IT’S CONTEST TIME!!!! GO RAM BAND!!!!
Hello students and parents. Please note that we are closing in on a very exciting part of the school year…MARCHING CONTEST SEASON!! The Waltrip Ram Band has a long standing tradition of being very active and successful in many local, regional and state marching contests. We will continue the tradition this year as we embark on competing at the Lamar Consolidated ISD Invitational Marching Contest, the 40th Annual Blinn College Buccaneer Marching Festival, the Katy ISD Invitational Marching Festival, the Houston ISD Marching Contest, the Region 23 U.I.L. Marching Band Contest and the Waller ISD Marching Festival. This schedule of events, which is located under the calendar tab, is mixed within our Varsity Football Game Schedule. It is a very educational and rewarding experience for our band students. They are critiqued by some of the finest educators and adjudicators from across the state. Parents, I hope you can continue to support your student by having them attend all music rehearsals and performances. We NEED EVERYONE at ALL SCHEDULED EVENTS. The entire band depends on each other to be there as needed. If you have any questions or conflicts, please do not hesitate to contact Mr. Espinosa, Mr. Mosley or Mr. Loredo. Thank you for your support and GO RAM BAND!!!!
