We are excited to announce our new WPHS Music Booster!  The WPHS  Music Booster coordinates with leaders of the White Plains High School music program to determine the needs of the department and create plans for assistance. They strive to attend all music events, provide support with organization and setup, and will be hosting multiple fundraising events throughout the year to raise monies that help supplement and support these programs.

To support our students' musical growth and endeavors, we invite you to contribute to the annual fund drive by visiting the website linked below.
