Our Indoor Percussion and Winter Guard groups are both in the midst of a busy season. Our Winter Guard had their first competition on Saturday February 3rd at Cleveland High School, and came in second place with their show, “This is Halloween.” Congratulations, Guard! Keep up the good work!
Our Indoor Percussion group is practicing diligently for competitions coming up in March. Their show will have a familiar sound for those who saw the marching band in the fall…hint, hint!
To keep up with both groups, be sure to follow us on Instagram!
Our biggest fundraiser of the year is right around the corner, so mark your calendars! Comedy Night brings together the whole band family for a night of laughs and camaraderie! This year’s event will help us secure new uniforms for the fall marching season, among other things…so exciting!
Parents: we need your help procuring items/services for the silent auction. You should have received an email from booster president Mike Allen. Students: we’ll need your help serving food at the buffet that night. Plan now to join your band friends for a fun-filled evening!
Join your band family for two upcoming spirit nights! And don’t forget to invite friends, co-workers, and neighbors…these are great opportunities to add to our band account. With the new uniform purchase coming up soon, we need all the help we can get! Here are the dates and locations:
October 16 (all day) Schiano’s 948 Gateway Commons Circle in Wake Forest schianospizzawf.com
November 8 (all day) The Mac House 14460 Falls of Neuse Rd #167 in Wakefield www.themachousenc.com
Want the opportunity to perform with the Power Sound of the South? Join your fellow WFHS bandmates and sign up at gopack.com/bandday to be a part of the NC State Marching Band’s Band Day on September 9th in Raleigh. Practice with the band, share a meal together, and enjoy some great Wolfpack football! Then perform with them…an experience you won’t want to miss! We’ll ride over together in activity buses; event time is approximately 3 – 11 pm. Parents can also purchase game tickets to witness all the excitement! For more info, see Mr. Tucker.
Support your band student! We are still taking Spirit Wear orders. If you’d like to get in on our first order, please turn in the form below with payment to Deanna Welker at the Thursday August 24 practice. Orders received after that time will be placed with our round two order in mid-September. Students, don’t forget to order your very own show shirt, with the awesome Alcatraz design!
Our first band fundraiser kicks off this week! Each student will be given five copies of the Attractions Dining and Value Guide to sell between now and August 17. Guides sell for $20, and we make a 50% profit on each! Also, even though this edition will be for the Triangle area, please know that your student can also request guides for other areas, such as the coast or the mountains, or even other states, so these can make great gifts, even for friends/family that live elsewhere. For more info on what areas are available, visit https://www.attractionsbook.com/ For more info, contact Deanna Welker at firstname.lastname@example.org
