June 2024 Newsletter

Welcome to our last official newsletter of the 2023/24 school year. Just a few short weeks to go and then it is summer break! We hope you have wonderful plans ahead and many of those include music. 🙂

Please take a look below at some of the events we have coming up soon. We could also use a little help with some of them, including our Awards Concert on 6/4, our Second Spring Concert on 6/11, our annual Music Department BBQ for students in 6/7, and possibly becoming part of Boosters leadership.

Please note that we will be posting periodic updates on social media during the summer, but no official newsletters. Please stop by our Facebook page at  https://m.facebook.com/ewhsmusic/ and Instagram account at https://www.instagram.com/ewhs_music/. You can also refer to our EWHS Music Calendar for a current list of events.

Warmest regards
