Welcome to the Home of the Bands of Veterans!

As one of the finest bands in middle Georgia, the Veterans Instrumental Music Department serves over 200 talented high school musicians. Located in Kathleen, Georgia the band program consists of three concert bands, percussion ensembles, jazz band, flute ensembles and the award winning Warhawk Squadron. 

 

We have a dedicated staff that guides and encourages our amazing students both during and after school. Our expectations are high, and our students and staff always rise to the occasion. Our supportive parent community and the Veterans Band Boosters help raise funds that support our efforts, making it possible for us to continue to provide an excellent band experience for all.  Our students truly exemplify the Veterans High School Motto, "Excellence is the Standard, not the Goal."

Important Links

Below is information regarding online instruction for the fall semester as I understand them. Please keep the following in mind:

  • You will not be able to be in marching band or concert band if you choose to attend virtual school in the fall. That is a decision outlined by the Houston County Board of Education.

  • Once you make a decision, you must stick with that decision for the entire semester.

 

IMPORTANT: If you signed up for marching band and are choosing the online school option, please let me know immediately so necessary adjustments can be made.

 

Marching Band students, be on the lookout for more information concerning band camp in the next couple of days. It is my hope to see all of you very soon. Information concerning 2020-2021 HCBE Learning Options: CLICK HERE
