The Marshalltown High School fine arts department including the band, choir and orchestra will be holding a fundraiser starting this weekend. Students will be selling discount cards on Saturday, March 18 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the community going door to door. Cards will also be available from students until March 27.
The cost of the card is $20 and is valid for one year. The card also includes a key tag that one can register for discounts from around the country.
Proceeds of the card sales will be used to cover the cost of fine arts contest registrations and transportation and will also be used to purchase show choir costumes, orchestra tuxedos and gowns and marching band uniforms as well as show choir choreography, marching band music, marching routines and drill team choreography.
Calling all parents of MHS fine arts and parents of Miller Middle School band, choir and orchestra students.
The Bobcat Band Booster Parent Organization will become the MHS Fine Arts Boosters and include the band, choir and orchestra parents beginning this summer. A meeting for all parents will be held on March 20 at 7 p.m. in the MHS cafeteria.
The purpose of the meeting is to select a parent booster board and brainstorm ways to raise money and support the fine arts. Please plan to attend or contact Choir Director Amy Ose, Orchestra Director Maggie Williams or Band Director Brett Umthun if you are unable to attend and are interested in helping as part of the Fine Arts boosters.
