Join MPA

Dear Parents of WFBHS Music Students:

I hope you and your families are having a wonderful summer.

As challenging as it is to start thinking about the upcoming school year, registration is this week!  By now, you should have received Mr. Henkle’s e-mail titled, “Back to School Letter.”

Included with Mr. Henkle’s email is a Parent Organization Form.   I would like to invite and encourage all of you to join the Music Parents Association (MPA) this year.  You can join MPA by simply checking the Music Parents box on the Parent Organization Form. As indicated on the form, MPA is the umbrella group that provides financial assistance and volunteer support to all WFBHS music departments.  MPA’s membership fee is rather low — $25.00 – and this small investment yields significant returns, not only to the music departments as a whole, but also to individual students.  For example, students whose families belong to MPA are eligible for summer music camp grants and even college scholarships.   MPA also helps support the activities of Band Boosters, Choir Friends, and Orchestra Boosters.

Our primary fundraising is through the Concession Stand at football, basketball, and soccer games, which allows MPA to keep the membership fee so low.  Volunteers are only required to work two games per year (but can work more, of course!), and have formed lasting friendships in the process.  More significantly, thanks to all concession stand volunteers, MPA was able to allocate over $17,000 toward purchases for the brand new music wing, as well as purchase the new Yamaha performance piano!

There will be an MPA informational meeting on September 18, but for now, take the simple but important step of checking the MPA box on the Parent Organization Form and returning it with your membership check when your child registers.

Enjoy the rest of your summer!  Feel free to contact me via email (deborah.kohn@med.ge.com) or telephone (332-9045) with any questions.
