How Creative Are You?!?

Are you creative? Put your thinking caps on and let your imagination run wild, because THS Marching Band and Color Guard has the opportunity to create and star in the Landmark Ford commercial that will introduce the new Ford Fiesta - wow! And the timeline is short - we'll be filming next Thursday evening August 19 - so we'll need to work quickly. Think about "Fiesta!" and how we could portray a great party (McKee and Irving are thinking about the song "Celebration!" - what do YOU think?) So check out McKee's Band Page! for all the particulars, and let's start working!

Hi WDL and WG Folks!

It's time to pay winter program fees, so that we can pay our terrific instructors and our entry fees to the competitions we'll be attending. And the good news is that the individual fee this year will be $300 - what a deal!

Fees may be paid by check made out to THS Band Boosters, or transfers from Student Accounts may be requested, providing there are sufficient funds to cover the amount requested.
Please place checks in envelopes and put both checks and transfer requests in the Black Box - you know where it is! :)

Let's plan to have 1/2 of the fee amount paid by January 29. The entire amount should be paid in full by February 26, so that our obligations can be met. And as usual, if anyone needs an adjustment to this schedule, please email McKee and we'll tal
