A reminder that All West auditions will be held this Saturday at Northside HS, 3066 N Highland Ave, Jackson, TN 38305. Times are posted on the WTSBOA website. Plan to arrive 30 minutes early if possible to avoid traffic issues and line congestion at the school. All participants need to be in place 10 minutes before their assigned time so they are cleared to enter their given hallway. Results will be shared once they have been processed in school the next week.
Good news, everyone! After speaking to a couple of different vendors, we have settled on a final option for the jackets that students had requested. Please follow this link to order today!
Final orders must be placed by EOB November 25, 2019!
They take both PayPal AND Credit Cards too!
We are at Houston High School versus Houston (10-0) for our second round playoff game. Temperatures are supposed to be cold again (High 52, Low 32) so plan accordingly. Full uniform needs to be worn again for this game. Have a great Veteran’s Day break.
Written Scale/key signature test coming up in your clef next Wednesday.
This is a reminder to those that may not have had it shared via their child, or have not checked the calendar recently, but this Tuesday night, we will be having our first concert of the year. This will include all the bands. We will start at 6:30 in the auditorium with a brief meeting before starting at 6pm. We look forward to having everyone there and allowing us to share what we have been working on so far.
We have a couple of updates pertaining to Band uniform orders:
The concert shirts and various other items not yet delivered with the initial order will be picked up and delivered to the school today. The students can collect them after school.
The additional orders placed with Champion after the initial order will ship and should be delivered before the end of September ensuring that students will have concert shirts in time for the Fall concert on October 1st.
Unfortunately, in order to achieve this the cutoff for ordering has been moved up to September 13th. This is the only way to ensure a timely delivery for everyone’s order. In addition, if for some reason you don’t immediately see the Adult sizes on the website be sure to click the size link and scroll down to find them. Thank you for your understanding and Go Spartans!
The ordering site can be found here.
Welcome to all parents to our monthly Band Booster meeting. We will be meeting in the band room from 6-7pm to discuss the following and more: Fundraising for band fees, and the band trip; Football games, concerts and chaperone/parent aid; parental involvement for upcoming events; formal uniform relabeling and distribution, and more. Please stop in to see what we have on the horizon and how you may help us make a difference for band students. We look forward to seeing everyone there.

This is a reminder that the band will be hosting a preview of its upcoming show this year – our salute to Memphis Music. The band will rehearse from 3-5:30, have the chance to either eat, take a break and then perform for all family and friends that would like to attend. Drinks will be provided (water, lemonade, tea/lemonade mix), and a signup genius will be created soon for those wishing to contribute food to the event. This is voluntary and those not bringing food for the group will likely want to bring food for themselves and their children. We look forward to seeing everyone there. The band sounds and look great and are looking forward to showing off the work they have done so far!
