The WLCSC sponsors two summer bands for band students in Elementary and Junior High School. The Scarlet Band is comprised of students who have completed at least two years of elementary band, and the Hawk Band serves the students who just completed their first year of playing or students who would like to learn a secondary instrument. The band runs from the Wednesday after school lets out until the last week in June, when the students perform at the Music Boosters Ice Cream Social. They conclude Summer Band with a fun trip to Indiana Beach!
In recent years, the Summer Band program has had Mr. Leazenby (Happy Hollow Music Teacher), Mr. Gene Valentine (retired Cumberland Music Teacher), Prof. Ishbah Cox (Purdue University Bands) and Mr. Dan Peo (McCutcheon High School Band Director) as assistant directors.
