Home of the Marching Emerald Regiment Booster Club
Murrieta Mesa High School's Marching Emerald Regiment (MER) is an award winning performance group that is growing in size and reputation with every new season. Having performed competitively only since 2009, the MER is enjoying its repustation as one of the premier performance groups in local competitions throughout Southern California. And once the competition season ends,our MER settles in to become one of the classiest concert groups in the area. One thing is certain - whether it's Fall season field show competitions or Spring's formal concert programs, Murrieta Mesa's Ram Pride is evident in each and every performance.
All of this perfection doesn't happen without a lot of hard work, and our students cannot do it all on their own. They need our support, both financially and physically, as they travel to distant performance venues; raise money to cover travel, music and coaching expenses; and prepare for each and every award winning performance. That's where the MER Booster Club comes into the equation. It is our job to provide the support our students need, whether it's helping to build field show props for next season's show, or leading a fundraising effort to offset travel and coaching costs. The students need our help, and we need your help.
Every parent or guardian with a student in MER is automatically a Booster. So make it a point to come out and join the fun! Each year is full of opportunities to show your support. It makes no difference whether it's glamourous work like organizing the annual car show, or grunt work like loading the trucks after the last field show performance of the season. WE NEED YOU THERE! And don't forget our monthly meetings, where we plan all the fun and opportunities to share. JOIN US.
