About the WMPS
The Westmount Music Parents’ Society is an amazing non-for-profit organization of music parents and guardians that help raise necessary funds for students to participate in Music. They help organize support structures for the Music Program.
Our meeting dates for the year are listed below. The WMPS uses the Sign-Up Genius application to garner parent volunteers for concerts, field trips and special events.
