Please continue to stay on top of payments in your child's CHARMS account.  We need to make sure we have funds to pay for needed items for the program and costs of the spring trip (if that applies to your child.)

We are looking for sponsors to help offset the costs of running this festival.  This is a great event the band hosts each year!  Please let us know asap if you know of a company that would be willing to be a sponsor. More information will be in the Jazz Festival email coming soon.

JAZZ BAND 3!  Details will be out this week about Jazz Band 3.  This is a volunteer group that will meet 1 to 2 days a week after school for about 45 minutes.  This is open to all students, no matter what instrument they play.  Look for another email later this week.

 I hope everyone has a great week!
