Local Band, TPT, to Perform Benefit Concert for CCPTSA

Local band, TPT, will perform a Family Friendly Rock Concert on Friday, April 15th from 7:30 to 9 p.m. in the Persell Middle School auditorium. The Jamestown City Council Parent Teacher Student Association (CCPTSA) will host the concert. Funds raised will be used to provide selected JHS seniors with scholarships to further their education and other CCPTSA programs that enhance the education of Jamestown Public School students. Tickets for the concert are available from any JPS PTA and TPT band member. Pre-Sale tickets are $5 Adults and $3 for students/kids.  Tickets will also be available at the door for an additional $1.

In addition to the JHS teachers that are band members, there will be guest appearance by other Jamestown Public Schools’ faculty along with a performance by Persell Middle School fifth graders.  

TPT started as a band whose sole purpose was to play a fundraiser for the JHS Class of 2012. The band consists of local musicians and community members; Jay Baehr, Justin Joyner, Adam Rohler, Don Volpe, Scott Lumia, and Michael Tuccio. As soon as the band’s first fundraiser was over, they began getting other offers and requests. The band has since played the Bergman Park Labor Day Festival, Onofest, numerous fundraisers for everything from local sports teams to Kallie’s Krusade. TPT continues to expand its musical repertoire and loves to entertain audiences of all ages. TPT can be followed on Facebook and Twitter.

“TPT was asked to help out the local PTA and we’re excited to lend a hand,” said band member and Jamestown High School teacher, Mike Tuccio. “We’ve never played Persell School before, which is also a bonus. It’s always cool to perform in a new venue and we’re really excited for this show. It’s going to be a family-friendly event, and we hope people come out to support the cause and sing along with us.” 

CCPTSA is an organization comprised of members from the nine Jamestown Public School PTA/PTSA’s, the JPS Superintendent, administrative staff, and the Board of Education.  As an organization, CCPTSA fosters high ethical standards in the schools by enhancing the education and general well-being of the students in the district. In addition to providing scholarship(s) to graduating JHS seniors, CCPTSA promotes school and community advocacy along with family involvement. CCPTSA supports PARP (Parents as Reading Partners) and “Reflections,” a creative arts program. These are just a few of the many areas that CCPTSA is involved; all of which encourage growth and enrichment among our students.

The success of this CCPTSA event is only possible with involvement from the community.  Jamestown Hydroponics, Lifetouch School Portraits, Allied Alarm Services, and AM Suchar Accountants are generously sponsoring this event.
