Running a group this size (generally between 130 and 200 members), takes a lot of hard work from everyone: members, directors, instructors, staff, etc. The WLC Viking Marching Band has much to be proud of, on and off the field. We are so proud of our involved and active parents, who make this possible.
Parents' roles and responsibilites...in order to support your child(ren):
1. STAY INFORMED -read the weekly Band Buzz / all important info is shared via email in this weekly newsletter! -attend monthly meetings / 7:00 pm second Wednesday of each month in the WLC media center (unless otherwise noted) / generally under 1 hour. -refer often to the band calendar posted on CutTime and regularly updated. -ask questions! please don't hesitate to contact a board member if you have any questions: http://www.wlcbands.com/band-boosters.html -check the website for updates, information, forms, photos, etc.
2. GET INVOLVED Remember why we're all here...we love our kids and want them to have the best possible experience. All board members, chairpersons, etc are volunteers and are not perfect, just passionate! It takes everyone to make this team work! -join a committee! There is something for everyone...we hold a "Volunteer Fair" in the spring & it's a great time to see where you can jump in! -help with a one-time event or fundraiser / these are updated throughout the season on CutTime. -just show up...we'll find something fun for you to do!
3. MEET DEADLINES Throughout the season, you will have opportunities to order certain items (spirit wear, show shirts, DVD's, patches, photos, etc). By turning in orders and payments on time, you are modeling responsibility to your child and also saving the volunteers the hassle of tracking you down...thank you! -make payments on time / these are listed in the registration packet and on our website at http://www.wlcbands.com/pay-your-bill-online.html -turn in all forms / orders on time.
4. BE PREPARED Our kids work hard on the field, and it's our responsibility to support them off the field. We can do this by helping to: -make sure they arrive at and are picked up from rehearsals on time. -make sure they have everything they need. -Details on competition days can be found at The Big Day. -make sure their uniform is complete & clean and that the bibbers (pants) are properly hemmed for every performance / competition. Details on uniform care can be found at Looking Good.
