BIO TO COME! Check back soon!

THANK YOU from Mr. Johnson

I wanted to take a moment and say thank you to all of the AWESOME students that I've been able to work with for the past five years. I am extrememly proud of the many accomplishments that we have made at Evergreen in the past five years. In 2015, we had the highest scoring and placing marching show in over 10 YEARS! The Wind Symphony was invited to perform at the National Concert Band Festival - the first nationally recoginzed performance of our concert band program EVER! This year, we had the honor to present a clinic at the NAfME all Northwest Music Educators Conference. In 2015 we had only 10 pariticipants in the Solo & Ensemble contest, and this year we had more than 70! Watching the students grow as musicians and young men and women has been so rewarding.


To the students... Keep pushing yourselves to acheive at the highest levels possible. Life is tough, and learning to work hard and go for goals that may seem unattainable will only boost your success, your self-confidence and your quality of life. Support each other and build relationships with one another that will help you feel safe and strong. Keep me posted on how you are doing and where you are going. And of course... keep PLAYING MUSIC! It only continues to be more and more rewarding the better you become, so don't give up. YOU have started a great new era of music making at Evergreen High School. There are many years & many students to come that NEED YOU to continue your comittment to excellence and help push this program onward. I wish you, Mr. Gustafson and Mr. Sorum the very best as you continue upward.

A Note about Fair Share

A HUGE THANK YOU TO THE FAMILIES THAT HAVE ALREADY PAID YOUR FAIR SHARE!


We strive in the EHS Band & Orchestra Program to provide extra learning opportunities and enrichment for our students. We want to continue to bring in high quality clinicians and coaches to give our students the very best experience possible. All of that work comes at a price.


Combined with travel for parade/festivals, parties/socials, food incentives, uniform care and maintenance, etc. it costs several thousand dollars to run the band program and we stretch way beyond any funding provided by the Evergreen School District. We ask that every student in the band and orchestra to pay a small fee of $75.00 for the year to help offset the costs to our booster program. This fee will cover a small percentage of the amount needed to make this program top notch for our students. When fair share is combined with fundraising efforts, everyone has an opportunity to provide for the longevity and continued success of our program.


We hope all of our families will make arrangements to pay this fair share as soon as possible. Payments can be made online by clicking the link below - or checks can be brought to the band/orchestra room and dropped off in the booster deposit box. Make all checks payable to EHS Boosters.


THANK YOU for your continued support!


Mr Johnson & Mr Gustafson
