Moving Forward

Big picture

We hope everyone is safe and well during this time.


First and foremost, the Directors of the West Shore Marching Band are committed to providing a valuable, safe, and educational season no matter what it looks like. Until we are told otherwise, we will be putting on a "show" during the fall, even though it will look quite different.


Our schedule will continue to follow the dates that are on the Google calendar that you can find a link to below. For band camp, we have adjusted times - please see below:


Band Camp is scheduled for:

  • August 6th & 7th
  • August 10th through the 14th


Winds (Everyday)

  • 5:00pm - 9:00pm everyday


Guard (Everyday):

  • 9:00am - 12:00pm
  • 5:00 - 9:00pm


Percussion (Everyday):

We are coming up with a list of procedures for the week in terms of operations, a rain plan, and what will be included during practices for those days. I hope to have all that information to you by Monday, August 3rd.


In the mean time, I am opening up conversation about band camp and future rehearsals and taking any questions/concerns. Below is a google form to fill out to voice those concerns or questions that we can address.


Finally - your child must have a medical form turned in by August 6th.


Thank you,


WSMB Staff

Registration Fees

*Please do not let a fee deter you from signing your child up for marching band. The District and Booster program are her to help kids stay involved. I guarantee your child's participation in this activity is worth it. Please read all the information, especially if you are new!*

Fees

There are two fees associated with participating in the West Shore Marching Band.


  • West Shore Music Booster Fee $100 (for this year to start).
  • School Participation Fee $100


Given the circumstances, we are starting are registration fee out at $100 to help us cover initial costs of the season. However, if we have a full season we will need to ask for an extra $50 dollars in September to cover normal student expenses. (food/nationals transportation/etc..)
