Music Foundation News


We are pleased to announce the following recipients of this year's Music Foundation scholarships:

Ryan Lee - Band
Hannah Miller - Chorus
Angelica Kim - Orchestra

We wish these students and all of our graduating seniors the very best as they begin their next journey.

In August, the Music Directors will be sending out a survey to both students and parents regarding spring trips and fundraisers. This survey will be mandatory for students and voluntary for parents. We highly encourage parents to participate. The more information we can gather, the better we are able to serve our music families and meet your needs.


Our Music Foundation provides a great deal of support to the amazing Directors who teach our talented students and provides opportunities for the students to earn money that is applied to their account for the spring trip. In order to fill in the monetary gaps, the Music Foundation holds a number of fundraisers, but they can't happen without the help of our music community. 

We are in dire need of a Publicity Chairperson!!
Are you comfortable working on a computer, sending emails or possibly making flyers? Do you like taking photos? You certainly do NOT need to have all these skills to fill the position! We just need a volunteer or two who are willing to help us put the word out about various events and fundraisers.

Do you like ordering apples from Baugher's or citrus to enjoy during those winter days? How about Kringles Danish? None of these items will be available to order without one OR MORE individuals to chair each fundraiser.

Thus, the following positions are OPEN and we'd love to fill them! 

PUBLICITY - Chairperson(s)
Baugher's Apple Sales - Chairperson(s)
Kringles Danish - Chairperson(s)
Citrus - Chairperson(s)
Flea Market - Chairperson(s)

If you are interested in any of these, please contact the
Music Foundation.

2018 Howard County Fair - Oreo Booth

The Howard County Fair will be August 4-11, 2018.  The Boosters Club will be operating the Fried Oreo Booth at the Fair again this year and we need your support.  The Oreo Booth is a great way to foster teamwork and build school spirit.  In the past we've had groups sign up for a shift or a day and man the booth with members and parents from the team/organization.  Please consider volunteering this year and help support the Boosters.  As you know, the Boosters Club provides funding for all school organizations and the Oreo Booth is a source for that funding.  It's a lot of fun and a very worthwhile cause.  The link below for the Sign Up Genius is going out to all teams/clubs/organizations first, and will be released to the rest of the MRHS community in a week. 

Please consider signing up before the schedule is full.




Instructions on how you can pay for your student's outstanding financial obligations can be found here

We currently have MRHS Music Spirit Wear available for sale as well as magnets, and ornaments. Concert tickets will also be made available via our Charms Online Store. You will find information on how to access our online store here

Please note that all payments on Charms are done using PayPay which will assess a 3% fee/donation to cover the expenses incurred by the Music Foundation for PayPal. You may still pay for your student's financial obligations or items ordered through the store by check. Online store orders will not be delivered to the student until the check is received in the black box outside the Fine Arts office.
