JAZZ NIGHT SUCCESS!
Great job to all of the Middle School and High School students who participated in Jazz night!! All of the performances were a lot of fun and a wonderful way to showcase the talent of many of the musicians within our band program. Once again, we are so blessed to have another opportunity for an in person/live event for both our students and their families. Thanks to everyone who went out of their way to make the event possible!
VOLUNTEERS AND DONATIONS NEEDED FOR AFTER PROM
Help wanted! We are in need of volunteers to help decorate and run the band’s Disco Tattoo Shop during After Prom on Friday, April 30th. Both parents and students can help decorate and set up prior to the event. During After Prom itself, we ask for only parent volunteers due to Covid restrictions. In case you cannot volunteer your time, we could also use donations of cash and/or supplies. Monetary donations will be used to purchase needed items and decorations.
To volunteer or to see a list of needed supplies please log into Charms. Please click on the “helping hand” on the April 30th date in the calendar to sign up to volunteer your time. If you prefer to donate supplies, click on the “helping hand” for April 15th.
Monetary donations can be made online here. Cash/Check donations can also be placed in the drop box next to the band room. Thanks in advance for any help you are able to provide. It promises to be a fun night!! Please email email@example.com with any questions you may have.
