Music Marathon Meeting

Thursday, July 15th

7pm in the band room.  All are invited.  We need your help!


Music Marathon/Pledge Parties

Please consider hosting a pledge party to bring in some much-needed funds that will go towards our annual Music Marathon fundraising campaign.

To sign up go to  pick any date in the next 2 month that does not already have a student’s name next to it.

We need students to sign up. Ms. Bounds has asked that all students sign up for at least 2 pledge parties.  You can sign up for more (and earn more prizes) but 2 would be fantastic! A big thanks to all the students who have signed up already, but we still need help.

For any question please contact Trudi Konzem or Ria Bradbury at
