TMAC news for week of 12/1

Good evening TMAC families,
Welcome back!
*See’s Candy forms and money are due tomorrow, Monday. Please put the top part of the order form and all cash and checks in the envelope provided and have your student give to Mr. Soto. Checks need to be made out to TMAC.
*The Winter Extravaganza tickets will be available for purchase this week. General admission is $10 and VIP admission is $15 (first few rows.) Please send your cash or checks (made out to TMAC) with your student to Mr. Soto. The dates for the concert are December 17th and 18th. The program is the same for both evenings…in case you have a middle schooler with a conflicting concert.
*The Mattress Fundraiser is this Saturday, December 6th from 10:00am to 5:00pm.Mr. Soto will have the student volunteer sign ups available tomorrow. This is a fundraiser for the entire music department and all families and students are encouraged to participate.
*Finally as most of you know the football team won in nail biting overtime play on Friday night! This Friday San Clemente High School will host the CIF final football game against Trabuco High School. The marching band will go as a pep band like last week. TMAC will not be feeding the kids as there will not be practice after school. Mr. Soto will send out a call time. We will be having the taco stand. It is going to be a great opportunity to make some money as there will be a big, hopefully hungry, crowd.Please email me if you can work the early 4:30-7:00 or late 7:00-cleanup shift. We also need donations of cases of water and soda, and ice.
Have a great week and see you on Friday!

TMAC News for week of 11-16

Good evening TMAC families!
Congratulations TMA on a great marching band season! Next, on to Disneyland! No practice this week…Mr. Soto will announce when practice will resume for the performance at Disneyland.
**TMA will be going to the football game on Friday night at Foothill High School in Tustin! They will stop for dinner on the way so please send a bag dinner or money. Mr. Soto will send out an email with more information for Friday’s game.
**TMAC general meeting this Thursday night at 7pm in the band room. All band and orchestra parents are encouraged to attend. We will be discussing upcoming fundraisers.
We will also be briefly discussing the very successful 1st annual San Clemente High School Marching Band Competition. As this event is a fundraiser for the entire music department, we hope that next year all of the TMAC parents will become involved. Parents that volunteered, please bring (in writing) your observations from the event. We will be discussing the good and the things that need work, but please put it in writing just in case we don’t get to everyone’s comments. Or, email your thoughts to me!
Speaking of fundraisers… This week the See’s Candy Sale forms will be going home with your student. Please ask them for the form! I know in my case it would stay in their backpacks until they graduated if I didn’t ask for it! This is a great opportunity to support the music department and purchase delicious See’s candy for your family, friends, coworkers, employees, or yourself for the holidays!
**Saturday December 6th is our 2nd annual Mattress sale. We did very well last year and hope to do the same this year! All music program students will be encouraged to participate. The company that presents this event uses great motivation with the kids to get out there and sell, cold hard cash! More to come…
**Wednesday December 17th and Thursday December 18th is the Winter Extravaganza. This is a performance by all of the music and choir classes. It is also a fundraiser for both groups. Tickets will be available to purchase and TMAC (music dept.) will be holding a bake sale. We will be looking for donations of baked goods and water bottles, and also volunteers to work both evenings. You will be hearing more about this in the next weeks.
Looking forward to seeing you all on Thursday night!
