    We need a merchandise chairperson!!  Opportunity for parent to single-handedly or jointly with others to run merchandise sales:  to order, set-up and run the merchandise table for home football games, the home band competition and possibly other opportunities. This is a nice chance for raising money for the marching band, socializing with other parents, and volunteering outside the concession stand during the games and competition.  Please, contact Jennifer Chontos or any of the band officers if you have any interest in this position.  Thank you!

    *ServSafe and NPO Documents are required to be renewed by August 1, 2018, for returning volunteers. New volunteers are required to complete all paperwork and trainings before they volunteer for any event.

About the Band and Woodland Hills High School Band Parent Organization

The Woodland Hills Marching Band and Images Ensemble has approximately 175 members in grades 8 through 12. The band members are from the 11 communities that comprise the Woodland Hills School District. These students perform in many community events, including football game half-time shows, parades, marching band festivals, and a major biennial band trip. Band students also tend to be leaders within the high school.

 The Band is supported by the Woodland Hills High School Band Parent Organization (WHHSBPO), one of whose purposes it is to raise the necessary funds to cover all Marching Band expenses. The Organization also provides chaperones for the various events and orchestrates the fundraisers that enable the Band members to raise the necessary funds to cover their trip expenses.

The major biennial trips are both a great honor and challenge for our students. Because of the quality of our past performances and the character of our students, Woodland Hills High School Marching Band and Images Ensemble has been invited to participate in many large venues throughout the United States. They include:
  • Disney World, Orlando, FL (2018)
  • Gator Bowl, Jacksonville, FL (2015)
  • Fiesta Bowl, Phoenix, AZ (2013)
  • Disney World, Orlando, FL (2011)
