MSHS Music Booster Org

Through Boosters, the students in Orchestra, Choir, Band, Piano, and Guitar are eligible to apply for scholarships for private lessons, summer camps, and college. During the 2018-2019 school year, Boosters provided over 800 private music lessons, and awarded 7 summer camp scholarships and 16 senior scholarships.
Boosters also provide financial and hands-on help with concerts, equipment, guest musician clinics, travel experiences, snacks/meals, uniforms, etc., and respond to various requests from teachers throughout the year.

Speech, Drama Broadcast Boosters
The mission of the Speech, Drama & Broadcasting Boosters organization of Maine South High School is to support the students participating in these three programs, both in the classroom and as extracurricular activities. Our primary focus is to raise funds and offer scholarships to graduating seniors. In the past three years we have distributed over $35,000 in scholarships. The SDB Boosters support and assist the faculty, the Fine Arts Administration, and the students involved in speech, drama and broadcasting.
The Drama Department produces a number of shows throughout the year. A large part of our fundraising is through raffles, concessions, and flower sales at these performances. TLC dinners are served during tech rehearsals to everyone involved with the production of the fall and winter plays and the musical. The Boosters also support drama at Maine South by hosting receptions during special performances and recognition ceremonies, and assisting the International Thespian Society Troupe with their fundraisers.
The Broadcasting program includes both radio and television experience for students. Funds donated to SDB Boosters have enabled us to assist with updating broadcasting equipment, to host an end-of-the-year reception celebrating excellent work and festival awards, and to provide other support of these students’ activities.
Please consider joining Speech, Drama & Broadcasting Boosters. As an added incentive, your membership will enable you to enjoy the benefit of purchasing pre-sale tickets to the Spring Musical. Our meetings are open to all members and are held five times a year. We can always use help with TLC dinners, concessions, and flower sales at performances and many of us really enjoy getting to know each other by working together in support of our children’s creative endeavors. Please join, even if you are not available to volunteer. Though most of our members are parents of current students, some SDB Boosters are alumni families or friends from the community who wish to support arts education at Maine South, and we are so grateful to them. We depend on and truly appreciate any donations of time and/or your financial support of the Speech, Drama & Broadcasting Booster programs!
