Valentine’s Day Fundraiser

Good day Spartan Band Members and Supporters

We have a Valentine’s Day ❤️candy gram fundraiser in progress at the school. We will have a table set up during lunch to collect money for candy grams that the students can send to other students. The price options are $1.00, $3.00 and $10.00. Candy grams will be delivered on February 14th.

So far we have made $50.00 in sales but we really really need volunteers to help man the table with Shannon Wright from 10:45 to 12:45 on Thursday and Friday of this week and Monday thru Friday of next week. Any help is greatly appreciated. Please contact Shannon at 615-556-7384 if you are able to help.

2016 Santa’s Arrival and Tree Lighting


Please select the following link for information on the upcoming 2016 Santa’s Arrival and Tree Lighting. santas-arrival-wshs-participation-confirmation.  This event is scheduled for 11/19/2016 at the Oak Court Mall. Arrival time is 5:30 PM.

This file details the arrival time and location for the band students selected to participate in this event: Wind Ensemble and Drum Line band members.

Please note – in addition to the students marching some extra help will be needed for the following:

  • Mr Sims will be providing fold-able stands for the Wind Ensemble students.  Assistance is required to help set these up while the kids are marching so they can play once they make their way back to the tree.
  • Mr Sims will be providing some sale items that we could place on a table near the Christmas Tree, but would need people to man it while the Wind Ensemble and Drum Line march and then play.

Kind Regards,
White Station Band Boosters

Upcoming Fundraisers

Greetings Spartan Band Members and Supporters

We have several upcoming fundraisers, so we wanted to present them here for your benefit.

1. Candy Sale: You may already have seen and heard about our candy sale. So far, many of the students are doing very well with this, although Mr. Sims really needs to get the candybarmoney in  from the sale so he can pay the bill for the portion we owe. This sale, if you have not heard is meant to help pay off uniform costs, band fees (which we still need in order to continue going to games), and other associated costs for the program (ask and Mr. Sims will share the breakdown). Each candy bar/box is sold for $1 and the students yield 50 cents in return.

2. Citrus Sale: The second fundraiser is a citrus sale. As a band, we have done this in the past and actually done quite well. The selections are comprised of Tangelos, Grapefruit, Oranges, or a combination box. Flyers were available in class so you could have the opportunity to cut down the spending out of your pocket for anything we do. The sale ends on Friday, October 21st (Mr. Sims has to process and submit the orders by the 28th of October at the latest). All orders would come in before Thanksgiving. This fruit is fresh from the orchard, not like what one would buy in the grocery store. If your child did not bring home a flyer and you are interested in this fundraiser, please click on the following two links: Front / Back .

3. WSHS Night at the Riverkings: January 6, 2017 7:30 PM at Landers Center, 4560 Venture Dr, Southaven, MS 38671, USA. The River kings are having a WSHS night at the Landers Center arena. Tickets are $16 – General Admission. Up to $10 will go to supporting White Station students and teachers via White Station High Partners In Education. Go here to purchase tickets and be sure to select the band as the beneficiary of your purchase.

4. Car Wash: Lastly, in the past we have done well with car washes. Mr. Sims is carwashconsidering putting on another car wash. The students are greatly in favor of this idea has Mr. Sims has received several request for a car wash from the students. If we choose to
host a car wash, it could be done on a Saturday on campus. Let Mr Sims know if this is something you may be willing to allow your child to do for an hour or two before the weather turns colder.

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Kind Regards,

WSHS Spartan Band Boosters
