Led by the passion of music teacher, Ms. Lazaruk, our students from kindergarten to grade 7 will be participating in a 12 hour drum a thon to support efforts to improve the lives of Refugees in Syria. The event on November 25 will begin with the band drumming at 8 AM and the school will continue the drumming throughout the day. After school, grade 7 students, Marlborough Alumni and volunteers will continue the drumming into the evening program. Please refer to the notice brought home by your child to confirm times for the optional evening activities. Parents are encouraged to join in the drumming in the evening.
An assortment of baked goods and hot chocolate will be on sale during the evening event and the music room will be converted into a Dreamland Gift Shop where families can purchase goods donated by Marlborough families. All proceeds will go to the fundraising effort.
The main fundraising will be done in two ways. First, donations can be made on-line to the Red Cross at www.redcross.ca/marlboroughrhythmsforlife. The Red Cross will send tax receipts for donations of $20 or more.
The second method allows students to take home a reminder of Marlborough. Through the Marlborough schoolcash on-line payment program at www.burnaby.schoolcashonline.com, families can purchase one of our school mascots, a Husky! For only $10 a stuffed version of the Husky can be ordered. These will Only be available online, no cash or school orders will be accepted. Again, all of the proceeds will go to the Red Cross as part of the Marlborough school fundraiser.
