Welcome to the MVTHS Foundation

Our 2021-22 Major Project

The MVTHS Marching Band currently performs in uniforms that are nearly 30 years old.  They are threadbare and outdated.  We hope that you'll help bring our Marching Band program into the 21st century!


Our project is in collaboration with the MVTHS Music Boosters and MVTHS District 201 to raise a total of $55,000.  The Foundation's commitment to this project is up to $18,000 over two years.

As an extension of the curricular bands at MVTHS, the marching band offers real-world application of skills learned in the music classroom. Through their participation in marching band, students come together in a larger ensemble that not only draws from skills and knowledge from the classroom, but also further enhances their music education through more leadership, teamwork, problem solving and outreach opportunities.  Marching band is an essential part of any music student's career, especially for those looking to continue on with music beyond their high school years.  Some notable statistics about the MVTHS band program:

• 2,500+ students will physically wear the uniforms over the uniform's lifetime

• 3 year-round band classes currently are offered at the high school

• Yearly scholarships are awarded to students that participate in band/music

• Over 95% retention rate in band students from last year

• Marching band students perform for the entire student body at pep rallies and assemblies

• 700+ attendees at weekly home football games and thousands more at various parades and competitions

• Past competition judges have commented that the current uniforms are "outdated" and competition scores have suffered because of it

• Interest in music classes is growing.  An influx of new music students is expected from Casey Middle School and county school programs.
