WE DID IT!! The Crescendo Challenge

was met AND exceeded. A HUGE Thank You

goes out to the Zurek Family for not only their

extremely generous donation but for putting our

students first in their hearts.

Thank you also to all our booster members, their

families, their friends and our students for making

our Crescendo Challenge a big success! I'm excited

to see the impact this will have on our program, when

combined, with all the Fairshares, and the other

Individual Donations we have been fortunate to receive

so far this year.

Although it seems we just finished a major fundraiser

we do have two others that will take us to the end of the

school year. One is our annual WHSIMD Jazz Festival,

which happens in March. The other is the Yearbook and

we are launching that event this month.  Last year we had

an impressive outcome with our advertising sales and hope

to repeat or increase that again this year. It is a big

undertaking to keep our many groups equipped but I always

like to think about the many students benefitting from the

invaluable gift of an education in music. As you know music

classes, like no other class they will take, can give your children an instant connection to the joy of learning.

Thank you all for being part of filling the rest of the school year with JOY!

FairShare Donation Important!

Regiment is over and Winter Drumline is getting underway.

Won’t you please help us keep our incredible program in good shape?

We need all our Regiment participants to send in their fairshare

dollars so we can continue to support the needs of the department.

Every little bit counts! Can’t pay the total? Just send what you can.

It all goes into making your child’s experience one they will

cherish for a lifetime.

Please make your check out to WHSIMB and drop it off in

the band room box OR you can mail your check to:

Paypal payments there:


The Conejo Valley Corridor Card

$25.00 and $15.00 goes directly to the Music Department.

It is good for all of 2014 and supports many local merchants.

Just one or two uses and it pays for itself.

The card can be purchased on line at the web-store and

is a great gift idea.

Email Brynne Bradbrook when

you have completed your purchase online to get the card

so you can start saving!


2014 is well on its way and so are our scrip sales.

With Valentines Day coming up what better way to say

" I love you" than with gift cards:) Well, maybe using them

to take your sweetie out to dinner. Keep yourselves stocked.

Gas cards, supermarket's, restaurants, retail shops and car

wash tickets. Remember, it's all free money into your ISA account.

If you have any scrip needs, contact Wendy Asarch at or call me at 805-374-9912 or any

scrip seller on the list.  Happy Savings.


Earn money with MUVICO!
