We have decided that any and all after school rehearsals this week will be cancelled due to band director illness, the high school disney trip, and the fact that Saturday’s symphonic camp went so well.
We will resume our usual after school rehearsals next week.
Monday- 6th grade band voluntary help sessions with Ms. Menendez
Tuesday- 7th grade band after school rehersal 3-4:30.
Wednesday- Jazz Band for 7th and 8th graders. 3-4:30
Thursday- 8th grade band after school rehersal 3-4:30.
I have decided to make the call to cancel our after-school practice session today for the sixth grade students due to a heavy cold that is coming on for me. I do not feel that working with your students individually would be the greatest idea during this contagious period. They will be reminded to call home if needed to make sure that they have the correct transportation worked out.
Thank you for your understanding!
Congrats to all the students today at Symphonic Camp. We hope you had a great time and also learned a lot. We couldn’t be more proud of you.
Remember Tuesday after school rehearsal for 7th grade band. 8th grade after school rehearsal on Thursday is cancelled due to us going to Disney with the HS marching band.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and we will see you Monday, don’t forget to bring your instruments on Monday.
Just a friendly reminder about today’s camp. If you forgot something at the JH I will be there and have the band room unlocked.
Ms. Menendez brought a lot of percussion folders and a few other folders that were still on stands after school yesterday.
See you at 9 am at the MAC.

Thursday we have an after school rehearsal for 8th Grade Band from 3-4:15pm in the CJHS band room.
Please make every effort to have your child attend these rehearsals. If your child is part of another afterschool activity please try to share time.
Saturday. All seventh and eighth graders have a symphonic band camp from 9 AM to 3 PM. They will receive their shirts on Friday during school and should show up at the MAC at 9 AM in their symphonic band camp T-shirt.
Please make every effort to attend the symphonic band camp this Saturday. It will really help to take our kids to the next level. I am still looking for volunteers if you would like to come and help out with any phase of the camp.
We are looking for a big group of parents to help out at next week’s symphonic band camp.
- We will need help with setup and tear down on Friday after school from 3pm – 4:30pm
- We will also need help on that Saturday Jan 24th at 8:30 AM helping to chaperone kids to the right areas, serve lunch, and tear down etc…
- I would also ask too if we have a parent who is a doctor or nurse if they would be willing to volunteer their time to stay on Saturday from 9am – 3pm to help in case a student needs medical attention.
Thanks everyone, this event is going to be an awesome one if we all work together. Email me if you are willing to volunteer.
