SMB: Pictures 10/9

Hello Marching Band and Color Guard parents!
I am super excited for our upcoming photo day fundraiser on October 9th. We all had a blast last year, produced some very fun images and raised nearly $700 for SHS Band Boosters!
Ordering details:
Photo orders are due on picture day. Cash and checks are accepted with the printed out order form (see attached). Credit card orders can be made at  If you are purchasing online, you do not need to print out the confirmation. If you received a confirmation, so did I – so please save a tree :)
Pre-ordered prints will be handed out by Mr. Stai approximately 3 weeks after picture day with no shipping fee. After those are delivered, I will create a web gallery of the images. You will be able to order directly through the website at that time but note there will be a shipping fee as those will go directly to your desired address.
Thanks so much,
Angie Windheim Photography
P.S.  Students, call time is 7:30am.  Those with long hair, please come with your hair fixed appropriately.  Plan to get right into your uniform and head to the stadium with your section.  Practice will begin after portraits, at 10:00am.

SMB Video?

Is there a video that someone took of Saturday’s performance that could be sent my way this morning? With the departure of the Duncan’s & Crawfords from our band ranks, I no longer have someone handing me a video card of our performance every time we perform. Thank you!

Jazz Band – Band Classes – Marching Band – Stai’s Update

Mr. Stai is sick… as you all saw today, so here is the plan for Friday:

  • No Jazz Band in the morning.
  • Band Classes – I will be gone during all band classes tomorrow so come to class prepared to choose your own adventure (practice allstate material, playing proficiencies, wind technique book, marching band music, etc.). Be productive, don’t waste time.
  • Marching Band – Mr. Stai will be resting up all day in order to be at Friday’s 5pm-9pm marching band rehearsal. We have a lot to do to prepare for our big day on Saturday. See you there!
