Volunteer Needed for Uniform Fitting

The AWBB Uniform Fitting is coming up on Tuesday, August 11 and Wednesday, August 12 from 11 am – 5 pm each day.

This is a week later than we have traditionally done it.  We think this will be better for the students, since they won’t be practicing those mornings.

We are looking for volunteers to help with this.  We are in need of both parent AND student volunteers.  Each person can help out either the whole time, or for just part of the time.

It is interesting and rewarding to be a part of outfitting our large group of Generals!  It’s a great opportunity for parents to see how everything comes together.  Anyone who would like to volunteer please contact Renee McNutt, Uniform Chairman.

HS Band Packet, 2015-16

I hope everyone is having a great summer.  

Attached is the 2015-16 band packet (PDF).  

It includes the handbook, handbook confirmation form, and the calendar.  Please read through the handbook and return the confirmation form at band camp.  

This year we have set up a Google form to fill out for upcoming absences (now you do not need to turn in a written note or send an email – just go to the following link and submit the form). 

We look forward to seeing any new students, Freshmen, and Seniors on Thursday, July 30th at 9am and everyone July 30th at 6pm.

Band Letter Jacket Try-ons

Try on for size and order a band letter jacket in the band room after practice on Monday, October 15th at 5:00 PM.  The deadline to order is October 19th.  The cost of each jacket is $164 plus tax.  All embroidery is included in the base price.  Larger sizes (XXL and larger) and other services such as sewing on letters, additional embroider, etc. will be available at additional cost.

A 50% down-payment ($82) is required at the time of ordering.  Cash will be accepted or make checks payable to Tom F. Williams.  If you have any questions, please contact the Uniform chair, attention to Joann Schmidt.

Marching Uniform fitting reminder


Uniform try-ons are noon to 5:30, Tuesday the 7th and Wednesday the 8th in the band room.

All students must come to try-on their uniform, and bring their tote with accessories in it (including spats).

Uniform fees will be due that day, as well as those that pay instrument rental fees.  Freshman will also be fitted for concert wear.

Per Mr. Young, other than woodwinds, there won’t be a need to cut gloves this year, so many may want to purchase new ones.

LASTLY:  if anyone (students included) would like to help out during these times, please contact Kara Olligschlager.
