IMPORTANT PARENT / BOOSTER MEETING - SEPTEMBER 11. - 6pm - CHORUS ROOM #608
Parents – WE NEED YOU!
Thank you in advance all for the many times during the coming year that you will support our singers and help them to have a memorable musical experience! Several times throughout the year parents will be contacted with information or with requests to help out in specific areas. Students should see to it that parents receive any information handed out, as there will usually be some response requested. The best way to support the choral program at HHS is to attend your students’ performances! This may seem like an obvious statement, but I know that many of you have multiple students in a variety of activities throughout the county, jobs, community involvement, etc. Please make your students arts education a priority when possible. A small investment now in your students’ musical success has the potential to make big returns later on.
If you are unable to attend an event, please make arrangements for your student to be picked up after the performance or trip in a timely manner. Mr. Mullinax cannot transport students home or leave them unattended at our performance venues.
The Choral Booster Organization is the fund-raising arm of the choral program at Heritage HS. In order for us to function, it is necessary to raise money -- for new equipment, maintenance to existing equipment, supplies, and most importantly travel expenses. “Student work” is the preferred form of fundraising per WCPSS policy. Fundraisers are sponsored by Choral Boosters. Our fundraising runs from January through December. The money we raise this year will determine accessibility to special event trips next school year. Fundraising dollars may also be used for lab fees, costume fees or fines .All fundraising ideas and suggestions are welcome and if the need arises we will consider doing extra fundraising to ensure the future growth of the choral program. I encourage students to form small groups or work jobs to raise money toward travel. If you have ideas for fundraising, we ask that you consider joining the Heritage Choral Booster Organization to provide your expertise and assistance with developing and implementing your ideas.
The only avenue to raise additional funds for your student is through our Booster Organization.
I try my very best to keep lab fees as low as possible, so ALL students can afford to “have a voice” in the choral program at Heritage HS. The more active our parents are, the easier it is on everyone and the more enriching your students choral experience will be. I know we all are busy with our personal lives, but remember, your student reaps the benefits of your involvement.
