Urgent Wind Ensemble News...Male Chaperones Still Needed!
The Wind Ensemble is fortunate to be nationally-known and invited to attend prestigious events.  Our attendance at these events is made possible with the support of parents and guardians who volunteer their time to travel with the band to keep our musicians safe and in compliance with strict District guidelines.  As of today, we do not have enough male chaperones to attend either the WMEA Conference in Yakima, or the Whistler Festival.  Can YOU help fill the specific needs below?

Yakima:  4 Male Chaperones -or- 2 Male Chaperones and 1 Married Couple (No Cost to attend)

Whistler: 2 Male Chaperones -or- 1 Married Couple ($450 / Person to attend)

In addition, there are a large number of WE members who are behind on Whistler payments.  Every student - whether you received a scholarship or not - must make a payment immediately to ensure your participation on this trip.  Payments may be made through ASB student fundraising accounts, check made payable to BPA or online Here.
