The TPMS Band has been asked to participate in this year’s Poway Invitational Field Tournament (PIFT) at Poway High. This annual tournament is held in the PHS football stadium. It is a showcase and competition for regional marching bands. Visit the PIFT 2017 page on the Poway High School Music Boosters website for more information about PIFT.

TPMS Band raises funds for our own program by selling water, candy and snacks to visitors. For this to be successful we need student and parent volunteers as well as donations of items to sell. 100% of proceeds go directly to TPMS band!

TPMS Band will run two Candy Shacks on visitor and home sides of the stadium. Student and parents can volunteer for a shift or shifts in the Candy Shack. All volunteers will be admitted to PIFT for free, and will be able to watch the field shows before and after their shift. I will email check-in and parking information to all volunteers prior to the event.

Please visit the link to volunteer at the candy shack.

We are requesting donations:

Please visit the link to pledge your contribution. Items should be dropped off in the TPMS Band Room on or before Wednesday, October 18.

As an alternative to donating items, you can donate money ($5 suggested) for purchasing candy and ice. Please put your monetary donation in a sealed envelope labeled “PIFT”, and give it to Mr. Moreau. Checks should me made out to “TPMS Band Boosters”.

Middle School Night at the Poway HS Football Game

Friday, October 20, 2017

5:45 PM Call Time ** Non-Mandatory Event **
Dress: Green shirt (PHS colors), blue jeans, tennis/althletic shoes

All TPMS Band students are invited to join the Poway High School Marching Band at a home football game (Poway vs. Vista HS) on Friday, October 20. Our band students will meet the PHS Band at their Band Room (Room N-1). The combined bands will warm up together and then they will all march into the stadium (about 6:30-6:40 PM). They will sit with the high schoolers in the PHS Band bleacher section during the first half, and then watch the Emerald Brigade’s 2017 halftime field show. The students can leave with their parents after halftime, or they can stay and play with the PHS Pep Band until the game is over as long as their parents are present in the stadium. They will not be supervised after halftime.

Mr. Moreau will be leaving directly after the Emerald Brigade performance at halftime and will walk the middle school students back to the PHS Band Room. Students must be picked up from the PHS Band Room only. They will not be allowed to wait in front of the school or anywhere else. Parents, if you want your son or daughter to perform with the PHS Pep Band after halftime, then you will be responsible for them at that time and you  will need sit in the stands near the PHS Band sectionon to supervise your student and to meet them at the end of the game.

Here’s important information about the event:

  1. Students may stay and watch the game BUT ONLY if their parent(s) are present and in contact with them in the stadium. If they stay, the kids can continue to sit in the Band section and play with the PHS Pep Band, as long as their parents are close enough to supervise them.
  2. Students can return to the Band Room to go home BUT ONLY if they are accompanied by their parents or they have made arrangements with their parents to pick them up at the Band Room. Mr. Moreau will be leaving the stadium immediately after the PHS Band field show to escort those TPMS students whose parents are picking them up after halftime. He will take the students directly to the PHS Band Room where they must be picked up by their parents. They will not be allowed to wait in front of the school or anywhere else
