Pasadena Preparation:

  • REMIND 101: ALL full package travelers, which includes Students, Adults, Chaperones and Staff attending the Pasadena Trip need to sign up for the MPLT Pride to Pasadena Remind 101. People attending the trip as a “Tag Along” do not need to sign up! This Remind 101 is managed by the directors, used exclusively for the Pride to Pasadena trip as a means of sending real time updates, reminders, adjustments to the itinerary, or any other need to send out emergency information. To sign up, text the message @mpltrose to the number 81010.
  • UNIFORM PREPARATION AND FITTINGS: We are getting uniforms cleaned up and ready for our kids to be on National TV, and need parent help on Saturday, December 10.  If you can, please come into the uniform room (off the LC band room) on Saturday morning.  Many hands make light work.  No special skills needed, just willing assistants!  Questions? Contact Kim Earl at
  • All marchers need a uniform fitting (see times below) and garment bag prep before the trip.
    • Students need to bring 2 pairs of clean black socks to the fitting to put in their garment bag.  (Please note that all black socks found in garment bags were removed for washing and not returned.)  Students will not need to stay the entire fitting time. 
    • Volunteers are needed for the fitting times, please click the following link to volunteer:  Even if you can’t stay for the whole time, there will be tasks we could use assistance with while your students are being fitted.  Please, come in and lend a hand for a few minutes!  Thank you!

Wednesday, Dec 14, 5:30-8:30pm
Thursday, Dec 15, 5:30-8:30pm
