Our Mission

 

The CVMS Music Boosters is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit in charge of ensuring the continued existence and the vitality of the instrumental music program at Carmel Valley Middle School. We are a community of involved parents who support the CVMS music program through donations and volunteering.  We make it possible for all Carmel Valley Middle School to have a first rate musical education and for the art of music to thrive on the CVMS campus.

 

We rely on donations to keep music alive at CVMS:
