This sale runs from Wednesday, October 2nd through Wednesday, October 23rd.  Candy pick-up will be on Thursday, November 21st from 5:00-6:00 pm in the high school cafeteria.

Student profit for this sale will depend on the total sales of the group.  The student profit range will be 25%-35% less the 10% profit for the BPO general fund. 

Again, this year for your out-of-town customers…they can order online and have it shipped directly to their house. Just visit www.sarriscandiesfundraising.com and enter 10-1251 as the Group ID#. Make sure they enter the student’s name, so the student gets credit for the sale. The customer pays online, so no need to worry about collecting money or making deliveries out of town. Please note, there is a shipping charge added to the order, and the profit is only 25% less the 10% for the BPO General Fund. Do not turn in online orders on your Master Sheet!

Both copies of the completed Master Sheet along with the full payment are due to Mr. Hopkins in a sealed envelope by Wednesday, October 23rd.  Checks are to be made payable to WHHSBPO with your student's name and “Sarris Candy” written on the memo line.

Next pick-up is this Thursday, October 17th in the cafeteria from 5-6 pm.

BAND TRIP

    WEEK OF AUGUST 12th Update:

    PARENT PREVIEW is on Tuesday August 20th Parent Preview @ the Wolvarena ALL STUDENTS SHOULD REPORT DIRECTLY TO THE WOLVARENA at 6:00 pm. Parent Preview will start at 7pm when football team is finished with their practice. There will be a Band Booster meeting directly before the Preview. It is extremely important that all parents attend this meeting!  😊


    New Volunteer Requests!  Our Marching Band and Images could also use 4-6 Parent Volunteers for Our Kennywood Day.  Our Vice President will also be reserving on of Kenny's, Kabana (near Noah's Ark in the center of the park) for people to stop by, leave items if needed, and meet up with other band families.  Watching the parade from the main cafeteria with the large wraparound porch is also a great place to see our students march!

    URGENT CALL for VOLUNTEERS to get trained and fill slots of the WHHSBPO Concession Stand!
    We are already having difficulty filling our Heinz Field Concession Stand and it is very possible that our Woody High stand could be in jeopardy.  This is often the easiest way to raise fast funds for your student’s trip (pay out is usually $90 and above per event).
    PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE get your training documents (RAMP is you are new, and the annual documents if you took it a year ago and it hasn’t expired).  Details are here:

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)
