We would like to congratulate the class winners of the 38th Dixie Classic Band Competition:

Eagle Cup Winner - Bluestone High School
Grand Champion - Jefferson Forest High School

Thank you to everyone who helped make the 38th Dixie Classic Band Competition a success. Without you our patrons, trophy sponsors, advertisers, volunteers, participating bands, spectators, and community members we would not have been able to hold this annual event. Your continued support is very appreciated. We hope that you will come out to watch and support the G.W. Band at all of our future football games, competitions, and concert.

Thank You!


Medical Forms

Every student and parent who will be travelling with the G.W. Band during the 2015-2016 school year must complete a Band Medical Form, regardless of whether they are a returning or new member.  These forms must be completed, notarized by a Notary Public, and turned in to the Band Office by July 31, 2015.

You can find a Notary Public at any bank/credit union or law office.  We will also arrange to have a Notary available at the end of most July practices (Including Band Camp).

**This is very important because we can not take care of your child if something happens to them while they are with the band on a trip.  This form also serves as the permission slip to travel with the band the entire school year.**
