 Edmonds-Woodway High School Music Boosters Club

Mission Statement

          The EWHS Music Boosters Club is a nonprofit, charitable association organized for the purpose of supporting the EWHS Music Department. Functions include:
   1)     providing support to the staff and students,
   2)     raising supplementary funds to benefit the Music Department
   3)     Providing scholarships to music students.

Membership

          NO DUES.   All parents/guardians of EWHS music students are members by virtue of their student’s participation in the music program. Parent participation enables our Music Teachers to do what they do best… spend their time working directly with our music students. MEETINGS: usually the 2nd Tuesday of the month in the Choral Room. Watch the Crier and monthly school calendar for exact meeting dates. We look forward to seeing you this year.
