The high school band will be performing at the WHS graduation ceremony on Sunday, June 1st. The ceremony will be held at the Wharton Center. Students in grades 9-11 will be taking a school bus to and from the event. Seniors should plan to meet us there, although they may ride the bus if needed.
Students should plan to wear nice dress clothes (school dress code applies). Please no jeans, shorts or tennis shoes. We will be sitting in front of the stage (very visible) during the entire ceremony, so please make every effort to look your best. This is a special day for WHS seniors and their families and therefore we should dress accordingly.
The schedule for the day is as follows:
3:30 pm: 9-11th grade band members report to the band room
3:45 pm: Bus departs for the Wharton Center
4:15 pm: Arrive at Wharton and set up
4:30 pm: Senior band members meet us at the Wharton Center to rehearse with the choir
6:00 pm: Ceremony begins
7:45-8:00 pm: Return to WHS
Senior band members are responsible to bring their instruments and music to and from the Wharton Center. Those using school owned instruments should plan to drop them off to WHS Monday, June 2nd through Friday, June 6th.
We will be returning to WHS immediately following the ceremony. Typically the ceremony lasts about 1 hour. I'm hoping that we will return by 7:45 or 8:00 pm. Students who do not want to ride the bus home should plan to fill out a transportation waiver.
