Musicletter ~ 1/29 - 2/3

Hello Booster Families,

Wow... I hope you had a chance to see the District Honor Band concert last week.  The word I kept hearing to describe it was "awesome".  The band as a whole was amazing, but of course we're especially proud of the Mesa students that represented us. :-)

Our Scrip Event this month is dinner at Chipotle on Wednesday, the 31st. 

We have been asked to provide a Pep Band for the Silent Seven Game this Friday, February 2nd.  All members are welcome (and encouraged!) to join in the fun of playing pep band tunes in the gym.  Call time is 4:30pm.  

On Saturday, February 10th, we are hosting a Winter Guard Contest!  We're going to need lots of help for this. Currently there are 25 groups signed up to come and compete in our gym.  There will be a sign up genius coming out for volunteers as well as for donations.  Please help make this event run smoothly.  We will not be able to do this without all of you!!!!   Some things we'll need:  Someone to design and create a program (Mr. Greenberg will assist);  Parents to help run the Ticket booth, Unit check-in, Volunteer check-in, and First-aid station (any nurses/EMT's that can help?); and program ads need to be sold (see attachment below).

Our next Booster Meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, February 13th, 2018 at 7:00pm.

Students should be practicing their music for Festival in March.  It will be here sooner than we think!

Also...  There is a family of our organization that needs our help. Gus Mortensen was in a horrific traffic accident and now is in a coma at Providence Holy Cross Hospital in Mission Hills. Please add this amazing family into your thoughts and prayers. The family has set up a "gofundme" account if you are willing and able to donate anything. Mortensen family, our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.
