The IMA knows the Instrumental Music Program at Easton Area High School is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. We want you to be able to stay connected to the program, to hear about upcoming events where you can support our Rover performers and programs, and to participate in or support fundraisers.
Votes will be taken using the Zoom Polling feature. When a vote is called, you will be automatically presented with the voting options directly in Zoom. Votes will be collected anonymously and tallied automatically.
We are going to hold our April IMA meeting, virtually, on Tuesday, April 14 at 7:00 p.m. A link to the meeting will be distributed a few days before the meeting. The main topics of the meeting include:
Updates about schedules and events.
Voting on IMA board members for the 2020-2021 school year (the list will be distributed before the meeting).
Voting on a proposed amendment to the IMA by-laws (the amendment will be distributed before the meeting).
Provide financial updates.
If you know someone who may be interested in serving on the IMA board for next year, please submit their name to Regina Gangemi at firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, April 8, 2020.
As we work through the cancellations and restrictions surrounding COVID-19, we wanted to keep everyone informed of events previously scheduled for the next few weeks. We will communicate any updates as they arise.
New dates have yet to be determined.

The IMA is partnering with Yankee Candle® Fundraising, which has something for everyone, including a variety of candles, décor, home fragrance and kitchen products–some start at under $10! Best of all, our organization will earn up to 45% PROFIT ON EVERY SALE!
This fundraiser will be available through a catalog sold by students and last until March 2. However, this fundraiser also will be available online for those family members and friends who live outside of the area through July 8, 2020.
We are excited to welcome the current 8th graders to the EAHS Band & Orchestra for the 2020 – 2021 school year. All families should have received letters regarding 8th grade evaluations and color guard clinics and auditions via email. However, both are available below:
Sign up for an evaluation time slot. If you play more than one instrument, please sign up for two separate time slots. Arrive early to your slot so you can be properly warmed up and ready to go. Remember, these are not auditions, but meant for us to begin planning so we can have a successful upcoming year and also to answer any questions you may have.
Color Guard Members
We will be holding a series of clinics in the spring, leading up to auditions on April 20. There is a place for everyone in our program. We want to see your skill set and to learn what we need to work on for the upcoming school year. The first clinic will be on March 9, 2020 in the EAHS Cafeteria from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. Please arrive early so we can begin at 6:00 p.m.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Mr. Ballentine at email@example.com or (610) 250-2481 extension 32214.
