Message from Shakira Luna, Band Booster President
Spring Break is just days away! Please join us tonight for our general booster meeting. We are in the home stretch for this school year. We will discuss our soil & mulch fundraiser as well as our end of the year events. The meeting will be on Zoom. Link/meeting information is posted in the Facebook group and is in Helper Helper. Hope to see you there!
Order your band yearbook today! A wonderful keepsake of the band and color guard memories throughout this extraordinary school year! This is an 80+ page full color hard bound book. It will be distributed before school is out for the summer.
For questions and to inquire on personal or business ads, email email@example.com.
The JET Band Boosters will be offering ten $750 scholarships to graduation seniors this year. Please complete your application, scan and email it along with your essay to Mr. Ary by the deadline on April 12th. Click here for the Scholarship Application Form.
We are looking for volunteers to deliver and install mulch this weekend! If you are interested in helping out, please sign up on Helper Helper. In addition to “manpower”, we need adults with trucks/SUVs to haul mulch for delivery. Shifts are broken up into 2.5 hour slots. You can choose to help with customers who are just picking up order, help with making deliveries only, or help with delivery and installations. Coordinate with your friends and sign up as a crew on Helper Helper. If someone would like to help, but they are not registered for HH, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with their contact info (name, email, and phone #) along with the shift that they would like to work. We can manually get them signed up and registered for HH at the same time.
Please begin to think forward to how you might like to step up to serve the JET Band next year. If you have been volunteering with a particular group or crew, please ask that coordinator about shadowing them if you are interested in taking on more responsibility. Now is the time to start gathering information from our graduating senior parents so that we have a smooth transition for next year.
This year we’ll be doing something a little different. On March 23rd at 6pm, we will have a Leadership Interest Meeting on Zoom to provide additional information and answer questions for anyone who might be thinking of stepping up into a coordinator or leadership position. We will follow up in April and May with a couple more strategic training and planning sessions to help ease the transition from current coordinators to new leaders.
Jazz Band Concert
Missing the annual Crustacean Ball? Well, due to the pandemic we are still not planning meal events, but the good news is that we will have the opportunity to see the jazz band perform! Bring your camping chairs out to the band lot on March 27th at 6pm. The Jazz Band will perform in front of our trailer. Please wear your mask and social distance with your pod or family group. You may bring your own food/refreshments to enjoy, but of course no smoking or alcohol is allowed on school property. Let’s spread the word and bring out a nice crowd for a great (safely distanced) evening of music from our jazz band!
Used Band Gear
There is a supply of used band gear that is available to anyone who can make use of those items. If you are in need of band gear for next year or would like to donate, please email David & Christy Bailey at email@example.com to make arrangements.
Earn money for your student’s Charms account with money that you had planned to spend anyway! This is a great way to add money to your student’s account through rebates and lessen your out of pocket band/guard expenses. Get set up now and use the rebate earnings to start saving for next year’s fees!
Scrips for physical gift cards will be ordered according to the following schedule for the year:
Orders will be placed at 8 am on the following dates-
|Order Placed||Estimated Delivery Date|
|March 22nd||March 26th|
|April 26th||April 30th|
