  • Welcome!

    Welcome to the 2016-2017 West Wing Band!

    I am excited for another terrific year at West Wing! For all students grades 3-8 we are going to have opportunities to gain a better understanding and appreciation of music and share that knowledge, love, and talents with student body, faculty, staff, administrators, parents, and family. Through practice, perseverance, accountability, and team cooperation, a high level of performance can be achieved.

    Please visit this website often for calendar and information updates. Included are fun links to guide in practice, printable music for our rockin’ 3rd graders, helpful hints for parents/guardians, and class letters. Feel free to email or call me with any questions or concerns!

    Happy New (School) Year!

     

    Musically yours,

    Mitchella Stevens
