Home Show Help
I know the band board probably sounds like a broken record by now, but we really need help to make our home show a success. Rather than running a number of smaller fundraisers that take up a lot of everyone's time, this single day event has the capability of raising upwards of $15,000 to support the instrumental music department of Wisconsin Lutheran High School. This is only possible if you offer some of your time to help. If you have older children or family friends who could possibly help, please feel free to point them to the sign-up link as well. Let's fill up the volunteer roster!

Weekend Shows
The info sheets for this weekend went out last week and are available in hard copy form outside the band office. You can expect the next round of information regarding other upcoming performances later this week.

Student Sign-Out Procedures
As Mrs. Reinke mentioned, students who ride the bus to competitions must be signed out by a parent. If you give your permission for your child to ride home with another family, please send a note along to me. (signed by you or emailed) To sign out, please follow the band from the performance venue to the buses and check in with a chaperone while the students are packing everything up. After things are packed up, the next available time to sign students out is upon departure. (After the awards ceremony)

Instrument Transportation
New this year, all instruments will be transported on the trucks. Students will be given a number tag with the Wisco logo on it that must remain on their instrument case for the season. Then, each tag will be checked in just like roll call on the bus. If you are arriving separately (i.e. Waukesha shows) you are responsible for getting the instrument to and from the competition. That could mean that you bring your instrument with you, or make arrangements for it to be loaded at Wisco.
