MusicNotes Week of 9/7

Week of September 7
Welcome to MusicNotes!
This is the official weekly communication from The MVHS Instrumental Music Booster Association. Emails will be sent weekly with information on the events, fundraising, and any important information for all groups. MusicNotes will be sent out on Thursdays, so be sure to check your emails then!
Attend the Monthly Booster Meetings
All parents are welcome to attend the booster meetings, currently held on Zoom. Booster meetings are held monthly on the first Tuesday of each month at 7pm, and are a great opportunity to be involved in the Music Program.
Meet the Managers
Each group in the Music Program has a parent manager, who helps to communicate, run logistics, etc for that group. If you ever have program specific questions, we encourage you to reach out to them.
Our 2020-2021 Managers are:
Marching Band/ Drumline: Dana Barnes- marchingband@mvhsmusic.com
Color Guard: Currently Open! Email colorguard@mvhsmusic.com

During this unprecedented time, fundraising for our program is more important than ever! Many of our biggest money makers cannot take place due to the pandemic, but we still want to work hard to create the best experience that we can for our students! Check out our current fundraising opportunities to see how you can help out.
