The ETHS Instrumental Music and Pageantry Boosters need you! We are issuing a call to fill currently open positions on the Board of Directors. It takes a group of dedicated parent volunteers to keep this program running. Do you want to be a part of the inner workings of the program? Do you want to make a greater contribution to our childrens' music education? YOU might just be what the program needs.
Don't sell yourself short. You have what it takes! It just requires a little more effort to muster that school spirit and the willingness to serve when called.
Board positions that are still open are:
See position details on the attached flyer. If you are interested or need additional information, you can email Yaprak, or phone her at (714) 204-7587.

It's time for Sports Health Screenings!
All students participating in Marching Band and Color Guard must have a Health Screening Form completed by a medical professional and turned in prior to the first day of Band Camp (date TBA). We have partnered with Saddleback Family Urgent Care to turn this into a fund-raising opportunity. The cost of the screening is $40, though 50% of the proceeds will be donated back to the program.
Screenings will be held on Saturday, June 26th. We can schedule additional screenings on the 27th, if necessary. Students will be screened at the Mission Viejo clinic (the Lake Forest office closed).
It is also fine to arrange to have a screening completed through your own family physician. Just be sure to have your physician complete the necessary forms, linked at the bottom of this page.
If you have any questions, please contact Barb Sellke by e-mail or at (949) 307-7676.

Congratulations! You survived a full year of online school during a pandemic. It has been a long time since we've all seen each other. So let’s kick off the summer with a celebration as we host our annual Beach Day Party at Huntington State Beach!
Parents and students are both welcome. Bring the entire family. We have reserved a picnic area with a fire ring. A few of us plan to be there from late morning. We have the space reserved past sunset, after which we'll have a bonfire in the fire pit.
We will supply dinner and dessert: pizza, drinks, and marshmallow s’mores for the fire. Plan to bring your own lunch, drinks, and snacks if you are spending the day.
Parking is $15. Spots fill up quickly, so come earlier if you can.
The downloadable flyer below has the map and details.
