Welcome back

Because late updates are better than never… Hey, you’ve been inundated with a bunch of back-to-school forms and flyers and what not – who’s had time to read boosters stuff anyway?

Below is a reformatted-for-the-web version of the Orientation Night news letter.

 

Mission Statement

The purpose of the MTHS Music Boosters is to assist the Music Directors at Mountlake Terrace High School in delivering the best possible music education to every student at MTHS.

MTHS Music Boosters support to our instructors, help with events, and promote the music program on the web. We coordinate fundraising event that supports travel, special instructors (clinicians), equipment, music, field trips.

How to Help

If you have a student in MTHS Music, you’re automatically a MTHS Music Booster! We cherish all the new music community members. You don’t have to start with some huge time commitment. There are plenty of small, specific jobs we can really use help with!

Our amazing music program, and your young musician’s experience in it, simply doesn’t work as well without your willingness to volunteer.
