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!
