Uniform Fittings: We will be fitting students for their Marching Band Uniforms during the second week of Entertainment Unit Camp (from Aug 24- Aug 27).  On the day of your fitting, please wear soccer/basketball type shorts. You will be wearing them under your uniform for your fitting and throughout the season, so please no jeans or bulky shorts.  You will be taking your uniform home after your fitting. 

Sign up for one of the days designated for your class level (Aug 24, 25 for Seniors, Juniors and Council members; Aug 26, 27 for Sophomores and Freshmen).  Fittings are scheduled every 1/2 hour starting at 3:30pm until the last appointment at 6:30pm.

You MUST sign up for a time slot by Monday August 17th to be fit for a uniform – NO walk-in fittings will be done. We’re using VolunteerSpot for Marching Uniform Fitting Sign-ups.  Here’s how it works:

If you are the parent of a new or existing WHEU student, there are a LOT of questions you will have about the Unit and how it works. Most of those questions can be answered by downloading the latest New Parent Information Document 2015 that provides a great overview of WHEU and all pertinent information you need to know. This document is also great for existing WHEU parents as a refresher. As they say, It Takes A Village – and never more true than for supporting the West High School Entertainment Unit all year long.
