May Fair

May Fair is THIS SATURDAY! If you haven’t signed up, please do so today!Many hands make light work.
WE NEED ALL HANDS ON DECK!! This like Knight of Sound is a huge undertaking for NPMA. We need every family to give some of their time that day to make it a success. Due to the Senior Prom we are leaning on our underclassman parents to help in the afternoon shifts.
Please stop by the volunteer tent 10-15 min before your shift. If you have any NP gear, please wear that otherwise, we will have volunteer shirts available.
CHANGE OF PLANS!- Dunk tank- out, Pie throwing- out (Don’t ask!) We are going to do a Cake Walk instead! We need all the help we can get. If you would like to donate a homemade or store bought cake, cookie tray or any full dessert plate, please have it to the band room by 6pm on Friday, 5/10. Christine Bland will collect your donations. Thank you!!
Any questions, please contact us NPMA.donations@gmail.com
Thanks, Jen Logan & Karen Diehl- May Fair Chairs

Silent Auction

Thank you for all your donations! We have amazing items to auction off. Make sure you visit us and make a bid Saturday in the main café to the right of all the great vendors and crafters coming!

Donation Drive 

We have a donation drive starting April 7th . These funds will be put back into the program to support our ensembles. Here is a link to the website explaining the program. NPMA Kicks Off $5,000 Donation Drive
