Music Marathon

2019 MM Flyer

Our Music Marathon is coming up on March 1st.

Students start playing at 8am and don’t stop till 10pm. Food and games will be available starting with Kona Ice at 3pm. Come check it out, mark your calendars!

Please help spread the word – the event is open to the public at 3pm ending at 10pm.

Santa Teresa and surrounding communities are invited to hear an amazing group of students making really good music, really, it’s good, and Live! Come and hear for yourself. We’ll have groups of families working together to organize having food and other entertainment as students perform all day to raise money for their program.

Donations for our Silent Auction and Student Drawing are still needed. Donation List – the list is so long we have lots of needs, for items and cash. Contacts us via email

Pledge Parties

Pledge Parties are still on going and Hosts are Wanted!!

Every Saturday and Sunday in January and February students in the STHS band & color guard program go out into the neighborhood to play music, tell our neighbors about the Music Marathon, and to collect donations (pledges). These fun get-togethers start at a local host’s home and last a couple hours.

That’s where YOU come in!

If you can open your home for a couple hours on the weekend and take a short walk around your neighborhood, you are a perfect Pledge Party Host!

You can sign up at ivolunteer.com/#3 or by email atpledgeparty@600building.com.

Questions? Ask Trudi or Ria or send an email to pledgeparty@600building.com

With your help, we can raise thousands of dollars for the band program. (REALLY!)
