Welcome to the 2014-2015 School Year.

Good day Spartan Band Students and Supporters.

Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year. We hope everyone had a great summer.

To get the WSMS Spartan Band year rolling here are a few notes from Mr. Scott.

You may have seen this same information in a recent email from Mr. Scott, but we’d like to make sure everyone gets this important information.

Band Booster Rationale:

I know some of you might be wondering about the reasons for having a booster organization. This is to help facilitate the arts education of our band students. It is very hard to get money from the district to pay for certain things like private lessons, performing groups like the ensemble mentioned above, and travel expenses. I hope that everyone is interested will come to the meeting and see what it is all about. If we can set up this organization the right way I have big plans ahead!

Band Fee:

I am putting in a yearly band fee for each student of $40. This is to cover expenses related to band events like All-West Auditions, Solo and Ensemble participation, and music purchases. This means that the money that is usually paid by the students as the year progresses will be paid all at once to make it a little easier on everyone.

Thank you

Mr. Bryan Scott

Also, please have a look at the upcoming events page to see what activities are currently scheduled. This is going to be an exciting year of growth for the WSMS Spartan Band, and we will put details of all the excitement here.

One more note from your friendly WSMS Spartan Band web guy. He wants to make your student famous on our website, so please send photos of your band student in action. Please be sure to include a name, or a small caption with the pictures. Email your pictures to

One More Day Left!

Good day Spartan Band Students and Supporters.

Two exciting things are happening tomorrow, May 23rd.

1.  The obvious one of course is the end of school year.  It’s been an exciting year for our band students, and we’re very proud of their musical accomplishments this year. Great job Spartans!

2. Secondly, is a reminder of our potluck tomorrow at 6:30 PM, in front of the school.  This is to celebrate the great year and our outstanding students!! Just bring some food for your family, introduce yourselves to the other parents, and have fun. The students are welcomed to bring any outdoor activities that can be played on the field in front of the school, and everyone is encouraged to mingle and get to know someone new.  We are looking forward to seeing you there.
