Welcome Letter – 2017

spartanlove
Dear Parents,
Welcome to the 2017-2018 White Station High School (WSHS) Band Boosters. Since you have a child participating in the WSHS band program, then you are officially a member of the WSHS Band Boosters.  The Band Boosters support the band director, Mr. Brian Sims, and the WSHS band students as well as encourage fellowship among all band parents.
One way we encourage fellowship is through volunteering. Consider volunteering! We need volunteers on all of the following committees: Audit, Band Banquet, Chaperone, Communication, Fundraising, Nominating, Transportation, and Uniform Committee. Please volunteer for one or as many committees as you can! If you have a special skill/ability (e.g., instrument cleaning/repair, photography, graphic design, painting, sewing, etc.) that you can offer to the band program, then please let us know.
Fundraising is an important part of our band program and we have several fundraising opportunities throughout the year. Group fundraisers such as car washes and BBQ sales help raise much needed funds for the band program to purchase music and office supplies, repair instruments, and so much more. Band students can also participate in individual fundraisers to earn money used to reduce the cost of the spring band trip. We welcome all ideas for fundraisers, so please volunteer your ideas and volunteer to help!
Most importantly, please be engaged in the band program by attending our monthly Band Boosters General meetings. By attending the booster meetings, you stay informed about all of the band and booster activities. General meetings are scheduled once a month and will be posted to the band website. Our band website is
https://whitestationband.org which is updated with the latest news. Join our Facebook page, “White Station High School Band” and follow the band on Twitter @thestation_band. The Remind app is also used for notification of band activities. Stay tuned!
Please be sure to take time to read emails from White Station Band Boosters as they contain important band information. If you are not receiving emails, then please contact our Communications Officer, Denise Cooper, at whitestationbandboosters@gmail.com. No one should ever say, “I didn’t know about that.”
The WSHS Band Booster Officers for the 2017-2018 year are:
  • President – Stephanie Ziegler
  • Vice President – Lara Hunter
  • Secretary – Amy Parkison
  • Treasurer – Andre Brooks
  • Communications – Denise Cooper
If you have any questions, then please feel free to contact any one of the Officers. We will help in any way we can. Our email is whitestationbandboosters@gmail.com
Let’s have fun and make this a memorable year for our kids!
WECOME EVERYONE!

Car Wash Update and August 5th Car Wash Reminder

Greetings Spartan Band Members and Supporter,1stPrize

We made $833.09 from last Saturday’s car wash and even competed with 2 other car washes that same day.  Way to go!!!  A big thank you to all parents and students who came out to help.  We appreciate the doughnuts and the pizza too!

Let’s try to have an even bigger success with our next car wash scheduled for Saturday, August 5th.  We will have the car wash at the same location (band parking lot) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Let’s get some more signs made to advertise!!

Due to the excessive heat that we have had lately, the boosters would like to ask for donations of water for the kids.  Its a tough job washing those cars, so the kids need to stay hydrated.

We will work on having plenty of ice for the water.  If you would like to donate other items, then please contact the boosters at whitestationbandboosters@gmail.com
