PMS Music Panthers Challenge

September 2022




Dear PMS Music Families,

The Pleasanton Middle School Bands, Orchestras and Choir, in coordination with the PMS Music Boosters, are conducting our Panthers Challenge to enhance and provide much needed support for our program. The expenses for maintaining a quality program are considerable, especially as our program continues to grow. Funds raised will benefit our program by helping offset expenses for purchasing new instruments, instrument repairs, sheet music, festival feels, trip fees, clinicians, music software, and other supplemental items for our program.

Please see the attached slides and flier for more detailed information about this fundraiser. Students were given the ​directions and letters to take home today. If you choose to participate, please return the letters and email sign-ups by Monday, September 26th. 

Please note that all fundraisers are optional, however, we appreciate all willing participants and contributors to this fundraiser.
