The 2015-16 Calendar was UPDATED on 5/21/15 (click above)

Greetings Blackshirt Band Parents!
In addition to its own fundraisers, the South band program receives funds each year from the Waukesha South Booster club.  To be eligible for these funds, the band students and their families need to help us with two things:  (1) encourage all parents to support the boosters by purchasing a booster pass.  This gives discounted admissions to Waukesha South sporting events, and 100% of all proceeds go to South rather than being spread across the district.  If you are coming to watch the band perform, this will save you money!  (2) We are required to supply volunteers throughout the year to assist the boosters with fundraising. 

We have already been assigned a few events for this year.  The booster club has begun using Sign up Genius for these events.  The sign ups are available at   We have a reference sheet that explains how the new sign up process works (Click Here!).   If indicated, high school aged students are able to sign up for the slots as well.  Below are the events in the next month, but you are welcome to sign up for any event that is listed as a “Band” event.

Tues. August 18th:  Booster table at registration (help sell booster passes)
9:30 a.m. – 11:45 a.m. two adults needed
11:45 a.m.  – 1:45 p.m. two adults needed

Thurs, August 20th: Selling South Spiritwear at registration
6:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.  4 volunteers needed, up to two of them can be students

Friday, August 21st: Football concessions (NOTE: the band does NOT perform at this game)
6:00 – 7:45 p.m. – 10 volunteers needed (2 grillers, 8 in the stand) up to 4 can be students
7:45 – 9:15 p.m. – 10 volunteers needed (2 grillers, 8 in the stand) up to 4 can be students

If you are not comfortable using the online sign up but would like to help, please contact me at  Thank you in advance for your help and support of the South Band Program!

Text Message Reminders
Students, here's another way to stay connected if you do not have twitter or prefer SMS messages. This is a one way text service that does not show your number or Mr Hacker's number.  His updates and tweets will also be sent to this service. Information to set this up is HERE.


It was great to see so many of you at South's "Back to School Night" tonight.   One topic we talked about was a new software program called, Charms, that your students, and I, and you will use to help us stay current and will help us manage the many details associated with the band programs.  An informational sheet about Charms is HERE (click to download).  This is your Charms Office login information for Florida trip fundraising accounts and other band information. Please explore this site and update your profile.

Click HERE and follow the directions to register your email account with Waukesha South's Band Programs -- all Band Programs and Band Classes use this web site and this email registration to help keep you informed!  We will post information and news items here on this web site, and from time to time, we may need to email you (Students and Parents), but unless you Subscribe, we can't do that.

Support the 'All School Boosters' 
The more we support the All School Boosters, the better chance we have of band funding. We need at least 50% membership of band parents. Become a member by purchasing an activity pass. A Booster Club sign-up sheet was included the South Spotlight for back-to-school. The All School Boosters will also have a table at registration, Southfest and the first few football games. By joining you are getting discounted access to most of South’s sporting events, as well as an opportunity to qualify for a senior scholarship for your student.
