Silver Sands MS Needs Our Help!

If you have concert band pants they’ve outgrown, the Silver Sands band would

love it if they would consider donating them to the Silver Sands band program.

Former Silver Sands Students: check your closets and drawers for Silver Sands black band pants and red band jackets! The SSMS band has grown, and they are short of both!

Drop items in the box by the uniform room!
