Mighty maroon Band
WELCOME TO THE HOMEPAGE OF
THE PRIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN EMPIRE
The band program at George Wythe High School and Scott Memorial Middle School has been a symbol of success and pride for the high school and residents of Wytheville since the first notes were played over 68 years ago. With students ranging from 6th to 12th grade, the band program is made up the SMMS 6th and 7th Grade Bands, the GWHS 8th Grade/High School Concert Band, the Mighty Maroon Marching Band, and the GWHS Indoor Drumline and Winter Guard. With an emphasis on hard work and dedication the GWHS Concert Band is a 3 time Virginia Honor Band.
The bands are under the direction of Mr. Dan Wilner.
Hello! I hope everyone is safely enjoying their summer break so far. I know this has been a crazy last few months, but hopefully things will move in a positive direction and we’ll be starting to feel a little more normal.
New York Trip Refund and Insurance
Our trip company, Kaleidoscope Adventures, has recovered funds from all but one vendor. This particular vendor was hard hit with everything shutting down and applied for a bailout loan which is still processing. The plan is to do one refund payment, which must go through the boosters and then the boosters will do a single refund check to families. After that has been completed, the insurance claim can proceed. I apologize that it is taking so long (trust me, I would love to have the money back for Sam’s trip!), this has just been an unprecedented few months and dust isn’t settled yet. Hopefully we’ll get good news soon!
