A Letter from Megan and Freeman Gunnell, Choir Booster Presidents 2018-2019
Dear Choir Families,
It’s an honor for us to serve as Choir Booster Presidents this year and support your students in this award-winning program. As many of you know, the Booster Organization supports the choir by raising funds to help cover the cost of costumes, choreography, musicians, sets and competition opportunities.
We know that students get so much out of their choir experience!
These opportunities provide them with important lessons not only in music education, but also in confidence building, camaraderie and teamwork, learning how to accept feedback and how to set goals. Being engaged in choir enhances focus and attention and affords students the opportunity to conquer fears and experience the thrill of performing.
We believe in the value that this program provides to all of our students and we are really excited to be part of it!
We couldn’t do this without our incredibly talented and devoted executive board. Each board member plays a significant role in helping guide the direction of the booster organization from fundraising and expenditures to supporting all of the performances and competitions.
We also couldn’t do this without YOUR support!
Becoming a booster member and signing up to volunteer are great ways to be involved! We appreciate your membership and support. Click here to sign up for a volunteer shift and click here to become a booster member.
