School Starting Soon!

This summer really flew by and I am excited to start back to school! Please stay tuned for updates here in regards to our virtual music department for the start of school.

I am so proud of the hard work our high school band members have put forth this summer! The students are working well together and continue to exude a great deal of pride in not only their work but their performances! We hope to share another performance of our full halftime show and pregame via Live Stream at the end of our August Rehearsals!

The August Newsletter contains some reminders about the band’s upcoming performances, the rest of our summer schedule, and Band Boosters volunteer opportunities. Please feel free to contact me via e-mail or phone if you have any ideas, questions, or concerns. I appreciate the dedication and support you, the parents and students, have provided!

Go Wildcats!

Fall Fundraiser Survey--Updated!!

As we start preparing for the school year, the Music Boosters wanted to gauge interest in our annual Cookie Dough and Gardner Pie fundraisers. We also wanted to see if there is interested in Handel's Ice Cream Cards---a great way to get some ice cream and help the music program!! Please complete the survey linked below and we appreciate your consideration!

Our music program is now enrolled in Acme Cash Back until the end of the 2020 year. If you have any receipts from your shopping trips--please send them with your student to put in our receipt bin in the music room, snap a picture and send it to Mrs. Bonitz, or hold on to them (We can collect them at a later date!)
