Music Boosters

The Music Boosters meet on the second Tuesday of every month at 7pm. Our meetings are held in the choir room of Chippewa Jr/Sr. HS (room 122). All parents of performing arts students (choir, band, musicals, drama) in grades 5-12 are considered to be a part of the booster organization and are invited to attend all meetings. The more volunteer participation we can have, the more it will benefit our students. Our next meeting will be Tuesday, January 14, 2019 at 7:00.

We have been given a wonderful opportunity to raise some money on a regular basis. We need a rotation of volunteers on a regular basis to help at the recycling center to unload recyclables from vehicles and place in the recycling bins. This is on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of every month, from 9am-noon. We will only need 2-3 students and a chaperone on these days. The address is 14065 Galehouse Rd. This is a nice form of steady income for the Music Boosters. Students are expected to sign up on the boards in the choir and band rooms.

EVERY choir and band student should take a turn doing this throughout the year. Some students have done it multiple times when no one else was willing to commit. PLEASE ask your child if they have signed up yet. We are especially in need of volunteers for the summer.

This is the easiest fundraiser we do! While it is an early Saturday, students do get volunteer hours for doing it, and there are usually only a few cars that come in the entire 3-hour period, and some do not even need our help! Bring a deck of cards, a snack, it can actually be fun!!!
