Music Mentors – Week of September 8th

Tag Day was a HUGE success!

We want to thank everyone for an amazing Tag Day! We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding with the craziness of assigning routes and getting the students buddied up to go. We want to make sure this event is not only monetarily successful but it is of utmost importance that the kids enjoy contributing to it and that means we do our best to try and give them the opportunity to be with a friend. We also appreciate those students that paired up with students they didn’t know and hope those turn out to be friendships.
Tag Day enables us to keep up with the instruments we need, repairs, new music, guest instructors, snacks, band competitions, classroom needs, extra uniforms, props, general equipment, etc. So every penny counts!
To our adult volunteers – thank you, thank you, thank you! Without you, we would never be able to reach all areas of Mentor! Students – thank you for giving up a Saturday to not only help yourselves but help the future band students in Mentor. To all our Music Mentors volunteers and staff – thank you also for volunteering your Saturday! And to Mrs. Freeman, our Tag day chair – your countless hours of scheduling, emails, rescheduling, copying, etc do not go unnoticed! Lastly, we extend a heartfelt thank you to all that donated. Currently, we have raised over $18,000 and we are working hard to meet our goal of $20,000. Donations can still be turned in and they can also be mailed to Music Mentors, PO Box 1864, Mentor, Oh 44061.
