Spring Concert was a Great Success-
The WHS Bands had a fantastic performance in their Spring Concert on Tuesday May 22nd. Students performed some audience favorites like Take on Me, The Incredibles, and Stars and Stripes Forever. The students also paid respects for the loss of Roo Band member Kaylee Montgomery by placing flowers in her spot for the concert. She will be greatly missed and our hearts go out to all those effected by her passing.
Directors would like to thank the students for a job well done this year, and wish the seniors success in their plans after HS. The Band Directors would also like to show gratitude for the Parents and Boosters for their continued support of the Roo Bands program as well as a final acknowledgement for the Administration for all their assistance and support of our program this year.
