DUE FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 8th

"Roadie" Information

We are always looking for student volunteers from Freshmen Band to attend any of our performances to help with equipment.


This is a great opportunity for students to see what Band will be like once they are Sophomores as well as earn points towards their *Varsity Band Letter.


Here are upcoming events that we are looking for Roadies-


September 8th, 2016 5:30pm Report, Football Game

September 22nd, 2017 5:30pm Report, Football Game @ Hart Park

September 23rd, 2017 Waukesha South “Marchfest” Competition

September 30th, 2017 Greendale High School Competition

October 14th, 2017 State Marching Band @ UW Whitewater


-*Varsity Band Letters are earned by accumulating points. Students receive points for every performance they attend as well as points for volunteering to help the band. Each performance is 50 points, and each additional volunteer opportunity is 25. Students also eared points if they were in attendance for Freshmen Band Camp and if they participate in Jazz II or III. More information regarding Band Points will be shared with students at a later time.
