Music Department Fundraiser

Hello parents!  Thank you so much for all your support with our fundraiser!

I just wanted to post the link for the online fundraiser.  Friends and family from far away can help our program by going here:


Click on “Shop Now” and enter this group ID: 35726

When they check out, they will be prompted for a student’s name.  That way, your child gets the credit for the sale!  The item will ship directly; no collecting money or delivery work for you!


As a reminder, sales forms are due next Thursday, March 27th!  Items will be delivered the week of April 21st.

Thank you so much for all you do!


As a side note, I’m working on posting our ISSMA videos to my YouTube page.  I will put a link here as soon as they are up!  Congrats again to all the groups on their amazing performances!

ISSMA Contest Final Information


We finally have our performance times for ISSMA Contest.  Symphony and Philharmonic Orchestras will be performing on Friday, March 14th.  Chamber and Concert Orchestras will be performing on Saturday, March 15th.  Hopefully your student has given you a colorful packet of information.  The first page has all the times and other pertinent info.   It is very important that the second page (Field Trip Permission Form) be turned in as soon as possible!

I am looking for a few parents to help chaperone.  I need two parents per orchestra to ride the buses with us and stay with the orchestra.  You will get to hear your child perform.  Please contact me if you are willing to help us out.

As always, let me know if you have questions or concerns!
