Badger Band Show - coming to South (New)
UW Varsity Band will be performing at Waukesha South in the field house on Sunday, February 8th from 1-3pm.  With the show just a month away, we are trying to get the word out to as many people as possible.  Here's the Show Poster we are hanging around town and encourage you to forward it, post it, or share it online with anyone you know who may be interested in attending.  These shows are truly a blast, and a great way to break up the winter blahs!   It’s a great show for those with energetic kids because attendees are welcomed and encouraged to sing and dance along with the music, so you can bring them to the show and let them wear themselves out!

Next week we will be sending a packet home with each band student.  Inside the packet will be a flyer for the show and four show tickets.  The goal is to encourage as many pre-show sales as possible so we can avoid a log jam of people buying tickets the day of the show.  Students are asked to sell the tickets and will be responsible for returning the money and/or any unsold tickets to the band safe by Monday, January 26th.  Additional tickets can be purchased at any of the home basketball games in January, or through the athletic office at South.  Additional tickets can also be purchased online using a credit card at (a small convenience fee applies to online purchases.)  All attendees, including students, will need to purchase a ticket unless they are working and/or performing the day of the show.

We are also hoping to have raffles the day of the show and are looking for donations of gift baskets, gift cards, or other items.  If you are willing to contribute a raffle item, or if you have any questions regarding the show, please contact Toni Ritchie at

We look forward to seeing you at the show!

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.
