Show Shirts and Logo Clothing

Do you have a student in one of our three fall performing groups?
We are now taking pre-orders for show shirts for each of the three fall performing groups!  Show shirts are $15 each, and are available in S, M, L, XL, and XXL (adult sizes only).

There are two ways that you can pre-order your shirts:
1) Pay online via DSMA website. You can fill out the quantity of each show shirt you want by filling out the text fields IN FULL and paying online on the Student Payments page on the DSMA website. There are separate sections for Winds, Guard, and Percussion shirts. Please be sure to fill them out with your student’s name, the total quantity of shirts your family wants, and the amount of each size that you would like (example: Student Name, 2 Medium 1 Large). If you are ordering shirts from multiple performing groups, just list the sizes that you would like in the appropriate sections when filling out the form.
2) Pay via check or cash. You can fill out this Google Form and put the check or cash in an envelope with your student’s name on it along with “Show Shirt Money” and have your student place it in the black DSMA box in the music office. The Google Form will email us with your name and shirt order when you submit it, so you don’t need to worry about printing it out and putting it in the envelope with the money.

If you pre-order and pay online through the DSMA website, you do not need to fill out the Google Form. Only cash/check orders need to fill out the Google Form so we can have an accurate count of how many shirts we need to order for each group. Once pre-ordering is complete, we will have a LIMITED number of additional shirts available.  This is to ensure that we are able to keep overall costs down.  To guarantee that your family has the show shirts they want, be sure to pre-order now!  If you have any questions, please contact Russ Benoit. DEADLINE FOR PRE-ORDERS IS SUNDAY OCTOBER 17.

Logo Clothing Update
Mr. Flint has had a new logo designed for the music department, and the various performing groups within it, to be used on all logo clothing orders. The new logo has just come in from the designer, and we are working on getting a logo clothing order ready for everyone. We’ll send out ordering information as soon as it’s ready, and we appreciate everyone’s patience while we prepare things for an order for this year’s
group.

Students must sell ads in 3 of their 4 years in high school to qualify for DSMA scholarships, so if your student has not sold one yet this year, you still have the opportunity!

2019 Corporate Sponsorships Are Now Available!

2019 sponsorships for our marching band and indoor groups is now open for enrollment!

In 2018, tens of thousands of people throughout New England and the east coast all the way to Dayton, OH saw the logos of our corporate sponsors on our trucks as they traveled to competitions. All three of our show shirts also featured logos from our sponsors, and those shirts have proudly been worn all over the world (yes, the world!).

An organization the size of ours relies heavily on fundraising and the support of our community, and our sponsorship program helps us proudly display the logos of businesses who value the role music education and performance plays in our public schools.

Also, families who sign up corporate sponsors will receive a 25% assessment per sponsorship that they sign up! WOW! 

For more information about making a tax-deductible donation, please visit our Sponsorship page right now. Sponsorship is only open for enrollment until January 31, 2019!!
