Director Gifts

This has been a CRAZY year, and through it all, our Directors have persevered, regrouped, and thrown so much effort and creativity into making things a success. Despite all the setbacks!

Please help us show our appreciation with a donation toward their end-of-year gifts. If you would like to participate, please send in cash or check (made payable to PBPA) in an envelope marked Director Gifts. Have your student place the envelope in the white lock box in the band room. If your students are still virtual, donations can be mailed to Karen Anderson at 2118 Hadfield Court, Marietta, 30062.

Donations must be received by Friday, May 14.

Tuxedo Return

Now that life is starting look a little more normal, it’s time to wrap up some loose ends of the last crazy year. It’s so exciting to anticipate an in-person concert season next year, but before we can begin to get everyone fitted and looking fine, we have to have all of those tuxedos cleaned and returned. Beginning May 3, tuxedos may be brought to the band room and hung on the appropriate rack. The deadline for return is Friday, May 14. As an added incentive for our seniors, diplomas may be withheld if tuxedos are not returned! (We really don’t want to do that so please, please, please get them in on time!) Even if you have a returning student, the tuxedo must be returned so that the fit can be checked in the fall. 

Before you return your tux, you must do the following:
  • Make sure you are returning the actual tuxedo pants – Yep, sometimes we get plain pants instead of fancy pants!
  • Remove the hem – If the pants have been shortened, they need to come back to school unhemmed and ready for the next person to use them.
  • Have the pants and jacket professionally dry cleaned – Tuxedos must be returned in the drycleaner plastic with the receipt attached.
  • Write the students name clearly on the receipt – You’ll want to make sure we record your return to the right person!
If you have any questions, feel free to contact Cyndy Dixon at or text 573-416-3334. Thank you so much for following these steps and helping us to assure that every student looks their very best next year!
Congratulations on an incredible spring marching season and to the Class of 2021!
