The PMMU 2020 Leadership application window is now open. All applications must be submitted to Mr. Johnson by 11:59pm on Friday, May 1.
The attached document contains all the instructions for the application process. Have fun and be GREAT!
As the Penn Manor community continues to rally together during this unprecedented time, I’d like to give a few reminders as we move forward:
Any students who need to retrieve their instruments from the high school should contact Mr. Johnson. An appointment will then be set up with students/parents and school admin to enter the building and retrieve the instrument(s). Please do not contact the HS office because the message may not be received.
Wind players, you will want to have your marching instrument at home so you can stay fresh with the exercises that will be shared in the very near future. Percussionists, if you need sticks or mallets, you can borrow some from the band room. Parents or students need to contact Mr. Johnson directly so instrument retrieval meetings can be set up. Thank you!
I’m sad to announce that PMMU will not be participating in the Baltimore St. Patrick parade on Sunday. However, considering the current state of the state of global concern, this should not come as a surprise. Student safety is always the district’s top priority, and the decision for PMMU not to perform is driven by keeping our students safe.
Parade rehearsal is cancelled for tonight, however the regular indoor rehearsal will continue as scheduled. Take the time tonight and Sunday to invest in personal practice and musical growth. Just because society around us slows and looks different at the current moment, doesn’t mean we need to stop reaching for excellence and pursing the greater good. Let’s take our unfortunate situation and rise above.
It’s MU homecoming weekend and time for the Millersville Parade! PMMU will be marching in section “B” for this year’s parade (sections span A-E). The parade kicks off at 9:00am and travels up Herr Ave, left on Landis Ave, left on George St. and finishes by the Student Memorial Center at Millersville University. Students will be walking back to PMHS after the parade to change out of uniforms and put equipment away. Here are some key times:
Parking – please do not park in the normal PMHS parking lot for marching band. Students and chaperones need to park under the parking deck or back by the old tennis courts.
