"Weekly Updates" has been a coordinated effort by Wisconsin School Music Association (WSMA) and Wisconsin Music Educators Association (WMEA) to share a collection of timely news items that are relevant to both memberships while at the same time helping to limit the number of individual emails sent from each organization during summer of 2020. This is the final combined Weekly Updates email. Please watch for timely news from each organization in other communications throughout the school year.
