Greetings Warren Band Students and Parents,
Here are some updates and reminders for the week of Sept 28, 2015 (please make sure you read all items so nothing is missed):
1) Warren Band Spiritwear Sale Mixup
During the recent WTHS Band Student/Parent Spiritwear sale (Delivered starting Friday - Sept 18) there was a mixup. One family ordered a men's jacket, but came forward because they received a women's jacket instead.
Per our vendor, it is likely that another band family ordered a women's jacket, but mistakenly received a men's jacket. Please check your orders to make sure you received the correct items.
If you mistakenly received a men's jacket from this order, please reply to this email as soon as possible so we can get the correct items to the appropriate families.
2) Tuesday Night Band Practice (Tonight! - Sept 29)
Time: 6 to 9 PM
Location: WTHS O'Plaine campus
