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."

WE MADE IT! At long last, we are past our Spring Concert. Thank you so much to those that attended our performance last week, it was so lovely to get to make music for you all! A big congrats to all of our students for putting in the work to make the event so wonderful!
Students, be prepared to play this week. There are still a couple of possible tunes for next year we might be reading!
Also, students, please take the next few days to look over any potential missing assignments, as the cutoff for grades is later this week! Those on the edge of Final Exam exemption especially need to take a look at what is missing and how they can make it up.
There will be a separate email sent to all marching band parents alongside this email. Please let us know if you do not receive it.
Remember that the first marching band payment is due by the END OF THE SEMESTER, May 26. This info is was listed in the Marching Band Info Packet that was sent home previously. The first installment is $100
Leadership, please note that we have a meeting scheduled after school this Wednesday. Check the calendar for times!
And finally, please recall from last week that the dates for Spring Training have been updated to include only May 20 and 21. This event is for ALL Warhawk Squadron members!
