Exciting Time to be a Spartan!

Music Booster Meeting – TODAY – Monday, March 11, 7pm in MHS Music Room

This week’s agenda includes officer nominations for next year.  Please consider volunteering and be sure to communicate your interest.  Music Booster Officers attend monthly meetings and work together to organize support for the students and faculty of the MHS Music Department.  Officers may volunteer to work at as many or few events as desired.

This is an exciting month for the 2012-13 Spartan Band.  The Spartan musicians look to continue a long tradition of musical excellence with upcoming performances in Jazz, Concert and Marching Band.  We understand that excellence is not achieved at random, and does not continue because of the work that has been done in the past, but exists because of the hard work and attention to detail that we put into our craft in class and at home on a daily basis.  Good luck to the Spartans in all of their upcoming performances!!

Friday 3/8 – Band Movie Night @ MHS 5-9pm (Romantic Comedies)
