Welcome Back, Titan Parents! 2017-2018 Marching Season is Here!

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.

Titan Tritan Tumblers Fundraising Campaign – Due 9/2/16

Your students should have brought home a packet for the Tritan Tumblers.  These are the same cups that sell at Bed Bath & Beyond – for the same price – and can help fund-raise money for your student’s program (and tour!)   The students are in their own competition within their sections, but they can also earn a personalized Titan Band & Guard Sweatshirt by selling at least 20 tumblers.  Fundraiser needs to be turned in to ABBA on Friday, 9/2 at the football game.

Fireworks Scrip Sales – Pre-Order Now!

It is almost time for our biggest fundraiser of the year..Fireworks!! Our booth will again be in the Walmart Parking lot on Antelope Road, next to Home Depot.
To jump start our fundraising efforts the students will be selling firework scrip. Scrip is like buying a gift card at the store but it can only be used at our fireworks booth this year.  The scrip will be sold in $10.00 denominations, students will collect orders/money and turn into ABBA. The student will then be given the “scrip” to distribute to family, friends, neighbors or anyone else you can think of that buys fireworks each year.
Scrip is like cash, when they come to the fireworks booth and because it is like cash they can be combined.
Why sell someone scrip if you already know they are going to come to our booth?
Scrip guarantees that when they purchase their fireworks that they will come to our booth. Some will buy scrip even if they are not buying fireworks this year, just to support the band! and most that use scrip at our booth generally will spend more.
Lets start our fundraising out right for next year. Our goal, each student to sell a minimum of 10~ really not that hard to do since most everyone love Fireworks!!
Scrip sales will be the first few weeks of May and students can turn in at the concert on May 6th and the Awards night on May 18th or anytime to the ABBA mailbox in the office (checked regularly)
Click HERE for the Scrip Order form and purchase Scrip today!
