Band Boosters Board Election
Spring is coming and there are signs that people are starting to come out of their homes and head back to school or play. A full year without band activities has been difficult on everyone. We have not been able to hold any performances or fundraising events. We will need several Band parents to help guide us back on track for 2021-22 school year and beyond. Please consider nominating yourself or someone you know for the Band Boosters Board. All positions are open. Nominations will be open on March 25 at our Band Boosters Parent Meeting at 7 pm. Descriptions of each job can be found on our Bylaws page. http://www.pghsbandboosters.org/bylaws.html . The election will be held at our final General Band Boosters Meeting on May 20 at 7 pm. We need your help to support our kids and this great music program!
Donors Choose - Still Accepting Donations!
DonorsChoose is a program that connects community donors to teachers and classrooms. The PGHS Music Program would like to purchase a 4-Valve Euphonium. Please check out our project and see if you could help. We still need about $3000 to fully fund this project. Click on the following link:
Bridging the Gap
The 4 Valve Euphonium will be used in all our music programs. The Marching Band, Concert Band and Wind Ensemble will benefit from this new instrument. It bridges the gap of sound between the high and low brass. It is typically more expensive than smaller instruments (flutes, clarinets, trumpets) and students rarely have their own so the school must provide.
It is a versatile instrument that reads in both bass and treble clef, so it gives trumpet, tuba, and trombone students another opportunity to fill out the lower section of sound in the band.
You may donate any time until March 21, 2021. There are occasional matching opportunities through DonorsChoose and we will try to alert our supporters, or you may check with your employers about matching donations.
Mr. Souliere and the Students at PGHS Band thank you for your support!
Band T-Shirt Distribution
Due to additional precautions, we have been advised to cancel the T-shirt pick up scheduled for tomorrow evening.
We, the PG Band Boosters or Mr. Souliere will keep you informed once another distribution date is available.

Help Our Music Program!
Help us build a great music program for your kids! Our School District provides the instructor, space, and basic equipment for a music program, but we have to raise the money for nearly everything else. Funds are needed for music purchase, instrument repairs and maintenance, uniform purchase and alterations, competition fees, clinicians, travel expenses, trailer expenses, etc. The Pleasant Grove High Band Boosters is a State of California 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation and all donations to the band program are tax-deductible.
