We need you to serve as a member of the PBPA Board! The PBPA, or Band Boosters, play a vital role in helping the Pearson Band program run.

School-Owned Instrument Return


On Tuesday May 9th, all school-owned instruments must be returned to Pearson Middle School to prepare for our annual audit and so the instruments can be checked for any needed repairs.


Students continuing in band at Pearson Middle School will be issued an instrument for summer use. School-owned instruments include: Oboe, Bassoon, Bass Clarinet, Tenor Saxophone, Bari Saxophone, French Horn, Euphonium, and Tuba.


All other instruments should be kept over the summer (if continuing in band) or returned to the music store you are renting from (if not continuing in band). These instruments include: Flute, Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone, and Percussion (practice marimba).


We will continue to play in class through Wednesday May 17th. Store rental returns for kids not continuing can begin on Thursday May 18th.


Please contact the band directors if you have any questions.
