Welcome to the Fall 2017 Marching Season! The calendar has been updated to include all scheduled events for Fall 2017, including Football Games, Super Saturday rehearsals, and Field Competitions. The PT Avenue calendar is located here.
As we start the marching season, we are looking for a golf cart, to replace the one that we had been using to bring equipment on and off the field during competitions. We are raising money to purchase a new golf cart. Donations can be accepted through Pay Pal; please visit the Donate tab for instruction on how to donate to the band. If you know someone who is willing to donate a golf cart, please contact the ABBA President, Kim Bymers.
We are also accepting donations to help support the band program throughout the school year. A suggested donation of $212 per student would help to fund the band program and would lessen the amount of fundraising needed throughout the year. Please consider making a donation by clicking on the Donate tab.

Welcome to Spring 2017 Concert Season! The calendar has been updated to include all scheduled events for Spring 2017. Please visit our Calendar Page and sinc up your calendars – any changes should then automatically update to your personal calendar. Concert Blacks order forms are due Wednesday, 1/25/17. The first concert is March 4 – this gives us very little time to order and receive, so please check your student’s current concert blacks and submit your order on time. There will not be a second order placed.

Our own Jeff Blanchard did another amazing job on the band photos – group and section photos are now available for purchase! The 2016 photos can be seen at Cluster.co. The album can be accessed at https://cluster.co/i/6P6WZGX6 . Cluster requires that you create an account to see the photos. This is done to protect the privacy of your child and all the others in the band and guard. Canvas Prints may take up to 3 weeks for delivery. Please complete the attached ORDER FORM and turn into any ABBA Board Member. Question? Contact Crystal Rea at firstname.lastname@example.org

Letters from the Front will take you on an emotional journey as a Soldier of War carries you through his story. Join us on Saturday evening at Oakmont H.S. This is the closest event to home.
