• Chaperones NEEDED!!!!

    Each year during full day marching band rehearsals, we ask that parent volunteers come in and chaperone throughout the day. This basically consists of hanging out near where the majority of kids are & being available to help with basic first aid (bandages, ice packs). 

    On competition days we need 2 chaperones per bus (we take 2 buses) that will stay with the group during the entire time at the competition site, making sure kids are where they should be, helping with uniforms, props, or anything else that may be needed.

  • Winter Guard Starts off STRONG!

    Winter Guard Starts off STRONG!

    Both teams started off their season on January 26th at Plainfield after the cancellation of the January 19th event due to inclement weather. This season the JV team consists of 9 members with a show titled Warrior, Conquer from Within. They brought home a GOLD!

    The varsity team consists of 12 members this year, and their show is titled Caged. They placed 8th overall out of 16. We couldn't be more proud of what both teams accomplished in their first competition. Varsity travels to Anderson on February 2nd, and JV has a short break from competition until March 16th. Way to go, Marauders!

  • Mattress sale brings big bucks

    Mattress sale brings big bucks

    Yesterday, Custom Fundraising Solutions gave the band a check for $6,750 for last month's mattress sale. It's not a record amount, but it's still nothing to sneeze at!

  • Band yearbook available online

    What has become an annual tradition is now available online. The 2017-2018 Band of Marauders yearbook can be viewed here. You will have to sign up for Shutterfly to purchase the book; doing so is free.

    Yes, the book is a bit pricey (more than $100). That’s why you want to wait until Shutterfly has a 50 percent off sale. Sales will be announced through the band’s Facebook and Twitter accounts.

    Last year’s yearbook (for 2016-2017) is available here. It can still be ordered. Again, wait until a 50 percent off sale is announced.

  • Varsity winter guard qualifies for IHSCGA state finals!

    For the second year in a row, Mt. Vernon hosted an Indiana High School Color Guard Association competition--except this time, instead of an invitational, it was the state preliminaries for A Class teams. The event on March 3 featured four rounds, with 34 competitors. Also, a team of special-needs students, Destiny, performed in exhibition.

    Of the 34 teams, only 16 moved on to the A Class state finals March 17. The Mt. Vernon varsity winter guard competed in the fourth round and finished in the top 16, locking in a trip to the state finals at Center Grove High School in Greenwood. This is the fourth year in a row that the varsity team has advanced to A Class state finals.

    This coming Saturday, the Mt. Vernon junior varsity winter guard will compete in IHSCGA's state finals for Divisional Regional A Class at Center Grove. Good luck, team!

    Thanks to director Thomas Thawley and his staff for all their hard work!

    The varsity winter guard performs its 2018 show, "See ME," at the A Class state preliminaries March 3 at Mt. Vernon.
