Spring Concert & Awards Night
On Thursday May 20th, the PGHS Marching/Concert Band will be holding our annual Spring Concert outdoors in the beautiful socially distanced quad of Pleasant Grove High School. Students are to wear their red 20-21 band shirts/shorts as it will be outside and quite warm. In addition to the music, there will be senior awards and recognition to conclude the evening. All in attendance must wear a mask (including performers and director) and maintain social distancing of 3 ft from family to family. We are very excited to be able to have this event after our year of pandemic/distant learning. Please fill out the google form below with the number of attendees for your student as it is important that we have an accurate head count. There will be chairs available, but there is also a nice grass area if you would like to bring a blanket and/or camping chairs. If your student is not participating in the concert please do not fill out the google form. Please contact Mr. Souliere if you have any questions. Thank You. https://forms.gle/D6J9nH3sM8ef2XBd9
The Band Boosters Need You!
If you are a parent or guardian of a student in the music or related programs at PGHS, we need your help! We would like to invite you to join our booster board! There's a lot to be done to get our band program back up running like normal again. The more parents we can get involved, the sooner we will recover. Please consider nominating yourself or someone you know for the Band Boosters Board. All positions are open. Descriptions of each job can be found on our Bylaws page. No experience necessary. http://www.pghsbandboosters.org/bylaws.html . Please check us out at our final Band Boosters Meeting on Monday, May 24, 2021 at 7 PM over Zoom. We need your help to bring all the activities back for our kids and this great music program!
We May Owe You Money!
If your student participated in Band Fundraisers in the past few years, chances are, they have money saved up in their Band Student Savings Account. Students may utilize funds from their account to cover expenses related to music education, equipment purchases and travel, as long as the student is continuously participating in the PGHS music or related programs (e.g., Winter Percussion, Color Guard). A transfer or check request form signed by the parent or legal guardian is required for disbursement of monies from student accounts. Checks will be made payable to students or their parent/guardian only in repayment of an already-incurred expense and a copy of the receipt will be required.
Upon leaving the music or related program or graduating from PGHS, student savings account funds may be transferred to a sibling, if the sibling is to continue participating in the music or related program. Otherwise, all unused money in the student’s individual account will be transferred to the Band Booster’s Student Assistance Fund at the beginning of the school year following the student’s departure.
Any money owed to the PGHS Music Program or fundraising event will be deducted first from the Student Account before requests for reimbursement of music-related expenses will be honored. Please contact us at PGHSBandBoosters@gmail.com to find out what the balance is. Then you can send in the following form to request a transfer or reimbursement. Please request reimbursement by May 20, 2021.
Band T-Shirt Distribution
The Boosters have printed band t-shirts for the 2020-2021 school year. Students attending in person have already received theirs. Mr. Souliere will announce how the DL students can pick up their shirts. They will be wearing them for the Spring Concert.

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.
