Recap from this weekend and looking ahead

Good afternoon,

We have had a blast lately here at the JH! Thursday was another successful Trojan Band game! The volunteers always keep those games going. I am so thankful for your dedication in ensuring that our students have a wonderful time each game. We will not perform at this week’s Trojan Band Game. We will hopefully perform at next Thursday’s game in the championship assuming the football team wins this Thursday. More info to come.

8th Grade night was a blast! The students performed at the Amp, pre-game and in the stands with the high school band. I loved seeing our students performing and dancing their hearts out all night. I know that it was a long night but I promise that it was an experience that they will never forget.

Saturday was our 4th annual Legacy of Champions band competition. A THIRD long day for a lot of us but a fulfilling and purposeful day. I received numerous compliments about how hard our JH students worked that day. I was beaming from ear to ear each time someone bragged on our students. Thank you to the parents and students who worked extremely hard on Saturday to help our high school band family.
