Booster News

We had a great turnout at 8th Grade Orientation. Welcome to our new subscribers: the students and families of the Class of 2023! We're so glad you're here!

Our February meeting was brief. There's just not much happening right now that needs our attention. We confirmed that we will be hosting a concession stand during MSBOA Festival and we'll need lots of help and donations for that. We're still looking for someone(s) to take over the Concessions chair role. If there is anyone interested in taking on this job, sooner is better than later so you can shadow our outgoing chairs, Joe & Katy Settecerri. You can let them know if you're interested by sending them an email: Additionally, the role of Booster president will be opening up at the end of next year at the very latest (sooner is better, though!) If you're looking for an opportunity to learn the ropes, let Beth Stockdale know,

Concessions News
We still need some help with our Festival Concessions! We need donations and workers! Please have a look at our SignUp and see how/when you can help. It takes a village!

We've  learned that our current concessions chairs will be unable to continue in this role. We need someone to step in and take over the mantle from them. It's a big job, but it's very manageable. Please, reach out to Joe & Katy Settecerri if you're interested in learning the ropes with the goal of taking the reins from them,

MSBOA Festival

MSBOA Festival is happening next weekend! Friday evening & Saturday, Mar. 8 & 9, WLN will be hosting Festival. Students and families should already have received performance times/information from their director; if you've not received it, please let your director know! Parents ARE welcome to watch the Festival performances, including the Sight Reading portion. If you've not watched that before, you're missing out. A little bit of magic happens in those very few moments and it's a really cool thing for parents to see. If you're signed up to work concessions during the time your student performs, just let your crew chief know that your student is performing & you should be able to go watch them perform.

Shuman Performing Arts Grant!

Each year, WLCSD offers students an opportunity to apply for a performing arts grant. The student must apply using their Google Student account, and they may only apply for a grant for one performing arts event. We encourage any student who could use the assistance to apply for this grant. You may find more information HERE. The deadline to apply is April 9!

Hello music booster families! Thank you so much for all your support with our Music Booster Cookbook fundraiser! It was wildly successful. It seems we have more cook books left over than we should. Can you please contact Amy Walker and let her know if you have not received the books you ordered? I want to make sure everyone received what they purchased. We still have cookbooks for sale if anyone is interested they are $22 each!  Please contact Amy Walker and let her know if you want one!

Marching Band
Please mark your calendar for Tuesday, April 23. We will be having Marching Band Registration that evening. We don't have times worked out quite yet, but we'll let you know when we do. For incoming freshman and new marchers, there'll be an information meeting in the auditorium. For returning marchers, you'll simply need to come in and turn in your forms and payment(s). As is always the case, we will happily accept multiple, specifically post-dated checks for payments. Stay tuned for further details on those dates as well.
We finally have the official dates for our upcoming Disney trip! The WLN Marching Knights will be traveling to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fl, from February 15-19, 2020. Please stay tuned for more information on a meeting sometime in April, deposits due, and a payment schedule for the trip. As always, please remember that SCRIP is the best way to earn money to put towards your student's band trips!
