Choral Boosters Club

The SHS Choral Boosters Club will hold our next meeting on Tuesday, September 20, at 6 pm in the Chorus room (Room 33) We welcome all Chorus parents to join us to plan and organize fundraising events for this school year. Are you tech and social media savvy? If so, we are looking for a parent to volunteer to take pictures at concerts and events, and to work with a Chorus student to keep our social media pages current. Please get in touch with our Boosters President, Kim Munn Johnson, at munnkimberly@gmail.com for more information.
