A Reminder of Who We Are

Hi folks -

It is a game night, and the band plays. If you are part of the band program, the expectation is that you are here, performing. Because we have an obligation, and we fulfill our obligations. 

That is who we are.

In case you haven't heard, the District has canceled ALL school activities for the weekend, which includes the NWAPA Percussion Premiere. Sadness. But on a positive note, this will give us the opportunity to work more on the show before we present it to the public, which will be at the St Helen's show on February 23. Happiness!

Also, the basketball game tonight (Friday February 8) has been moved to earlier in the evening, so that the girls can get their contest in before the bad weather hits. Call time is 5pm and the game begins at 5:30.

Stay safe in the snow!

Winter Drumline Schedule Change for Monday 2/4

Hear ye, hear ye!

The weather forecasters are warning of potential icy roads this evening, which is of concern for WDL staff who drive from Vancouver and Monmouth. To keep them safe, we will shift our rehearsal tonight to a 2-hour block of sectionals, which will be supervised by McKee. The room will be open from 4-6pm, at which time students will be expected to go home, to avoid possible icy conditions. (Weather Service statement reprinted below)

Remember, the Percussion Premiere is this Saturday, so this will put us behind. Please, practice your part!

Temperatures will fall below freezing shortly after sunset for most areas across the region this evening. Any moisture left on untreated surfaces will likely refreeze tonight making for treacherous driving and walking conditions. Temperatures will remain below freezing through Tuesday's morning commute.

Additionally for the I-5 corridor mainly north of Albany, very light snow may accumulate primarily during the evening commute hours. Snow amounts will most likely be 1 inch or less, however, the commute timing could be especially problematic.
