New marching band uniforms are here! We will continue fitting students this upcoming week and will premiere the uniforms at Friday, Oct. 4th’s Football Game! Very excited for this as it has been 11 years in the making (19 seasons for the old ones)!
Be aware that there are lots of upcoming events including three back to back trips, please see the info below and be reminded that you can always reference this info later on at our blog: https://kwhsband.wordpress.com
Parents, all volunteer needs have been added to Charms through December 2019, be sure of the event/date that you are signing up for.
*Daily Volunteer needs (we always need help!) just be cleared through https://visa.keysschools.com/ and check in through the front office. Here is a list of needs/directions that will be updated once things are completed (not charms): https://docs.google.com/document/d/148SdKgzOjmMlWuJed8iyOYIoR3_kmR8fP5T5tfugwCw/edit?usp=sharing

*Home Football game: Report to the Poinciana elementary cafeteria by 5:45pm, attendance (inspection) taken at 6:00pm in full uniform. All Band Members will wear their PINK Show Shirt, Grey shorts and BLACK marching shoes with LONG BLACK socks (exception: Colorguard wear your black dance shoes + formal uniforms). Please bring your band bag and your red water bottle which you will use in the stands. Have all of your music and your functioning instrument. NO EATING in the New Uniforms or in the Stands, this includes beverages other than Water, students will now remove their jackets after halftime for their break. Parents, please be aware that there is no set time for football games to end and transportation should be coordinated through cell/text messaging upon the conclusion of the game-this gives you about 30min lead time on pick up after students change cloths and pack up. The start time for this is 7:00pm and the band performs the National Anthem/Pregame at around 6:45pm. Parents, we need many volunteers for every game. Our volunteer needs are posted on Charms (database that helps us organize everything), please sign up via this link (changes each game): Be sure to complete your Volunteer Application with the district annually at: https://visa.keysschools.com/ Each event will have a sign up via a hyperlink, this week’s game: https://www.charmsoffice.com/charms/volunteerR.asp?s=KyWstHSB&v=5001103
