Un-Fundraiser 2021

After taking a year off, our annual Un-Fundraiser Donation Drive is back!  Please donate today.

Our goal is to raise $10,000 for the Mona Shores Orchestra Parent Association’s general fund to support our orchestra students.  If we reach our goal, no additional fundraisers for the general fund will be held this school year. 

No amount is too big or too small.  Cash and Check donations are currently being accepted by all orchestra students until October 15, or make a quick and easy donation ONLINE.

If every orchestra student collects five $10 donations ($50 total) we will meet our goal.

Thank you so much for your support of the

Mona Shores Orchestra Program!

MSO Class of 2020

Tonight was supposed to be MSO Spring Concert and the final concert for our seniors. Traditionally the seniors are recognized and awards are given.  So tonight Mrs. DeRose, Mona Shores Orchestra Parent Association Board went on the road to present awards, present MSO 2020 yard signs, and have the seniors sign a violin that will hang in the high school orchestra room.

The parade of cars honked as they approached a seniors home and stopped to cheer on the seniors from an acceptable social distance as Mrs. DeRose recognized the class of 2020. Most of the seniors were home but we did leave surprises for each of them. It was a fun night seeing the seniors with smiles on their faces. As the fun continued we even added a few more cars with seniors and parents .

Congratulations to the Class of 2020 and best of luck on your next adventure.
