Parent Contact Survey
ALL PARENTS- if you haven’t already, please take a moment to fill out this parent contact survey so that the managers of each program have your most up-to-date contact information.

Program Donations
Now accepting Program Donations! While we have cut our budget significantly, we still have coaches to pay and administrative costs to cover. The requested amount for ALL FALL groups is $250 (Jazz Band is $150). As a reminder, if your student is in more than one program this fall, we only ask that you pay the higher  program donation. You can make a payment on the website (https://mvhsmusic.com/mvhsimba/donate/) or drop a check in the mail (25108 Marguerite Pkwy #A229, MV, 92692). It is more important than ever that everyone contribute to sustain our program through this unusual time. Thank you for your support!

Hour-a-thon Fundraiser- Contacts due TOMORROW
Don’t forget- contacts for the Hour-a-thon are due TOMORROW, 9/25. Students will be calling all their contacts during class on Wednesday 9/30 and Thursday 10/1. Other programs in our area have raised more than $15,000 with this fundraiser. Please make sure to participate!
Introducing the New Online Store!
Announcing our new Online Store! You can now shop for student wear, stickers, magnets, and more, all from home. Check out new products (including options for Orchestra and Jazz) and great deals on past show shirts and vintage logo merchandise.
It’s that time of year for Dickies jackets! These are only available once a year (through October 4) on the online store and are very popular. You can customize the jacket with your name and choice of ensemble (new Jazz option this year). Don’t miss your chance!
