Message from Kristin Abel, Band Booster Secretary

Our first JET Band Jingle Tour was a huge success, and so much fun!  Many thanks to all of you who helped out with the event.  Special thanks to the Bolding’s and the Color Guard for doing such a great job decorating Santa’s “sleigh.”  A big thank you to Steve Wigger for coordinating the “sleigh” and the table set up, and to all of the volunteers who donated time, cookies, and hot chocolate fixings for our bake sale, and to all of the chaperones who marched with the band. Thanks to our very own JET Band “Santa Claus” who was a huge hit with the crowd! And of course, thank you to our amazing kids and directors who provided all of the holiday entertainment!  All of your efforts are noticed and appreciated.

New! Memory Book coming in Spring!

We are currently in the works of the JET BAND making its own Memory Book/Yearbook for our 2018-2019 season! It will be anywhere from 50-75 pages of all band and color guard students and events.  More information will come out in the next couple months so please keep an eye out for it.  We hope to have every band and color guard student in the book while highlighting all the events, concerts, and contests for the fall and spring semesters.

If you are interested in being part of putting the yearbook together, please contact Sharon Mitchell at


Everyone have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Play On….
