SEPTEMBER ANNOUNCEMENTS

The WMS Band program will have its one and only fundraiser this month beginning on September 11th-12th and ending September 25th-26th.   This fundraiser is CRUCIAL since the NC General Assembly has discontinued funding for concert band programs.  Each student is asked to be responsible for selling FOUR GoPlaySave coupon books.  Each book sells for $30 and contains hundreds of coupons for the Weddington and surrounding area.  All profits go directly to the WMS Band program for the purchasing of music, equipment, supplies, school owned instruments, and guest artist instruction.  Donations are also accepted should parents wish their student to not participate in the coupon book fundraiser.
