The perfection that is Murrieta Mesa High School Performance Corps doesn't happen without a lot of hard work, and our students cannot do it all on their own. They need support, both financially and physically, as they travel to distant performance venues; raise money to cover travel, music and coaching expenses; and prepare for each and every award winning performance. That's where the Booster Club comes into play. It is the Booster Club's job to provide the support our students need, whether it's helping to build field show props for next season's show, or leading a fundraising effort to offset travel and coaching costs. The students need our help, and we need your help.
Every parent or guardian with a student in MER is automatically a Booster. So make it a point to come out and join the fun! Each year is full of opportunities to show your support, and WE NEED YOU THERE! Plus, don't forget our monthly meetings, where we plan all the fun and opportunities to share. JOIN US.
