President, Andrea Ward

Thank you to all those who have signed up for PIMBA. If you have not signed up yet, please do! We need at least one person from each family to help.


We do not know the order of bands for championships. The marketplace and concessions will shut down for Moon’s performance so you should be able to see your students perform.


We have the Park N Ride off of University for PIMBA. We are still in need of parking crew please. We will not be receiving help from Pitt or RMU this year due to prior commitments.


Senior Rec-

Looking for an announcer for that night. Tim Palmer was volunteered. Still in need of a cafeteria worker, they are looking into it.


FB Group & Social Media-

  • We will be adding moderators to the fb group page. Please know that if you are posting anything, you may not see it right away, until approved. All post must be positive or productive please.
  • Please do not post any video at all, on any social media site until championships are over please.


Our greenery fundraiser is going on now through November 7th.


After PIMBA we will start planning our Pancake Breakfast/Cookie Walk. This is a fun event and we need lots of help.

Pink Out this Friday. The band kids will have pink ribbons on their uniforms.
