If you’re here, you probably got that “no-bake bakesale” letter. Good. You should see what we’re raising money for.

The following inventory is not complete. It’s already a long list, but there are more items to add to it.

SMMPA will do what we can do make this list shorter, but we need your help. Please donate to the “bake sale” today.

[1] Tubas are held together with electrical tape and zip ties.

[2] Large percussion instruments at marching band competitions have fallen apart when transported onto marching competition area.

[3] Broken choir risers are hazardous, have safety features missing, and were not built to be disassembled and reassembled every week (which is causing them to fall apart).
