Pizza Factory

Football Game & Pizza Dinner

This Friday we have our 4th Home Football Game against Mountlake Terrace.

Please have your student to the band room by 3:30 for practice.

Pizza from Pizza Factory will be available for students to purchase again at this game.

Pizza is $2.00/slice

Students you may order: Cheese, Pepperoni, or Sausage.

You may order by filling out an order form, found in the band room, it must be turned into the envelope on Mr. Haags office by the end of second period on Wednesday.


Fill out the comment form here.  I will get your order.



Send me your order on Facebook.

The Pizza order will be placed Thursday morning.  If I don’t have your order you will not have pizza for dinner.  The band boosters have been operating on the honor system.  Unfortunately, at the last two home games we did not collect enough cash to cover the cost of the Pizza.  If you know you owe money for Pizza please get that paid this Friday.


Pillage and Plunder Game Tomorrow Night!!!!

The Band will have the opportunity to enjoy a meal with the North Kitsap High School Band.  As is the band tradition the North Kitsap Band Boosters, home team, will offer a Pizza and Salad dinner to all band members from both high schools.  The cost is $5.00.  Pay at the door.  This is a wonderful opportunity for the students to enjoy a meal with their friends and neighbors that attend North Kitsap High School.  I know that all students will observe their best sportsman like manners.

Go Bucs!

Uniforms and Concert Attire – This is Important!

We have had a whirlwind fall!  The band sounds great, now we need to send out a couple reminders so they look great too!  Also we have American Rose Bridal coming in tomorrow to fit the new freshman and new incoming band students for Concert attire on Friday, September 26th.  Yep that is tomorrow.  
Reminder 1.  When the band is wearing their uniforms, students need to:
1.  Bring and wear their band shoes.  (new bags are on the way, so soon they can be stored in uniform room)
2.  Wear white socks that cover the ankles.  This prevents from seeing any color or skin if the spats or pants lift up… so all you see is white.
3.  Girls and boys with long hair should have their hair up under the shako/hat.  Shako’s can be taken off during non performing times, but during football games, All the rest of pieces of uniforms should stay on.
4.  Students should be wearing black band T-shirts under their uniforms that were given to them at band camp.  New students were given a tshirt at their uniform fitting so everyone should have one.  If you have lost the tshirt, Contact Cari Trussell and we can give you a new one for $5.00.
5.  No fingernail polish for performances.  No visible piercings on nose eyebrow, etc.  Earrings may be worn if small studs in ears.
Reminder 2. No Eating in your uniform!!!!!   When traveling, like to Auburn.  Band members may eat with the bibs/pants on, but no eating with the coat on.  Thank you.  Dry cleaning is expensive. 
Concert Attire Update
American Rose Bridal will be at the school to fit all band and choir members on Friday, September 26th during their music periods.  If they are a new or incoming student they will be fitted for a concert Dress (girls) Tuxes (boys)
We still don’t have a true cost yet.  This is due to the amount of savings that the vender will receive based on how many items are ordered.  The more ordered the better the discount which will be passed on to us.
The estimated rough cost will be:
Concert Dress  $100.00
includes hemming
Concert Tux $125.00
includes pants, jacket, shirt, cummerbunds, bow ties 
The actual cost will be charged to their ASB Account.  Students can make payments to this at the student store.
Any returning students that need pieces of the concert uniform can check to see if we have any pieces to check out or new items can be ordered.  If new items are ordered, student will be billed for those items on their ASB Accounts.
New Students joining after Band Camp   
For those students who joined the band after band camp, I have sent invoices home for the shoes, spats and gloves that are required part of the uniform.  Shoes are $35.00, Spats are $10.00 each and gloves are $2.50 each.  For a total of $60.00.
Checks for these items can be made out to KHSBB (Kingston High School Band Boosters) and can be mailed to the band PO Box at:
P.O. Box 1054
Kingston, WA  98346
I think I have touched on everything.  If you have any questions regarding the regular uniforms or the concert uniforms, please feel free to email me at or contact me on my cell at 360-440-3986.
Go Bucs!

Football Game Details

Just an update on this coming weekend. We will be in the black band shirts and jeans (tennis shoes) for Friday night’s football game. That way we can pack up our uniforms and put them in the traveling boxes during class Friday. That eliminates the uniforms getting dirty or wet before Saturday. It also saves us time after we perform Friday night and early Saturday morning making sure uniforms are squared away.
If it rains we can put on the KHS Band rain coats that night.
We will be leaving the game right after halftime. The band will be excused to quickly head home and get some rest before Saturday. Of course students are welcome to stay but will be expected to show up on time the next morning.

Saturday – Leavenworth

A reminder that the band room will be open at 0500 Saturday morning. We leave at 0545 to catch the 0625 Kingston/Edmonds ferry. Students will be allowed to travel in comfortable clothes in the morning and change into their uniforms once we arrive in Leavenworth. Students will change back into acceptable (per NKSD &KHS dress code policy) clothes for free time. Students will need to pack a sack lunch to eat before we march. They have also been told to bring cash for dinner and any collectables they want to get in Leavenworth. They are welcome to bring additional food/snacks and a pillow to catch some sleep Saturday morning as we head out. Attached is the job sheet schedule for the day if you have misplaced your first one.
That’s all for now. Any questions feel free to contact me.
Take care,

Kingston High School Band Boosters


Letterhead Logo

The Kingston High School Band Boosters are here to enhance and financially support the Band Programs at Kingston High School. Kingston High School Band Boosters (KHSBB) is a 501c3 non-profit organization staffed by volunteers.

Our bylaws state, that membership commences on the first day of school and ends on Labor Day the following year.  There are no annual dues.  Each member must complete and sign a membership form indicating his/her desire to belong to the organization and agreeing to the stated purpose of the group.  With that said once you register as a booster member there are many opportunities to volunteer..

The KHSBB is guided by a Board of Directors made up of officers and members at large. The Board meetings are open to all, and we encourage you to attend, although only Board members can vote on Board decisions. Any booster who has an item that he or she would like to present to the Board should contact the booster president or, contact a Board member who will then bring that item before the Board.

KHSBB meetings are the Second Wednesday of every month at 7:00 at KHS, in the band room. Please try to set aside this evening each month to be an active part of the group. Please arrive 10 minutes early the meetings will start promptly at 7:00 and end at 8:30pm. At the meeting, you receive information from the Board and the directors, hear committee reports, receive financial updates, and have an opportunity to take an active part in band activities. If you can’t attend a meeting, please check our website for current events and activities. When volunteers are needed, the related information is posted on the website. (Under Construction)

Sometimes new parents think that the KHSBB’s work is mostly being accomplished by someone else. Please know that we need every parents help throughout the year.

The KHSBB is vital to the operation of the band program. The program’s success and growth depends on parental commitment, time, and resources. Our director is a dedicated, talented, hard-working teacher and mentor. But he needs our help and support, as do our young musicians.

Everyone is welcome, so come out and participate whenever possible. Even if your time is limited (whose isn’t?), there are numerous ways in which you can make the band program even better! Your talents and abilities are needed. Please get involved. Together we can make it happen! And you’ll get to know your child’s friends and the parents of your child’s friends while you support a super activity for your child.


Lisa Ryder, Kingston High School Band Booster President
