Civil War Fight Songs

Posted on: November 6, 2018

Hey, Duck and Beaver fans!
Wouldn’t it be great to have a live band come to your school, business, or home on the Tuesday before the Civil War game and play your favorite fight song? Or even better… wouldn’t it be great to have the WEST ALBANY HIGH SCHOOL BAND go to one of your friends’ or neighbors’ place of business and play YOUR favorite fight song, especially if it is NOT THEIR favorite?

On Tuesday, November 20th, the West Albany Bulldog Band will be traveling around Albany, Tangent, and Corvallis to perform for area businesses, schools, and homes “friendly” fight songs and “non-friendly” ones. For a donation of $50.00, we will come and play the college fight song of your choice (“friendly”). For $75.00 we will play the opposing team’s fight song at a friend’s business or home (“non-friendly”).

You can hire the band by calling WAHS (541-967-4545) or by emailing Stuart Welsh.

We will need your name, address, and phone number; we will create a schedule as we receive requests. Make checks payable to WAHS Bands. Proceeds will help offset costs for festivals, uniforms, instruments, repair, technology, and sheet music.

PARENTS: A reminder about student drop-off and pick-up

Posted on: October 31, 2018

Please remember that the student drop-off / pick-up area is at the front of the school; parents should turn off of Liberty St. into the driveway closest to Queen to drop students off.

Please do not use the driveway between West Albany and Memorial to drop students off or pick them up. The resulting combination of cars making U-turns, buses, students and staff members parking, and students crossing back and forth between the schools on foot creates a significant safety hazard.

Thank you for helping us keep kids safe!
