SMSA is looking to add instruments to our band programs for students who are just starting out, in need of help financially, and/or are unsure what they would like to play and may need to try a few different options. Instruments can be dropped off at the North or South office during regular school hours.


Please email with questions.

All uniform and spirit wear pieces that your child outgrows, throughout the school year, can be dropped off at the North or South Hall Offices during regular school hours.
