New Volunteer Application System

A Note from Mrs. Welser:
NEW VOLUNTEER APPROVAL SYSTEM:  Midland Public Schools has changed from their old BRAVO forms to a new online system through The United Way that will be an all online submission.  Hopefully this will streamline volunteer approval.
The volunteer levels are the same as in the past. The goal is to have all drivers and volunteers fill out the new form by the time August band camp rolls around. Included is the link for application.

Uniform Reminders and Found HD Jump Drive

Thank you to the many music reps and parents for hours of volunteer time to get the tuxes, gowns, and band polos checked back in. We’ve heard some stories!!! Lots of clothing coming in dirty – thank you to the parents for washing gowns, tuxes, and polos!!! Your time is appreciated. All music department clothing must be returned… bring them in today!  Please pin the name of your student on the gown, tux, or polo. Your help is appreciated.

The Senior Music Dinner was held at the Midland Country Club last night… it was a wonderful event. Thank you to the many parents, directors (and retired director – Kathy Peretz), and music reps for turning in so many beautiful photos and videos to Nancy and Lee Schaffert. The slide presentation was fantastic. A jump drive with the slide presentation was left at the Country Club last night. Please let a director know if you’re missing yours!  If you’re interested in purchasing either a DVD or HD jump drive of the slide presentation, please contact Lee Schaffert.

For those parents still interested in purchasing a name plate for the Music Recognition Plaque in the Music Hallway at Midland High… please contact Jackie Light.  There will be a refurbishing of the plaque within the next few months – it’s going to look great!

Good luck to all our graduating seniors… you’ve been an integral part of the music program for many years! And to the parents graduating out of the music program… you’ll be missed. Thank you for all you’ve done to support the MHS Music Parents and the fabulous music department at Midland High.

This is a lovely evening meant to celebrate the accomplishments of the seniors in the music program. A wonderful meal is catered by the Midland Country Club. Dinner begins at 6:30 followed by individual recognition for senior music students by their director and ends with video presentation of the music seniors… this has become a beloved tradition at MHS.

We are also looking for audio files of music made by our students to use as background for the slide show. (Rhapsody, Solo & Ensemble, Concerts, other performances).

The easiest way to submit photos, audio, or short video clips (30 seconds or less – no more than 10 Mb) or music files is to email the files directly to Mrs. Karen Welser at

All 1’s for MHS Bands and Symphony Orchestra!

At the recent band and orchestra festival, MHS scored straight 1’s. Congratulations to the MHS Blue Band, Gold Band, and Symphonic Band. Also, congratulations to the MHS Symphony Orchestra. This is an exceptional accomplishment in light of the challenges caused by 5 snow days leading up to the competition. Mr. Monroe and Mrs. Breneman were thrilled with the performances.
