Enjoy a delicious spaghetti dinner while listening to student performances by strings, choir, and jazz band students.
Fun door prizes will be given out, and we will be offering some fantastic silent-auction items! You can bid on Segway tours; gift certificates for hotel stays, restaurants, stores, salons, and spas; private wine tastings; tickets to the theater, symphony, ballet, museum, and theme parks; and more!
We will also have a bake sale and will be selling gently used books, DVDs, and video games. Donations for our sale or auction are welcome and appreciated. Students can bring books, DVDs, and video games to their music classes starting the week of Jan. 29. These items can also be brought the night of Noodles & Notes. To help us prepare for the bake sale, please sign up to bring baked goods.
Adult, student, and family/household presale tickets can be ordered now. Or complete the ticket order form, and return it with your payment by Thursday, Feb. 1 to the HP Music Boosters mailbox in the band room or the Harvest Park school office. Tickets at the door will cost $5 extra per person.
If you missed our first-ever swap event at the Sept. 11 meeting or would like to sell/trade band and strings equipment and clothing, check out the Pleasanton Band & Strings Swap and Sell Facebook group, which was created by one of our HP music parents.
Order an HP Music T-shirt for your student to wear to show school spirit at Harvest Park. This is also a great shirt for the upcoming 8th-grade band student outing to the Sept. 29 Amador football game!
Online orders will be open through the evening of Wednesday, Sept. 13. T-shirt orders will be available again in early 2018 in case any students would like HP Music T-shirts for the spring Disney Music Workshop trip.
We are starting a new tradition of an HP Music Concert Attire Swap!
Bring your student’s gently used dress shoes, pants, shirts, skirts, and dresses to the Sept. 11 HP Music Parent Meeting, and pick up those that fit.
Please clearly label the size of your item(s). Bring the item(s) to the meeting, and drop them off at the Swap Table. Then pick up an item or two after the meeting.
Come learn what this year has in store for the Harvest Park Music Department at the Music Family Information Night on Monday, Sept. 11, from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Harvest Park MPR (note room change).
Mr. Perazzo will talk about upcoming events, fundraisers, and the spring Disney Music Workshop trip. You can learn more about how HPMB donations will start helping our music students. This year’s HPMB budget will also be presented.
In the summer of 2017, we launched our “Off-to-a-Great-Start Campaign” to raise funds to cover the Music Department’s expenses, which include purchasing sheet music and school instruments, as well as paying for school instrument repairs and music festival fees. Any donations are greatly appreciated.
