As we get closer to the end of the year let me give you a few friendly reminders.
Band and Chorus Awards Night (April 30th from 6-9pm)
Permission slips are due by Tuesday, April 26th. The event will begin promptly at 6pm. NO NEED FOR ANYONE TO ARRIVE ANY EARLIER. All students and chaperone’s can report at 6pm ready to have a good time. Remember that this is not a “Prom” just a fun way to get together, hand out our awards, and do some dancing.
If you checked a volunteer line on the permission form I will need you.
CJHS Awards Banquet at Tabernacle Church (May 2nd, 5:15pm – 6:30pm)
This event is MANDATORY for all 8th grade band students. We will warm-up on stage at 5:30pm and perform two pieces at 6pm for the opening of the CJHS Awards Evening. Any students attending the NJHS ceremony at 5:30pm can go to the induction ceremony and then come join us ASAP once the ceremony is complete.
Any students not receiving an award that evening from CJHS can leave with their parent, any student receiving an award will go lineup in the gym.
Uniform Requirement: We will not be wearing our band uniforms, students will be asked to dress nicely. Boys can wear a shirt and tie or polo and khakis, girls can wear a dress or nice blouse and shirt.
It is an honor that we are invited to play for this prestigious event and I would like to have everyone there looking and sounding great.
