Looking for Arbor View Music Booster Association liaison

D89 Music Boosters is looking for a liaison at each elementary school in the district. Music Boosters is a non-profit organization run by parents and teachers to support music in all District 89 schools.

This is a new role designed to promote early interest and support for the Music Boosters. It will not be a time-intensive role. You will be a “local rep” at your school: answering parent questions and/or referring them to MBA officers; sharing information through the various channels at your school; and occasional invitations to meetings where you can meet other liaisons and get information.

Please contact Joan Klaus at if you’re interested in becoming an MBA Liaison.
