Good afternoon!

Next Week:

Tuesday: D.C./Philadelphia trip virtual meeting

Wednesday: Music lecture by Ms. Menendez 1 PM. (Discussion on music around the world! All students welcome)

This is all on the CJHS band calendar that can be found on the website. Links are posted here as well as on the actual even in the calendar. If you “subscribe” to the band google calendar than it will automatically load into your own personal calendar. That has been a lifesaver for me!

Thank you for all of the birthday wishes!!! I truly love all of you and felt so special on my big day! A few important announcements below:

COLOR GUARD: If you know an 8th grader who is interested in joining Color Guard please forward them the information in the flyer attached below. They do NOT have to have any prior experience in band or music or anything! PLEASE help me spread the word. Text them, call them, etc. The Color Guard is a part of the band program so if you love hanging with certain friends and want more time hanging with them, invite them to join color guard! It is an absolute blast. Most kids who love acting, performing, and dancing enjoy color guard.IMG-1361 (1)

WASHINGTON D.C./PHILADELPHIA TRIP: If you are an 8th grader and are traveling on that trip next year, make sure your down payment is paid by May 1st. We will have an online trip meeting on Tuesday, April 21st at 6 PM. Link to join meeting is here:

8TH GRADE INFORMATIONAL MEETING: You all have some very great questions about next year as far as schedules go, marching band, payments, auditions, and more. Please plan on attending this virtual meeting on Thursday, April 30th at 6 PM. Link to join meeting is here:

ALL STUDENTS: Make sure that your chair test has been turned in. Grades are being input. I do not have a date of the release of those tests yet because we are still collecting them. If you see people in your section who have not turned them in, help me contact them. One all are turned in we can post the results! Thanks for the help.

Please let me know if you have any questions!
