July 15 Community Concert

IHS Music Boosters like to extend a warm thank you to the City of Independence for allowing us to sell refreshments during the Community Concert featuring the Wayne Tomsic Band. Thank you also goes out to our Chair, Elizabeth Jaszczak, helpers Anna Sarley and Eileen MacDowell, and bakers Michael Jaszczak, Laura Synek, Debra Cooper and Donna Belitz. It was a nice evening for music, dancing and socializing, and we managed to make some new friends and some money for the coffers.

Band Camp

Our marching band is sounding great and seems to have weathered the storm of away band camp. It makes us all look forward to the upcoming football season under the Friday night lights. Booster volunteers Krolikowski, Kula, Klindworth and Dolansky were busy garnering volunteers and members to sign up to join the organization, help with the various Home Days booths and Friday half-time refreshments. Thank you to all who helped, and thank you to everyone who has volunteered their time to make these events a huge success. Your support and volunteerism ensures a successful Booster organization and Music Department.

Photo Buttons

Thank you to Michael Jaszczak, Marian Martin, Mary Dolansky, Eileen MacDowell and Maureen Mroczynski for helping with the Photo Buttons. Photos for the buttons were taken on Band Photo Day and we will have many to print and make. It is our goal to have these available for parents/students to pick up at our first home game. Those with outstanding balances will be able to pay at pickup.

Fall Musical Scenery Help

Our fall musical, Oklahoma, will be held on Friday, November 12 and Saturday, November 13. Our master carpenter, Tom Harlan, has been having knee troubles and is in need of carpenters that can help build sets and scenery for the show. At times this is done during the school day and into the evening. If you have carpentry skills to help with this, even if it's just a few hours, please contact Meghan Campbell and she will give your information to Tom so he can give you a call.
