  • WMS Band Boosters Meetings

    Dear 6th and 7th Grade Band Parents: The WMS Band Boosters is a group of parents who want to help our band by providing that invaluable support needed to take the program above and beyond for our students. They meet on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 6PM in the band room. Currently, we have 5 officers whose children are all in 7th grade. Our 8th graders are involved in many of the high school band activities, so we send our 8th grade parents to the MCHS Band Boosters. So, next year, our 5 officers will move up. 6th Grade Parents: This is a great time for you to come out, to see if there is a role you would like to fill next year, or simply come to offer your help! The next meeting is Sept. 20 at 6PM in the band room. The plan is to set up the fundraisers for the year, and also organize uniform fittings. Throughout the year, the band boosters also help with the planning of events and trip, getting sponsorships for t-shirts, and organizing fundraisers, as well as supporting the band through funding of clinicians, materials, and experiences that "boost" our band program!!! Thank you!
