7:00 Football Game (marching band performs in pre-game & at halftime)
After halftime, we invite all Viking Marching Band members to stay & be part of the “pep band” to play during the 2nd half. It’s a lot of fun! If you do not stay, please report to band room to clean up following halftime and then you are excused.
New families, as an FYI: If you are planning on attending any home or away football games this season, you will need to purchase tickets at the gate (You can also purchase a season athletic pass through the district on Skyward Family Access good at WL athletic events).
Band members should bring their complete uniforms with them to school on game day. Shorts and the white band t-shirt are worn under the uniform. Parents: Please help your child be responsible for getting their uniform (jacket, bibbers, gauntlets, hat, black socks and marching shoes) to practice that day. We have no replacement items if something is forgotten. Guard section will be in all opaque form-fitting black with neat, low pony until uniforms arrive.
