UPCOMING EVENTS TO PUT ON YOUR RADAR:
A WORD FROM MR. LESANDO AND MISS BOCK
Good Afternoon band families,
This time of year can be stressful for students. While they are doing some awesome things and building experiences that will last a long time, the work piles up and the energy gets low. Please remind your students that if they need help with ANYTHING (academically, socially, or other), please have them reach out to us or their friends. The band program at SW has a lot of students with varying skills, talents, and strengths – this diversity can really help students who are having some difficulties with classes or balancing activities. We are here to help your students be successful in any way we can and that includes all the non-band stuff as well. I hope you all enjoyed the show this last weekend and we appreciate the support you give them to make this show come alive! See you at UCM!
Mr. Lesando and Ms. Bock

The props are done and we are ready to go! If you plan on being at the show, please stop by the Hospitality Tent and let us know if you can help move props and equipment to the field. It will be an "all-hands-on-deck" event as we get used to what all needs to be done.
We need lots of hands to make marching competitions successful. Here are just a few links you can go to help out! All competitions are included so if you can’t attend one, select the one or several you can attend. We have 120 band members. We need to have volunteer participation from everyone!
