Performance in Anaheim is planned for Friday, with plans to be done at 8:30. Itinerary to come. We have enough chaperones – thank you!

Final balance of the trip was due Feb. 15. Roommate requests were requested: four students to a room.

There will be 69 kids going plus chaperones.

Jennifer will coordinate the printing of (preferably red) t-shirts for all to wear during the performance and at Disneyland on Saturday.

Pancakes and Performance:

Seth, a percussionist senior student at NH, made a presentation to the group for the Pancakes and Performance morning on March 4 that he is coordinating for his Senior Project. This is a Music Boosters benefit. Requested donations are $5 for students; $7 for adults – and we hope we will get more donations than the requested amount. Cash or checks only. All NH music groups will perform with the schedule to be determined. Seth will create a parent volunteer schedule through the Sign-up Genius program. Seth will also promote the morning fundraiser to the local middle schools and elementary schools to encourage attendees as well as introduce future NH students to our fabulous music program!

Gaining Non-Profit status for the Nathan Hale Music Boosters Club was discussed and there is movement toward making this happen. More to come. This would mean that all Performing Arts donations would receive a tax deduction. (Carolyn wasn’t clear if this include the Drama Dept.)
