Below are the minutes to the August 20th Band Booster Meeting.
Burke families, staff, and friends
The Burke Instrumental Music Department started the 2015-2016 school year with the goal to raise $15,000. We are raising funds in order to purchase two full size tubas, one baritone saxophone and two bass clarinets. These instruments are essential in providing a quality ensemble, which will enhance the education of our students.
Omaha Schools Foundation has agreed to assist us with the Direct Giving Campaign, Please consider making a secure tax-deductible donation. If each family donated just $25, we would far exceed our goal. Please consider being a part of this school-wide effort.
You can donate online at: https://ops.thankyou4caring.org/pages/school-gifts-donation-form
Thank you for your consideration and support
