Spring Rock-a-thon!!!

Posted on Updated on

Event: Millennium MS Band Rock-a-thon

When: 9:00AM-5:00PM, Saturday, March 3, 2012

Where: Millennium MS Cafeteria

Why: To raise money towards student Fair Share Donation and Instrument Rental costs (AND to have a fun social event!!!)

How: Fill out the following/attached paperwork and attend!!!

Materials: Required: a chair to sit in for an extended period of time

Optional: snacks, games, music, books, movies, macramé, anything to pass the time

Special note: A popular activity for this event is to bring a TVs, video game consoles, or a DVD/Video player from home.  This is perfectly acceptable, provided the following:

  • All equipment is somehow marked with the student’s name
  • Students will need to bring extension cords and power strips, as there are a limited number of outlets in the cafeteria.
  • Students may bring games that are rated up to T for Teen and movies up to a PG rating (students may only watch PG movies with the appropriate section of the permission slip signed, per Seminole County requirements).


1) accounts are paid in full OR

2) bring a minimum of $10 towards their Fair Share/Instrument Rental !!!

(Sorry, no friends or siblings that are not in band @ Millennium)


8:00AM cafeteria opens to allow students to bring stuff and set-up

9:00AM begin “Rock-a-thon” (The name comes from past fundraisers where people rocked in rocking chairs for a long period of time to raise money for an organization or cause.  We will just sit in whatever chairs people bring!)

9AM-5PM Rock-a-thon!!! The following activities will be held during this time:

  • Video game tournaments (Rock Band, Guitar Hero, etc.)
  • Movie watching
  • Trivia Games
  • Langston FEAR FACTOR!!! (No animal guts will be served during this event, nor will anyone have to risk life or limb!)
  • Any other wacky activity we can think of!!!
  • No one will be allowed to sleep!!!  If a student nods off, Mr. Langston will visit …with crash cymbals in hand!!!

Parents: We will need chaperones for this event.  Parents typically do this event in shifts, so that no one has to stay for the whole event (unless, of course, you want to!).
