Lower Moreland High School THON[disambiguation needed] is a non-profit organization where the students of Lower Moreland High School come together to raise money for the four diamonds fund, a fund that sponsors a four diamond family who has a child fighting cancer, so they never have to see a bill in the child's' medical treatment. The LMHS THON is a smaller version of the dance marathon at Penn State. Most of the money comes from students raising it or companies that have donated it. Lower Moreland High School THON started in 2008. THON lasts for 12 hours or more, (since it is consistently changing and improving) where the students constantly are standing and are kept occupied by games and competitions so that the time goes by quickly.
The Lower Moreland Music High School music program has grown and flourished under the direction of Erin Stroup, Dr. Sarah Gulish, and Chelsea Dehner. Different bands, orchestras, and choirs exist at Lower Moreland High School.
