll join us as we aim to fill each table with parents, alumni and other boosters who are looking to fight the winter blahs with great food, music (performed by Jazz 1), auction/raffle items and time spent with friends who’d like to support our program. So save the date and make plans to join our flock on the 21st! (Due to space limitations and the nature of the event, please note that this is an adults-only evening.)
