From Mr. Clemente

Dear Winter Park Band families,


A big kudos and congratulations to the SOTW for their performance all evening at Middle School Night this past Friday. Through all of the unique aspects of that night and that performance, our students carried themselves maturely, performed very well both in the stands and on the field at both pregame and halftime, and most importantly were ambassadors of the Winter Park Band for our future students! Mr. Sullivan, Mr. Brannock, Mr. Munera, and Mr. Mendez all were very complimentary of the students, and were proud to see their former students being successful!


Congratulations as well to all of our students who auditioned for this year's All-State ensembles at Ocoee HS on Saturday, 9/15. Best of luck!


Please keep your eyes looking ahead on the Band calendar to be sure all Band events are on your family's calendar. As explained in the Band Handbook and on the Band Handbook Acknowledgement Form, attendance is expected at all Band events throughout the school year. Please Especially take note of the upcoming dates here and later in the newsletter:


  • September 28 - Fall Marching Band Mini-Camp, 9 AM - 5 PM
  • October 2 - Homecoming Parade and "Roar," 4:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Keep up the great work and positive attitude!

BAND BOOSTER PRESIDENT MESSAGE

Week of September 15, 2019

Thank you to ALL of the volunteers who made middle school night possible--chaperoning, making sure the equipment, water, and other needs were taken care of, handing out middle school t-shirts, and so much more. There were lots of middle school students, and despite the rain, it seemed like they had a great time!


Looking forward:

· We need additional volunteers for this week’s game (away) and all other other remaining games (there are only 6 remaining regular season games, so please consider volunteering for at least 1).


·For Homecoming week (week of September 30), we will need volunteers for the parade, the game, and to bring desserts for the reception after the concert (which will involve band alumni as well).


Please stay tuned for more details.

Have a great week.
