Just a reminder that fruit and poinsettia pick up is tomorrow from 3:00 to 5:30 in the high school band room. You are welcome to drive around back to the band room door across from the elementary playground, I would just ask that you wait until AFTER the buses have cleared so you're not driving towards high schoolers trying to get out to the blacktop. Thanks so much and see you soon!

In the final process of finalizing a date for the Tigers Game performance and they are asking for a national anthem recording from this year. Does anyone have a recording of the HS band with or without 8th graders performing the Star Spangled Banner from either a football game or Bandorama they would be willing to share?
So proud of these 12 amazing Wildcat Musicians who worked 9 long hours on a challenging and wonderful program for the Lenawee County Honors Band this weekend! Congratulations on an amazing performance!
Amazing Job Tonight Onsted Bands! I am so proud of all of your hard work! From our youngest to our oldest, you all shined like a brand new penny! Please share those pictures and videos with me so I can post them here! Looking forward to our Holiday concert on Wednesday, December 20th at 7pm.
If you forgot to turn in fundraiser forms, the last day to do so is tomorrow. You CAN order fruit online for another week I believe. But I have to call the orders in for the paper forms over the weekend so please send everything in with your students before 3pm tomorrow.
Finally, any 8th-11th grader and parents of those students interested in heading to Disney/Universal next spring, please fill out the following form so I know how many to expect for pricing purposes.

Fruit and Poinsettia/Succulent Sale order forms went home this week. ONLY 2 WEEKENDS TO SELL! Orders are due November 2- The day of our Bandorama Concert featuring our 6th-12th grade band students! We do not have online ordering for our poinsettia/succulents but here is the online ordering site from our fruit company where you can select any band student to support. 50% of all PROFITS from this fundariser will go directly to the student seller! HS band will be heading to a performance trip to Disney and Universal in 2025 and in 2027 we will take on NYC again. It's never too early to adding money to that band account.
The other 50% of the profits will be used to start saving towards a bigger band trailer and new uniforms. Did you know that there are just as many students in our 6th grade beginning band as there is in our HS band right now. This means that In just three years we can be looking at about 90 in our band and who knows about the year after! This is an awesome problem to have but we simply don't have that many uniforms or space in our band trailer. We'd love your support to this and all our fundraisers to help us reach this goal! Thanks so much and Go Wildcats!
OnstedBand - Shopping Site As a member of the Onsted Band, our Middle School and High School students work very hard to raise the money it takes to make the Onsted Band program a great experience for our students at Onsted Community Schools.

WMB- Marching Festival Day is finally here! Don't forget to bring those long black socks to school! See you soon!
Attention Onsted Band Families:
Due to the windy and rainy weather conditions predicted for tomorrow, the MSBOA directors and officials have made the difficult decision to move High School Marching Band Festival to TUESDAY, OCTOBER 17th. Our performance time is 7:30 PM and will still be at Jackson NW HS. We should be home around 10pm. I apologize for the late night on a school night. We had to work around a lot of schedule conflicts to make this happen.
Students will stay at OHS after school for dinner, then we will get dressed in uniform and head outside for a final run through of our show with EVERYONE present. Then, we will load the trailer and pull out at 5:30 PM.
We will arrive at NW Mountie Stadium around 6:20 to unload and warm up at 6:50pm. Parents will want to be in the stands by 7:20 at the latest. Admission is $5 and they only take cash. They are also having a bake sale and sell "shout-out" for your favorite marcher.
Students-you may bring money for concessions and/or snacks. Water bottles will be passed out after the performance. You may also want to bring blankets, rain coats, etc. for when we are sitting in the bleachers. We will see three bands perform after we load our trailer. The plan is to leave Jackson at 9:15pm.
Please check you emails for more important details about transportation and please consider signing up for our Pre-Festival dinner using the sign up genius linked below.
Your students have been working so hard and I am so excited for you to see and hear their progress! Looking forward to an outstanding performance. Have a restful weekend and see you Monday!

Wildcat Marching Band Senior Night/8th grade Marcher Night 2023
I am so incredibly proud of all of our WMB members! I wasn't able to get pics of our 8th graders, please post them on here if you'd like to share! Congratulations on an amazing performance tonight despite the wet weather! Way to show some serious grit and can we just talk about how much fun, fellowship, and bonding went on between our 8th graders being in awe of their HS counterparts, and our WMB shedding many tears over the last time these 12 amazing seniors will march under the Friday Night Lights as a high school student! It has been an absolute pleasure to guide these seniors through the past 2 1/2 years of high school and I look forward to helping them finish strong making this year the best one yet! Congratulations WMB Class of 2024!
So incredibly proud of our Wildcat Marching Band this evening. They absolutely rocked it at the Lenawee County Marching Festival.

EMU Band Day 2023
We have had a fantastic time! I took lots of pics and video so phone died! Just now had enough charge to message but we are about 25 minutes away.
ETA is 7:40pm. Students will need to help unload trailer and clean up the bus but if everyone lends a hand, it should go quickly!
Good evening Wildcat Band Families, students are now ready to be picked up from the game. We left after halftime and loaded the trailer for EMU tomorrow.
PLEASE REMEMBER to wash your show shirt tonight so you can wear it tomorrow for EMU. Please arrive wearing that tomorrow, with a hoodie or jacket if needed and tennis shoes. Also don't forget to wear clean long black socks so you have them for your uniform tomorrow morning. :)
Great job tonight and see you in a few hours!!! :) Donuts will be waiting!
Good evening Wildcat marching band families!
Due to a wide variety of factors, we are going to send the students home after halftime tonight.
We are about 2 minutes out from our performance and the kids are mentally and physically exhausted from a really long week with some injuries with our athletes. It's just in their best interest that they got some good sleep before our 6:45 a.m. report time tomorrow for EMU band day.
We still have to load the trailer and pack uniforms for tomorrow morning before they leave. So I anticipate students being ready for pickup around 8:45 p.m.
Please let me know if you are unable to pick them up early or if they're allowed to go back in the game afterwards to cheer on our team to victory. We wish our Wildcat FB the best as they fight hard against Dundee!
See you soon!
Wildcat Marching Band- it's Game Day! Please check your email from yesterday for details! Report time today is 4:00pm. HS Picture Day this morning first thing on stage. Bring a hoodie this morning...it's brisk and we are going outside to finish up drill! See you soon!
Game day! No changes from the band calendar for today. We will rehearse at 4 pm, eat around 5:30(pizza), and then pregame begins around 6:45pm.
I could use a volunteer to pick up pizzas from Little Caesars in Adrian at 5pm. It will already be paid for. Please message or email if you can help.
No uniforms tonight. Blue jeans or capris, ( jean shorts are fine too though it will get cool later) with our purple show shirt and tennis shoes. If you did not attend camp, please send in $15 with your student to pay for the shirt. Shirts are still available for family and friends for $15. I will have them in the stands tonight.
See you all soon!
Happy Friday WMB! Hope you are all safe and dry from last night's storm. Looks like next Thursday's game is still on!!! I'll email a more detailed post when I get my internet back but just wanted you to plan for this now. Take care and have a fantastic weekend! I can't wait to get this amazing year started!
Good morning Wildcat Marching Band Families. With the forecasted heat index and severe weather this evening, the soccer game was cancelled so we will not be performing the national anthem at this evenings rehearsal. However, I am going to keep tonight's rehearsal from 5:30 and end it at 8pm. This will give us time to reset the HS Band Room from camp, finish the uniform fittings, try on shoes and raincoats, assign band lockers, as well as work on our show music and stand tunes. We plan to be mainly inside. IF, the weather and heat breaks, we may go outside for a bit at the end of rehearsal to review the opener we learned at camp. Please bring a clearly labeled water bottle, shoes for marching and some bug spray just in case we are able to go outside. AGain, I will not take students out if there is impending severe weather and/or the heat doesn't subside. We will stay inside in the air conditioning.
Thanks so much and look forward to seeing you tonight!
Just a reminder that due to conflicts of many of our marching band families, we are not marching in the Onsted Festival Parade tomorrow. Hope to do it next year!
Also, don't forget to be at the HS at 4pm on Tuesday to play at the pavilion for back to school night. Dinner will be provided at the picnic. After we perform around 4:45pm, we will eat and then allow our students to go in for open house around 5:30pm. Students can leave their instruments at the school afterwards in a band locker so they will be there for our first evening rehearsal on Thursday, August 24th from 6-9pm.
Sooo excited to see everyone again soon!
