MARCHING BAND 2020-
It's that time again. Time to start planning for the 2020 season. Updated information and a new calendar will go out the first week of April. Thank you for your understanding as we work through this unknown time together.
End of the year Concert and Graduation-
We have no information about graduation at this time - please watch the weekly for more information to come in the future.
Our May 12th concert is being postponed to a later date. We hope to be able to announce a new date later in April once we have a meeting with administration to advise available dates. Thank you for your understanding.
ALL MEMBER VOTE ON 2020/2021 BOOSTER BOARD
At this time the All Member Annual Meeting is postponed, in the hopes we can have an in person meeting in the future. However, as current board member terms expire May 31st, and in the interest of having time to train new board members in their responsibilities, we are proceeding with an online vote for the 2020/2021 Board Members. All parents/guardians of Westfield High School Instrumental Music Program (IMP) students currently enrolled in the program and who have paid their student IMP fees are considered members of the Westfield Band Boosters Association. Each family unit has one (1) vote per Westfield High School Instrumental Music Program student.
The voting slate for nominees for the 2020/2021 Board of Directors will be emailed to parents/guardians via Charms tomorrow, Monday, March 30th by 3pm and should be returned to firstname.lastname@example.org by tomorrow, Monday, March 30th, at 6:15pm. If it is a hardship to return the form itself, you are welcome to send an email that states: 1) the names listed are the members for whom you are casting a vote for the 20/21 Board, and 2) list the nominees for whom you are voting in the content of the email (it would be appreciated if you list them in alphabetical order by last name).
Your flexibility with adaptations to these processes in light of current extraordinary circumstances related to COVID-19 is appreciated.
LET"S HAVE A VIRTUAL CELEBRATION OF OUR STUDENTS!
All WHS Band Students are invited to share videos or art that students are working on at home. Our WHS students invest significant effort in so many of their activities, and since we are currently restricted from celebrating them in person, we would love to share their creativity and efforts in a virtual format! Please email any submissions to email@example.com and look for this feature in future weekly emails!
CURRENT/PAST MARCHING BAND FAMILIES - SEEKING INPUT
Hello Marching Band Families,
Are there things you wish you’d known as a first time marching band family, questions you are frequently asked as veteran parents, or goofy terms like “dinkles” that made you say “What?” the first time you heard them? Please send your input to: firstname.lastname@example.org including the answers to those questions if you know them. Hopefully we will have enough info to compile a “Guide to Marching Band Parenting” in time to share with our incoming parents. Thank you!
(HOPEFULLY) COMING UP
End of Year Concert TBA
