WHEU Picture Day is Coming

Casa Ricardo will return to West on Friday, October 24th (WHS Homecoming) to photograph WHEU (Band, Visual Performers, Varsity DT) as well as take individual photos as requested.  The order form for their products is attached.  All orders are payable to CASA Ricardo’s Photography and submitted to company staff on photo day.  Families may choose to order individual student portraits or only the WHEU group photo (see Additional Team or Squad Pictures section on order form).  The most economical option is an unframed 8×10 group photo ($17) or unframed 16×20 ($31).  Students purchasing either a group photo or package are also eligible for buddy tickets ($5 each for each friend in a group photo with the student).  This is a great way for friends to share a photo.  Each person in the buddy photo receives 1 5×7 and 4 wallets. You can download the  Group Photo Form here.

Alternate Band Uniform T-Shirt

A required part of the band uniform is the long-sleeved brown t-shirt worn under the uniform jacket.  While nice to wear on cool nights, these shirts can be uncomfortable in the hot weather.  This year, band students may choose to purchase a short-sleeved white T-shirt with WHEU logo to wear instead of the brown shirt.  A sample of this shirt is hanging in the band room.  The cost of this shirt is $10.

A WHEUPA volunteer will be in the band room on Monday nights, Oct. 20, and 27th, prior to and at the end of practice, to sell these T-shirts.  Supplies are limited and will be sold on first-come, first served basis.  Cash or check, payable to WHEUPA, are accepted.  Exact change is greatly appreciated.
