Practice-a-thon info: 

Every year MWSA holds a Practice-a-thon fundraiser. Students record their practice minutes every day during the scheduled 12 days. Students are encouraged to obtain pledges from family and friends. Pledges can be a specific dollar amount or can be per minute or hour practiced. At the end of the Practice-a-thon, students will submit their minutes practiced and donations online and receive prizes for reaching certain goals. In May, MWSA will have grand prize drawings for students who practiced more than 200 minutes and have at least one donation (any amount).    

The Practice-a-thon begins on Monday, March 8th and goes until Friday, March 19th.  Please see the attached Practice-a-thon Tracking Sheet to help you record your minutes.  Practice minutes and donations need to be submitted online at www.mountainweststrings.com by Friday, March 26th in order to qualify for prizes.
