2020 WMS Band Spring Trip
This year's Spring trip cost will be $20.00. This will include charter bus contribution and their souvenir 2020 Spring trip shirt. Letters with more detailed information will be distributed on Monday.
Instrument Contracts and Usage Fees
Usage fees for school-owned instruments, including percussion, are set at $75 for the duration of the 2019-2020 school year. You may pay usage fees in one installment, or you may pay half in the Fall and half in the Spring.
Usage fee due dates were set in the Band Handbook as follows:
Complete fee or first payment- September 5, 2019
Second payment- January 16, 2020
**Usage fees are utilized for routine maintenance and yearly cleaning. It is critical that all usage fees are paid in order to maintain the quality of instrument that the students of PFISD are fortunate to have been provided with.
Advanced Bands Practice Schedules
There will be tutorial buses available for them to ride on at the conclusion of practice. Please make sure they know their address and/or neighborhood to let the bus driver know where to drop them off.
Thank you so much for your continued support!

Daily Individual Practice and Practice Logs
Did you know?....
That the more consistency our band members have with their daily practice, the greater improvements they will make in their individual playing. Please encourage your student to practice on a daily basis! It should only take anywhere from 15-20 minutes to work on the parts of their music they struggle with.
Band students do have practice logs due at the end of every week. They do require a parent signature if they are practicing at home, or a band director's signature if they are practicing at school.
We thank you for encouraging your students to practice their instruments daily. It will greatly increase the quality of performance at our upcoming concerts!
