Middle School Band

The instrumental music program at SPMS is led by Jen Fletcher (5/6) and Amy Anderson (7/8).

From our 5th graders beginning their musical journey to 8th graders getting the opportunity to join the high school marching band, we have bands that fit students of all levels at SPMS.  For those that want to broaden their music skills, students can also participate in jazz band, drum line, middle school winterguard, and more! 

Our 6th-8th grade band students perform in both a winter concert and a spring concert at SPHS, as well as the MBDA Concert Band Festival in March. Our 5th grade band performs in 'informances' in January at SPMS, and an end of the year celebration concert in May.
