Welcome to the 2013-2014 MTHS School year~! We are all very excited and looking forward to a fantastic year of music and song for our Band, Choir and Orchestra students this coming year.
You may ask, what does the MTHS Music Boosters do? The general purpose of the Music Boosters is to provide support to the music programs in such a way as to encourage the program’s growth and success. Music Boosters is self-supporting and finances all its activities through fundraising efforts.
On a grand scale, Music Boosters strives to raise the level of appreciation and involvement of the community within, and the community outside of, our music programs. Our primary mission is to assist, support and promote the directors and students through the school year by encouraging all to attend events & activities, assist with fundraisers, chaperone field trips, volunteering and much more.
All parents of Mountlake Terrace High School music students are automatically members of the MTHS Music Boosters. We invite each and everyone to take the opportunity to positively influence your student’s school experience in a way that is fun and rewarding, by volunteering at our events, helping with fundraisers and attending our music programs.
Volunteer time is essential to the success of our program. There are many ways you can help~! If you have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to ask any of us on the MTHS Music Booster Board, or other involved parents, what you can do to help. Watch for events that are posted on the Google Calendar or emails that may be sent out for opportunities where you can lend your helping hand.
Other ways to help is spread the news about events. Tell your friends and co-workers about the concerts and invite them to come and have a dessert party at your home following the concert to encourage community support. Bring your younger students to concerts so they can see and hear the great things that await them if they continue with music. Our students and directors work very hard to prepare for performing and having a full audience to perform to is what we always hope for.
And last, but not least, support your student. Encourage them & listen to them practice, celebrate small accomplishments, attend their concerts and celebrate the music~!!!

For the FIFTH YEAR in a row, and seven times overall through the 13 year history of the award. our Edmonds School District has been designated the “Best Community in 2013”. In all, 307 communities were recognized by the NAMM foundation.
We welcome and appreciate YOUR support!
