JET Band Booster Blast 10/1/18

Message from Mike Ary, JET Band Director

Thank you to everyone that stuck around Saturday night after the game for our first full performance. The students always enjoy performing in front of a crowd and they feed of the energy of the crowd.

Bandtober is here! Friday night we have another football game in Legacy. The 8th graders will be joining us in the stands at this game. Then Saturday is our first contest of the season! The BOA Houston Regional is always one of the harder contests in the country with the best bands from Houston, Austin, and San Antonio competing.

Holiday March-A-Thon

This new holiday event will be scheduled for December 15th from 3-5pm.  We plan to have a holiday theme with marching through Green Trails subdivision and ending at the park with the band playing a few holiday songs, hot chocolate, candy canes, etc.  While marching on the short route, concerts can be purchased and the band will stop and play a holiday song.  We are thinking about having a “Ugly Holiday Sweater Contest”!

If you would like to help with this event, please email Kristen at secretary@jetband.org.

Special Recognition

Can I say everyone?  A special thanks to everyone that unselfishly makes a difference for this awesome band program!  We should all appreciate each other’s efforts and time for our band students!  Thank you for what YOU do!

Of course, we can’t thank our amazing directors enough!  Thank you for the countless hours, the dedication, and the passion you devote to the band program and our kids!  It’s what “Dreams” are made of!

Please let me know if I can help answer any questions.  President@jetband.org

March On,
