All money for All-District ($10) and All-State (additional $10) registrations is due to me by Friday, September 30. Cash or check made out to Westover Band Boosters. One check will be written to GMEA for the school's registration.
Our Band pictures were made last week. However, It’s not too late to order photos. This service was provided free of charge. The only income the photographers receive are when parents purchase portraits. Please support this project by purchasing a package. They offer a 100% money back guarantee if you are not satisfied with your photos.
If you decide to order after the 5 days, please send in envelope directly to Prestige Digital Imaging. Make sure you add the $7.00 shipping fee ONLY for orders that are sent directly to Prestige after the 5 days.
Thank you for your help.
Tomorrow, Tuesday, after school, we will be sizing for uniform orders for marching band members after school. All rookie members need to be measured for bibbers, shirts, and shoes. All veteran members should bring in their bibbers, shirts, and shoes to verify that they are in acceptable condition.
In addition, any members who have not paid fees in full as of tomorrow will not be allowed to march in Friday's scrimmage game or any following games until they are caught up. In addition, uniform parts can not be ordered until fees are paid, therefore students may miss additional games while we wait for this parts to be delivered.
Same letter that was mailed out last year. Updated dates.
Band Camp Dates

Parents, please join us Thursday evening from 6pm - 7pm for "Commitment Night". The first $25 of this year's Band dues will be due then. We can not write people into the show over the summer who are not sure of their commitment level.
Here is a letter to middle school Band students. They should also take a look at the handbook for important dates and information.
Here is the most current version of the Westover High School Band Handbook. A section will be added about lettering in Band by the time we start school next year. Also, the Concert/Symphonic Band performance dates will be added.
You must have the attached form signed by a parent and returned back to me to get on the bus Friday. We should be gone about 12pm-5pm.
Here is a letter I passed out yesterday. We need this back tomorrow to know if we're going to be able to do a trip or not. Thanks!
Here are the two permission slips and the letter handed out during class a couple of weeks ago. We still need a couple of chaperones for each group.
Here is the schedule for students travelling to the All-District Clinic this weekend. All students should be at Robert Cross Middle School to catch the bus by 9:30am. Please think of all the equipment you need to take to participate. I will supply everyone with a wire stand. Please keep up with it. We should return about 7:30 pm Saturday evening.
Congratulations to all those that made All-District bands.

LETTER HAS BEEN UPDATED TO RELFECT CORRECT FEES. PLEASE READ AGAIN.The following letter should be mailed out by Friday. Please read and pay particular attention to band fees information. Also, please TELL A FRIEND/FRESHMAN about band camp if you haven't heard from them yet this summer.
Hello, Marching Patriots! I can't express how excited I am to be named your new Band Director. Please feel free to sign up for updates on Twitter (public) and Celly (private) using the details on the right. Mr. Scanling should have sent you the password via his final message from Remind. You do not have to have an account for either one of these services to sign up for announcements.
Meeting/call times and reminders, or any other private information will be broadcast via Celly in the same way Remind was used before. It offers a few different options than Remind that I will explain when we begin Band Camp. Some of those dates my change, so please get signed up now.
Twitter will be a public face that our massive fanbase can follow for pictures, performances, and announcements.
This website will be used to house information that is too much for 140 characters, as well as downloadable attachments, class assignments, an event calendar, etc.
Except for the fact that there is SO MUCH to do between now and then, I truly can not wait to get started with you. I will finish out my Summer enjoying my status as a proud life-long Tornado, but I do promise to ceremonially remove my Monroe tag from my vehicle on the first day of full band camp.
