Welcome to Whalertown!

Dear Whalers,

This is a big weekend with two performances coming up on our home turf.  The first is our football game on Friday night against Barnstable. We always remember that school and community service is part of our mission in the band, but this week we can also use the football game as a tune-up for Home Comp on Saturday.  A solid performance on the field and in the stands can set the stage for a more successful competition on Saturday.  We have plenty of reasons to be excellent with our playing, marching, and cheering this Friday night.

Saturday is Home Comp, and only our best will do.  With a few hundred admiring eighth-graders watching, and a few hundred more and friends in the audience, we should really strive to put on a great show.  25 years ago the New Bedford Band played their Les Mis show, and earned rave review from judges and audiences.  Let's work toward that goal, and fulfill the tradition of excellence built by the thousands of Whaler Marching Band members that have come before you in the last sixty years.

Students-- The staff and I are proud of your hard work so far this year, and we are looking forward to seeing just how good you can be this Saturday.  Go Whalers!

Your weekly sheet is attached at the bottom of this email and can also be accessed here in the Announcements section at  

As always, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.  Let's do our best, and make this a great week to be a whaler! 

Yours in music,
Mr. Eric Drew
