Welcome to the 2014-2015 School year!  The Band Boosters invite you to attend our Parents meeting on September 2, 2014 at 7:00pm in the WBHS Media Center (may be moved as building needs require).

The Band Boosters Association of West Bloomfield supports all band programs at WBHS, OLMS and AMS.  As the parent of a band student you are encouraged to become involved in the programs, both curricular and extracurricular.

Please see the agenda below, and review the minutes from the last Parents Meeting on August 5.

Hope to see you there!
