4/12/18: Booster Meeting

I just wanted to remind everyone that we will be having a regular meeting of the Band Booster Association on March 14th at 7:00 PM in the band room. Please remember that membership is extended to all parents or guardians of registered band students or color guard participants and these meetings are open to all members of the Association. We will be discussing a variety of topics and I encourage as many of you who can attend to be there so we can close out the 2017-2018 school year on a ”high note” and start preparations for the upcoming 2018-2019 school year!

Also, as per the Association bylaws we will be having these regular Association meetings on the second Wednesday of every month at 7:00 PM in the band hall. I will be sure to send out a reminder each month along with an agenda because I really want to see an increase in parent participation. The band is only going to continue to grow with each Freshman class and we will need all the help we can get from all of our parents so please bring your ideas and any questions that you have so we can have an interactive, engaging and productive discussion during these meetings!

Thank you,
Mark DeVol
President JCHS Band Booster Association
