Presently, the West High School Band is in the process of seeking sponsorships to help fund important educational opportunities for West HS Band Students, like music clinicians, fees for music festivals, providing supplemental instruction for the marching band, student leadership training, providing music and choreography for our students, and offset the cost of our semi-trailer expenses. We want to invite organizations and individuals to consider becoming a two-year sponsor with a few options of sponsorship levels to consider.
You can find the details on how to get involved in the attached document below. Please help us spread the word and point others to this opportunity!
Below is a link to the Band Materials registration form (please don't fill this form out until the Aug 10-11 registration nights so we can answer questions if you have them during the process).
Woodwind and Brass students will pay a Band Materials registration fee of $30, and Percussion students will pay a Band Registration Fee of $50 (higher due to marching sticks/mallets needed for the season). In this form, students can also purchase marching shoes, gloves, mark their instrument rental needs/fees (for marching band, concert band, jazz band), and family members will have the opportunity to order additional band shirts. Please contact a Band Director if you have a question in this process.
Link for Registration (will be added closer to registration date)
