Welcome to the 2017-2018 Helix Instrumental Music season!
We would like to take this opportunity to welcome our new members and our returning veterans to the Helix Instrumental Music Family. Whether you are a student or a parent you will have many opportunities to get involved with people sharing common goals and interests. For both the student and the parent, lifelong friendships will develop. We are pleased that you have chosen to join the Helix Instrumental Music Program.
The Helix Instrumental Music Association would like to welcome each of you. The Helix Instrumental Music Association or HIMA as it is commonly called is a non-profit parent booster association that works with our Instrumental Music Directors, Mrs. Armstrong and Mr. Benge, to support the music program. Every parent is a member and needs to be dedicated to supporting the music program. Our Association can only be successful with the help of our students’ families and friends!
We have an awesome team of HIMA Board Members who are happy to answer any questions you may have. Please feel free to contact any one of us with questions or concerns.
Once again, thank you for being a part of Helix Instrumental Music Program. May you all find it a rich and rewarding experience. To our old members, we say, “Thank you for returning your talents.” and to new members, we say “Welcome”.
