WRHS Marching Band Information Guide and Policy Highlights
We are looking forward to a most successful and exciting marching season. A “COMMITMENT” on the part of each and every member in order to reach our goal of “excellence” is required. In order to make such a commitment, the following information highlights the participation and financial requirements for the upcoming season. We are glad to have you as a member of our WRHS Marching Band and look forward to working together to provide you with a most memorable and rewarding experience.
Rehearsals, Competitions and Performances
All rehearsals are REQUIRED in order for our teams to achieve their highest level of performance. ALL students MUST be ON TIME for EVERY practice!!! You are hurting the band when you are absent!
Participation in ALL competitions and performances are also REQUIRED! A detailed calendar will be given out during summer rehearsals. Date changes will be posted on the whiteboard in the band room as well as the band web-site. Please keep these dates open and watch the whiteboard and web-site for further updates. Bands perform. That’s what we do!
Modest funding is provided by the county to support our instrumental music program. Our booster organization has planned a number of fundraising activities to help cover a large portion of the investment in our students’ instrumental music education. However, student fees are needed to cover the remaining expenses associated with our program as well as trip costs.
To help defray some for the trip costs, the boosters have planned some incentive programs for selected fundraisers. Specific details related to such incentives will be provided for the designated fundraiser. Each family is expected to participate in fundraising efforts. In order to provide quality experiences and opportunities, participation in all fundraisers is required. Insurance
Houston County Schools requires each student to be covered by some form of medical insurance. Please refer to your school handbook for details of school insurance if you do not have medical insurance coverage. This information MUST be included on the Marching Band Registration form.
In keeping with our “Commitment to Excellence”, students will be expected to adhere to all Houston County School conduct policies as outlined in the Student Code of Conduct. Students who can not behave and represent Warner Robins High School with PRIDE, DIGNITY & CLASS should find another activity. Your behavior is more important than your performance. That being said, we want you to strive for perfection in performance. How important is your behavior if our expectations are that high for your performance?
We are glad to have you as a member of our WRHS Marching Band and look forward to working together to provide you with a most memorable and rewarding experience. For any questions pertaining to the above, please contact: Todd Howell via email. Physicals
The WRHS marching band requires that the parents of all participating students affirm that their child is healthy enough to participate in this activity. WRHS Band reserves the right to require individuals to have a physical on file prior to participation or continuation in the activity. The cost of this physical will be the responsibility of the parent of the participating student.
