Christmas Concert Reschedule  

With a very full calendar for the students and the auditorium, the only time we have to reschedule the concert is this Thursday night at 8:00 PM.  The call time will be 7:30 for the students.  Thank you for understanding and we'll see you on the 13th!


Check the board in the Band Hall!  

As we go through the semester, it is vital that everyone is aware of and adheres to our rehearsal and performance schedule.  Just a reminder that all rehearsals and performances are mandatory for ALL band members.  Each person has a unique assignment and when they are not there the people around them can't function as needed.  We rely on each other to be the best band that we can be.

I have placed dates of importance on the Band Room white board for the next month (and will update it through out the year) so that band students can see and take note of everything that we are doing.  Required attendance dates are in red.  The dates are listed on the calendar area of the this web page, as well, for your convenience.

This year is going to be a wonderful year for the JCHS band.  Let's participate to the fullest to make it great!


Band Booster Meeting  

We will have a Band Parent meeting on Monday, December 11 at 7:00 in the HS Band Room.  This meeting will be to review fundraising from the fall and determine how the Boosters need to proceed for activities in the Spring.   Check out the Jefferson County High School Band Booster Face Book page. (Make sure it's not the one in Kentucky!)  You can get quick information there about the "Sign up genius" to help with chaperoning, concession, etc. as well as updates on calendar events, congratulations, funny stuff, or whatever. 

 

 


Additions to Forms and Files  

The Summer Band Camp information letter is now posted on the forms section of this web page.  It is in pdf format and can be downloaded for your information and planning purposes. The following forms are now up to date and are ready for download.  Please, fill them out and bring them to band camp with you. (You do not need to bring the Guidlines, just the commitment to excellence saying you have read it.)

Information Form

Committment to Excellence

Medical Affidavit (Please, print but DO NOT sign it except in the presence of a Notary Public.  If you do, you'll have to do it all over again.  You can find Notaries at your bank, insurance office, car dealer, anywhere they work with legal documents.)

 

The music file for this years show is under the file manager link of the web page.  It is an mp3 download and will be titled mystery instead of Odyssey (Which is our show title for the year).  Happy listening and have a great summer.  Now, GO PRACTICE!


New way to stay in contact!  

We are always looking for a better way to stay in contact so no one is left out of the loop on important events and announcements.  With this in mind, I have instituted the use a messaging app. called "Remind".  All you have to do is go to this link: rmd.at/323hb and follow the instructions to sign up and join "Band".  The mobile app is free. 

If you don't have a smart phone but can text, text @323hb (in the message field) to 81010 or to 717-363-8462.

If none of these work for you then the booster FB page and the web site are still up and running.

If you are going to Colonial Williamsburg, this is the primary way that we will stay in touch.
