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.

Welcome Back! Concert Black Orders & Calendar Updated

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.

Custom Jacket & Sweatshirt Online Orders – Due 10/23/2016

This year’s custom sweatshirt and jacket orders are available for online purchase now through October 23, 2016.  You can also order hats, scarves and arm socks at this time.  This is a hard-stop date in order to have the customization completed and orders delivered before the last competitions.  Please see attached flyer for available options and information on how to order.  These are the same sweatshirts/jackets that we had customized last year.  Go online to https://titanband.itemorder.com Choose Item(s) and securely checkout with your credit card.

Friends & Family Campaign Extended to Monday, 9/26

We know that all of the fundraising, uniform purchasing, spirit wear and show shirt buying has been a bit overwhelming (it always is at the beginning of each year!) – so we are extending the Friends and Family Campaignone more week with form turn ins on Monday, 9/26.  All the students have to do is complete the pre-formatted form with addresses.  The section with the most participation will each win a Dutch Bros. gift card!

Concert Blacks Order – Due January 22

It is time to pull out your student’s concert blacks and double-check your sizes!  If you are a Freshman Parent, your student will need to order Concert Blacks for the Spring Concert Season.  ABBA places a group order, which provides a price break and saves on shipping costs.  You will not be able to order direct, so late orders will be subject to a separate shipping cost, at your expense. Band Parents and Uniform Managers will be at the school during class on Friday, 1/15 to help with measurements.  To ensure that each student has either confirmed that their current uniform fits, or they need to order a new uniform, every student will be required to complete an Order Form to be turned in to their uniform manager or emailed to Kim by January 22nd.
Payment will be due and payable to ABBA upon delivery of the uniform.
Cost:
Shirt and Pant: $40
Shirt Only: $15
Pant Only: $25
ABBA does not fund the cost of concert blacks – this is simply facilitated through ABBA.  If you need financial assistance, please contact Mr. Hodge directly.
