There are so many thank yous to go around...
=> Thank you to our band parents and alumni band parents who came out week after week to build, paint, and move our props and equipment!
=> Thank you to everyone who went to Hershey to cheer us on!
=> Thank you to WDBP Board for organizing the parents bus and tailgate lunch in Hershey!
=> I would like to thank our incredibly talented staff. Some staff members drive OVER AN HOUR each way for rehearsals! Each year our staff grows. They are so committed to giving the kids the tools they need to succeed. Our staff is extremely caring, talented and committed to the program. They almost make me obsolete! So, to all of our WDMB staff, THANK YOU!!!!!!!
=> Thank you to the Verga Fire Department for escorting the band home! This was a special surprise!
=> Thank you to everyone who has tirelessly supported the WDMB week after week this season.
Looking ahead, there are still 4 possible football games and the Salem & West Cape May Christmas parades before this season is complete. While our largest focus is usually on our TOB competitions, we must now keep up our energy and attendance until the end. Students who do not meet these final performance obligations will not receive any band awards/honors. This is not the time for students to disappear. The full band has obligations and just because they are “only football games” students are not to schedule other events or create conflicts. Every performance is important and every member is obligated to be in attendance!
This week we have only two events:
1. Recording rehearsal on Wednesday. Color guard will begin preparations for the Christmas parades.
2. Playoff FB on Friday at WDHS. NOTICE - This game has a 6pm start, not 7pm.
