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!
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
