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."

All playing assignments from last week will be graded and updated by the end of the school day tomorrow. Remember, you are able to re-upload your playing assignments if you would like to improve your current grade.
Please be sure to keep a close eye on our Google Classrooms, as I will be updating assignments there over the next few days.
THANK YOU ALL for helping to make our Senior Night a huge success! From the Parent Volunteers who stepped up to help out, to the students working hard to give a great performance at halftime, it was a thoroughly enjoyable and memorable game (aside from the final score....). This week, we will begin making progress on our next chapter of the Shuffle Play halftime show. Music will be distributed at practice on Tuesday to Section Leaders.
Seniors, we love you and are so happy to have had the opportunity to honor and celebrate YOU and all you have brought to the Bands at Veterans. THANK YOU AGAIN FOR ALL YOU DO!!!!
We do not have a football game this week, and our next two games are both away. For these games, we are taking a Pep Band of 50 students. If you are interested in signing up, there will be a Google Form link posted tomorrow in the band room, and sent through Remind101. Sign-up for these games is OPTIONAL, and the roster will be chosen based off of Leadership, Seniority, Instrumentation needs, and Attitude and Demeanor among other aspects.
