Please support the Mount Pleasant Band and Winterguard Program.
At Mount Pleasant High School, our goal every year is to run a first-class Band and Winterguard program. To do that, we need your help. Our funding from the school district gives us a good start but does not cover everything we need to perform and repair our instruments. This fundraiser will help us to offset the cost of the expenses associated with running a quality Band and Winterguard program. I want to give our students the best opportunity to succeed and create as many new memories as possible while in the MP Band. We are asking for your assistance to help make this possible. Any donation is greatly appreciated and a tax-deductible receipt will be issued for your support.
A message from Director Bart Tulbert...
The Mount Pleasant High School band has renewed its strong tradition of excellence in performing, both on the field as well as off. We are a band filled with superior musicians and consistently receive superior ratings and first place caption awards at local, regional, and national competitions. We can all agree that the MP Band inspires school spirit, enhances our community image, and augments student learning. The opportunity to experience the thrill of performance is something that the students will remember all their lives. Some of our recent accomplishments include:
~ Grand Champion at the following marching band competitions - North Davidson, North Lincoln, Mooresville,
~ 1st place in the areas of marching, music, general effect, drum major, guard, and percussion.
~ In addition to MP Band, we have students participating in the Charlotte Youth Ensemble, Charlotte Youth Symphony, several drum and bugle corps, independent winter drum lines, Winterguard, county and district bands.
As you know, the school district provides some funds for the band program’s needs. However, there are simply not enough funds in their budget to support all of the budgeted expenses for our Band and Winterguard program. Much of the money we use for operating a successful program comes from donations received from students’ families, fundraisers, and donations from community leaders and businesses. The funds raised through this fundraising campaign will directly pay for our Band and Winterguard program and our budgeted costs for the students. Any donation, no matter the size, is greatly appreciated and a receipt will be issued for your tax records.
Thank you for your continued support of the Mount Pleasant High School Band.
Director Bart Tulbert
