Shamrock Pride Competitive Marching Band (Competitive Band, Guard and Percussion): Mandatory Dates are: Spring Call-Out Meeting, Freshmen Camp, Leadership Training (for those wanting to be in band leadership), Full Band Music Camp, Full Band Movement Camp, Marching Band Camp, mini-camps and all competitions. A 75% attendance requirement applies to all other scheduled dates. The absence request form is available for download here. Absence request forms must be submitted at least two weeks prior to the planned absence. Submission of forms does not necessarily guarantee an excused absence. Unexcused absences and absences that are not communicated will count against the student. Poor attendance and/or unexcused absence during mandatory dates will likely result in assignment as alternate.
All Other Programs (Friday Night Band, Concert Band, Symphonic Band): Attendance for performances is expected.
Fees must be up to date for continued participation in WHS Band Programs. The 2016-2017 fee schedules for each program follow:
Please feel free to pay the full amount at the beginning of the year or split payments according to the schedule below. Payments dropped off in the Band Booster box must be in an envelope with the student’s name and what the payment is to be applied to. Checks must be made out to Westfield Band Boosters and have the student’s name written in the memo field of the check.
