West Boylston Middle High School's upcoming production of School House Rock, will be at 7 PM, this Friday and Saturday, April 10 and 11, at the WBM/HS auditorium.

Bring back all your favorite School House jingles from the Emmy Award-winning 1970s Saturday morning cartoon series including "I'm Just a Bill", "Lolly, Lolly, Lolly", and "Conjunction Junction" as Tom, a nerve-wracked school teacher, nervous about his first day of teaching, is inspired to win his students over with imagination and music. 


The art faculty of West Boylston Middle/High is pleased to announce that nine of our students currently have work on display at the Worcester Art Museum.

We had a great evening with Rich Leufstedt and Jim Webster leading the West Boylston Uke Club at Pinecroft Dairy the other day.  Hope to see everyone for our next uke session on Wednesday, July 23 at 6pm!



                                           




   

Community invited to take part in Major Edwards mural




Check out this video from West Boylston Middle High School of  the African dance class that the WBAF sponsored with the Gallery of African Art in Clinton.  It isn't easy to get a class of Middle school grade boys to enjoy a dance class where they actually move, but the whoops and cheers at the end are proof that they enjoyed this class!  Great job by Issa Coulibaly and Zach Combs of Crocodile River Music!


 






   



 
In 2010, WBAF received a grant of  $7,180  from the Ernie Bock Family's Music Drives Us Foundation.  This money helped ensure that the West Boylston Major Edwards Elementary School Band continued to perform and enrich the lives of our students.  For more information about this vital organization, visit musicdrivesus.org
The West Boylston Arts Foundation has been supported in part by grants from the West Boylston Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council , a state agency.  The grants that we have received include those for the resident artist that worked with the students of Major Edwards Elementary School to design and create the Bicentennial Mosaic that hangs in the school, and for an African drumming performance last February by Spirit of Africa for the Major Edwards school.
