Booster News

This is the final newsletter of the 2018-19 school year! Can you believe it's done?! My junior is now officially a senior! This will be my last year as Booster president, and I'm still looking for someone who's interested in filling the role when I'm gone. If you have questions or comments over the summer, you can always reach me at Look for the first newsletter of the new year to arrive sometime after the first couple of weeks of August.

Special Note: When making any payments to Boosters (fundraisers, trips, camp, retreats, uniforms - anything!), checks should be made payable to 'WLNMB' or 'Walled Lake Northern Music Boosters' or even 'WLN Music Boosters' (unless stated otherwise) using blue or black ink only, per the bank. If you're not sure, ask your director! We received some checks recently that were made out to 'things' other than those three options (i.e. WLCSD, WLN, WLN Boosters, WLN Choir Boosters, WLN Marching Band, etc.) and we're not sure the bank will accept them. Incorrect checks can create a lot of extra work for me plus we can be assessed bank fees on checks that are returned. So, any assistance anyone and everyone can give to make sure checks are properly filled out would be greatly appreciated.
Wendy Fowler
WLNMB Treasurer
Our final meeting of the year was last night. We had a presentation from a representative from Foundation for Excellence, who came and spoke about the Shuman Performing Arts Grant as well as the other work that great organization does. You can find more information about Foundation for Excellence on the District's website. We also set up the meeting schedule for the next school year. Please note that those dates can be found on the calendar, which you can access via our website, The meeting dates are tentative, as concerts, etc. may be scheduled for the dates we've selected, and we'll need to adjust for those should that happen.

We look forward to welcoming the incoming freshman class of music students. We will have a table at registration, where you'll be able to get information about sponsorships, purchase Happy Cheeks ($25 - we do have them in stock if anyone needs a stadium cushion!) , or car decals.

Our needs for next year include:
Booster President
Concessions Chair to run our 3 concession stands in the winter
Incentives Chair to input data on for the student incentive accounts
Choir Representative
Orchestra Representative
Marching Band photographers

If you're interested in taking on one of these roles, please let Beth Stockdale know:

Have a great summer!

Concessions News

IMPORTANT: We've  learned that our current concessions chairs will be unable to continue in this role. We need someone to step in and take over the mantle from them. It's a big job, but it's very manageable. We only run 3 concession stands per year! Please, reach out to Joe & Katy Settecerri if you're interested in learning the ropes with the goal of taking the reins from them,


Disney Trip
All future Disney communications will be made via Charms. The first official email went out last night. If you didn't get it, send  an email to & let Beth know. We've had a couple of issues with emails not being delivered & we're working on those. If your student doesn't have a Charms account, you will be missing out on important trip information. We will be creating chaperone Charms accounts for communication and accounting purposes in the next couple of weeks.

 Checks should be made payable to WLNMB and marked Disney trip in the Memo line. They can be dropped off with the trip registration form in 2 places at the school: in the front office, in an envelope marked "Mary Hulliberger - Disney trip" or in the band box, which is a locked box just outside Mrs. H's office door in the band room. Alternatively, you can mail it to the school, addressed:
WLN Music Boosters
Attn: Disney Trip / Mrs. Hulliburger
6000 Bogie Lake Rd
Commerce Twp, MI 48382

Our first scheduled trip fundraiser is happening July 14 at Sidecar Slider Bar! Find the flyer HERE. There seemed to have been some confusion with the wait staff with regard to showing flyers on phones, so we'll ask you to please print one off & take it to the restaurant on July 14!

Additionally, we've kicked off a bottle/can drive to raise funds for the trip. You can find the flyer HERE. There is a Facebook event happening with the flyer there too. Let us help you clean up after your summer parties!

Marching Band Spirit Wear

Don't forget! Our marching band spirit wear website is up & running!  For anyone interested in spirit wear, here is the website:
Orders submitted by June 30 can be included in team delivery during home camp (no delivery charge).

Marching Band
Marching Band payments are due as follows: June 1, July 1, and July 11. If you need to make alternate payment arrangements, please contact Mary Hulliberger. Checks should be made payable to WLNMB with Marching Band noted on the Memo line, and in an envelope marked "Mary Hulliberger - Marching Band", can be dropped in the front office or in the band box (locked box in the band room just outside Mrs. H's office door!) or mailed to:
WLN Music Boosters
Attn: Marching Band / Mrs. Hulliberger

We are looking for volunteer photographers(amateur or professional) to come out and take pictures of our kids during home camp ( Monday July 22 to Friday July 26) , Away camp ( Monday July 29th to Saturday August 3rd) and during the band season.

**If you still need  to create a Charms account (new to marching band), you can find instructions on our  website , following the instructions for "First Time Logging In". If you already have a Charms account but can't remember a username or password, please reach out to Beth Stockdale, or Mo Seifert, Either of these ladies can help you with a user name or resetting a password. We ask that if you already have an account, please do not create a new one when you can't remember the login details. We can help with that & multiple accounts for 1 student causes problems within the program.
