AnnouncementsTo all who attended the Seventh Annual Pizza Dinner Fundraiser on Saturday, May 20, thank you so much for your support. A special thanks goes to Mr. Moreau and the TPMS Jam Band, Jazz Band, and Jazz Ensemble for entertaining us, and to the students and parents who volunteered to help before, during, and after the dinner! Also, soda, ice, dessert, and raffle prize donations from Band families were much appreciated. The annual Twin Peaks Middle School Jazz Night will be held on Wednesday, May 25. Three TPMS jazz groups and PHS Jazz Bands A, B, and C are featured in a program that spans the jazz spectrum. Everyone is invited to this FREE informal festival-style concert on the TPMS Quad! Bring a picnic dinner, blankets, lawn chairs, and sunglasses. The TPMS Band Boosters will be selling water, sodas, snacks, and candy.
This will be a great night for music. All TPMS bands should stay and listen to the PHS jazz bands. The concert will be over by 8:00 PM.
TPMS Jam Band musicians should wear Outdoor Concert Dress: White TPMS Band polo shirt or Jazz Band T-shirt, blue jeans, and sneakers.

TPMS Band volunteers in the Candy Shacks at this year's Poway Invitational Field Tournament (PIFT) at Poway High also got to watch field shows performed by 17 regional marching bands, including Poway High's Emerald Brigade. Thank you parents and students for all your hard work!
Our two Candy Shacks sold almost 1,200 items! Because donations from our generous TPMS Band families covered most of the merchandise expenses, $1,144 went directly to our Band program!
We'd also like to thank the Poway High School Music Boosters for allowing us to host the PIFT Candy Shacks again this year. PIFT is a major fundraiser for the TPMS Band, plus it gives our kids a great introduction to the excitement of field tournaments. We greatly appreciate their support.
Wow! TPMS Band families and friends enjoyed $4,000 in tacos and other Mexican specialties at both El Ranchito Taco Shops on October 5th and 6th. Their efforts brought in $800 for the TPMS Band program. Show your appreciation to El Ranchito for their support by making the Taco Shop a regular stop for your family!
Members of our band got to warm up, march, and play with the Poway High School Emerald Brigade at a PHS home football game on Friday, October 14. The TPMS Band thanks the PHS Band, Boosters, and music directors for giving them the opportunity to participate in this event.
