Help Ward's Wards Compete in Showdown Montclair!

Ward's Wards
Ward's Wards

Glenfield Middle School Music Maestro, Jonathan Ward has the superhero ability to teach hundreds of students everything from jazz tunes to orchestral music.  And if you've seen his shows, he also nurtures some budding comedians!

Mr. Ward is proudly taking the stage with a few of his students who'll represent the legions of young musicians that Ward has nurtured along the way.  Ward and our district's team of music teachers give our kids an incredible gift, and your donations help MFEE enrich their work. 

Support this magical music teacher and arts programming in our schools with a donation to their act!


We have raised $1,700.00 of our goal.
