To 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 event was a celebration of music and our kids! We were very successful in achieving this year's goal - a profit of $3,031 from dinner sales and donations will provide the funds to repair old instruments and to purchase supplies, music, and new instruments. Thanks to the efforts and generosity of TPMS Band families, we had a VERY successful day at the 2016 TPMS Band PIFT Candy Shacks on Saturday, October 15!
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.
