The wireless mics used by the Grafton School District need to be replaced as the frequency they run on has been sold by the FCC. If we purchase new mics before April 30, 2018 we will receive an $8,000 rebate.

The cost for these new mics will total $50,000.

At our next concert is Saturday, March 3 at 7 PM in the GHS Auditorium, and we will be having a bake sale to help run funds for the mics.  

Here's a link to sign up for the bake sale. 

The Grafton Music Parents Association has also started a fundraising campaign for this project.

Donations are tax deductible! Use our Go Fund Me page or if donating by check, make it payable to Grafton Music Parents and give it to your student(s)’ music teacher. Grafton Music Parents will issue a receipt for your donation.

Go Fund Me Link: gf.me/u/g2zuwz

The mics in our district are used for the following events:

  • Elementary School performances and events

  • John Long Middle School musicals

  • High School Performing Arts Productions (all plays, musicals, and concerts!)

  • High School curricular use

  • Rented events and/or community functions

  • District meetings and functions.

    Thank you for your support!  Check the Grafton website:  www.grafton.k12.wi.us for upcoming performances and come out to enjoy a show!
