Hello Warrior Band family,
First week is in the books...and what a football game!! Yesterday was a great day to be a Warrior! Other positives from Saturday: I had reports from the parents that the loading at school was the smoothest its been in many years. Shoutouts to our water, tailgate, bus riders, loading and pit crew...everything appeared to work seamlessly. And one massive thank you to Greg Hollabaugh who put in MANY hours trying to get our soundboard up and running for the first game. Video of the performance can be found here: https://youtu.be/geL5JUdb2bo Lots of things to work on...

Parents on Remind101
I only have 70 subscribers to the parent section :( Remind101 is an easy way for me to communicate important information via text message. All you need to do is text @wb15parent to 81010 to get signed up. It's way easier than twitter!
NYC trip meeting
7pm - Little Theater at MHS
The auditorium and cafeteria are in use on Monday night, but the Little Theater should be open. For those of you who haven't been to the little theater before, we will make sure to have signs posted on how to get there...just enter the school where you would typically go to get into the band hall. This meeting is required for parents of students who are in 1st band and any other students who would like to go on the trip. We will discuss itinerary, pricing, scholarship applications, chaperoning, and other topics.
Papa John's fundraiser
Many students have asked for more cards...that's AWESOME!! Keep in mind that money is due to the BLACK MAILBOX in the band hall by 9-11. When students turn in money, please make sure that their name is on the envelope or else we won't know who turned it in.
