Hello Music Booster families!

Happy Spring! I look forward to seeing you all at our Spring Concert Series and fully expect an impressive 3 nights of fabulous music by your children.

I am writing to you today to give you a head’s up on the “Stand up for Public Schools” day this Wednesday, May 9. This is an excellent opportunity to show your commitment and appreciation to our PUBLIC school and specifically to show your support of our Instrumental Music program by making or increasing your donation to the Carlmont Academic Foundation — aka “CAF.”

Our award-winning instrumental music program benefits DIRECTLY from CAF’s funding. We depend on CAF’s commitment to fund our Assistant Director position, a position that is critical to the success of our 300+ student Instrumental Music program.

Whereas our Music Booster organization provides funds for all the support to our students (clinicians, competitions, busses, instruments and repairs, and sheet music to name a few items), CAF provides the district with the funding to hire our Assistant Director in order to be able to offer the many periods of classes needed for our many bands and orchestras. We are very grateful for this commitment and want to be sure that our music families are aware of this direct benefit to our students.

So please visit this link this Wednesday!

On behalf of the Music Booster Board of Directors, our music directors and our students, we thank you in advance!

Betsy Carter
Music Booster Board President
