The Holiday Gift Card Sales DSF Fundraiser runs November 9th through November 27th, 2018.

You can offer your friends and family great stocking stuffers…and take advantage of some great deals yourself! All proceeds are deposited into students’ personal DSF accounts to help pay for trips, fees, music related expenses, etc.

Students will have a choice of either having the cards delivered to them at school by the directors or by picking them up directly.

For more information, directions, and order forms, visit the MPA Holiday Gift Card Sales web page.

The Pellman Desserts DSF fundraiser runs from October 12th through October 30th. All order forms are due by October 30th, and dessert pick-up will take place in the Downingtown East HS cafeteria on November 14th between the hours of 4:30 pm and 6:30 pm.

Music in Motion Cavalcade of Bands

A very special thanks, again, to all of our volunteers, our sponsors, our School Board and administration, our families and students, our directors and techs, and our community for making this year's Cavalcade a huge success. It was a beautiful September evening, and the stands were packed. We could not have done this without your help and support.
