Thank you for your continued support of the Poquessing Music Department!!!
 
The Poquessing Middle School Music Boosters Organization is comprised of parents of musicians in the bands, choruses and orchestra.  The main function of the booster organization is to support the instrumental, choral and musical programs.  The Music Boosters also help parents offset the costs associated with the program.  Booster meetings are the best time to find out what is going on with concerts, musical and trips. The meetings begin at 7:30 PM.  We welcome YOUR help - please attend the meetings. If we all do a little we can accomplish a lot!
 
We encourage you to become involved in any way possible, large or small.There are always plenty of opportunities to help no matter what your ability or availability. We look forward to meeting and working with you during the 2014 - 2015 school year. Please refer to the new Neshaminy Volunteer Policy for this year, we will discuss further and have the forms available at the December Music Booster Meetings.
