2021 is a different kind of year, that is for sure. One thing that we hope won’t be different is your commitment to supporting band, orchestra, and choir students in grades 4 through 8! While we are anticipating a different feel to the year, we still need your support to provide scholarships, financial assistance for instrument rentals, and a celebration for the students for all of their hard work in the spring. We were very fortunate in the 2019-2020 school year, and the music boosters were able to raise about $9,500. This year, we hope to raise $7,000 to support our students. We are not anticipating fall concerts to be able to sell candy grams, which were a large fundraiser, so we are hoping for strong membership numbers to make up for it!
Please consider joining the Elmhurst Music Boosters (EMB) at any level to support elementary and middle school students. If your student has moved on to high school, please consider joining the York Music Boosters next year when they resume memberships. To join EMB, follow this link here and pay in the District 205 Webstore. We will be delivering car magnets to new members!
