From the President

Hope everyone had a great week!

One important note from the Wando Band--if you have video of the Wando Half Time Show, we have been asked not to post anything online. Pregame is okay….just not the show until after competitions. Thank you!

From the Directors

Great job by the 8th Grade Band Members at Wando Friday Night. The kids played really well and behaved even better!

Chair Test will be completed this week. Some chair test grades did not make it in by the Progress Report time due to the hurricane. Grades will be updated once auditions are completed.

Instructions for Smart Music have been sent. Please complete the activation instructions by Friday September 28th.


The Coupon Books have arrived so start getting those sales together. If you have any questions, please email
