A word of welcome to all our incoming students and families – we’re very glad that you’re going to be a part of the Walton Band Family!
You’re going to be learning a lot of new things in the coming days and weeks, and you’re going to have a lot of questions. The purpose of this article is to answer some of those questions and equip you to be up to date on what’s going on.
First… the e-blast is by far our most important method of disseminating information to the band family. If you are not already subscribed please go here and subscribe right now. Also, if you miss an issue you can find back issues on the same page.
Second… the calendar page on the site gives you a detailed look at the band calendar throughout the year. As an aside, if you’re someone that is moderately adept with technology there’s a link on the calendar page that will allow you to synchronize the calendar with the one on your smartphone, tablet, or computer-based calendar. As of this writing only part of the summer calendar has been posted online, but you can look at a copy of last year’s schedule to get a rough idea of how things unfold.
Third… You can find general contact information for the WBPA Board of Directors here and you can find specific committee chair contact information here. If you don’t find the answer to your questions in the e-blast or on the website then feel free to reach out to the appropriate persons to get your questions answered.
Again, welcome to the Walton Band Family.
John & Mitzi Underwood

The Walton Marching Raider Band recently competed in what was widely regarded as the toughest BOA Atlanta Super Regional ever, and walked away with an 8th place finish. The band’s score of 84.10 was their highest score at BOA Atlanta since 2005 and the second highest ever for Walton at this event.
Congratulations to the Walton Band members and staff on their outstanding performance at the McEachern Marching Invitational this past Saturday.
