BAND COSTUME

This will be our 3rd consecutive year wearing a costume rather than our traditional band uniform. It was estimated that the cost would be $70 per student. Unfortunately the cost came back higher than we predicted. Because of this we are asking that each student donate $10 to help pay for the increase in price. Students will be trying on their costumes in July. Below are two pictures of the costume. The reason for the increase in cost is becuase there will be a "magic trick" where students remove part of their costume to reveal a new color during the show.

WARREN BAND to perform National Anthem at Angels Baseball Game

Warren HS along with 9 other high schools have been invited to play the national anthem prior to the start of the Angels vs. Blue Jays MLB baseball game on Saturday September 17th. Here is what we know so far:

1​. Only 60 students will get to participate. A list was created on July 21st and will be finalized on July 28th 

2. Every student that participates has to commit to selling 4 tickets each

3. Tickets are $20 each. Seat location is: Lower View All Star (section 428-429) or (408-409). http://mlb.mlb.com/ana/ticketing/seating.jsp

4. This will also oparate as a fundraiser, for every ticket we sell we will earn $6 back. So the more we sell, the more funds we raise.

5. Rides to and from the game have yet to be determined, but most likely students will need to provide their own ride to and from.

 

Below is the flyer being used to sell the game tickets. All tickets must be sold and paid in full by August 19th!!!
