CAPA, the Creative Arts Parent Association, will hold our first meeting of the year on Wednesday, September 16 in the WHS library. We’ll be talking about our plans for the year and welcoming volunteers for open positions. We have many wonderful things planned for this year, including our signature events, the Fall and Spring A Cappella fundraising concerts. Watch this space for details, or sign up for our email list (look to the right) for monthly updates.
We always welcome new members and volunteers to work with CAPA. Does your child participate in band, orchestra, chorus, theater, dance, or visual arts at Wayland High School? Would you like to help promote the arts and fund special opportunities, classes, and supplies that aren’t covered by the school budget? If so, here are some ways you can participate:
We hope to see you at a CAPA meeting or event soon! For more information about CAPA, browse this web site, check your mail for our fundraising letter, or contact us.
