May Band Events

Band students, parents, and guardians, we are almost to the end of the year! Band has some exciting end-of-year events happening. Please read about the band happenings this May:

PEP BAND MAY 16 AND MAY 17 (optional): Students who wish to participate will stay after school for a practice in the band room before performing at 4:45 at the start of the home soccer games. The games start at 5:00. We will play just at the start of the game and not during or after. Students may stay for the game or may be picked up when done performing. For both of these days, if the weather is not ideal, we will cancel. Students will be updated at school on the day-of.

FINAL BAND CONCERT MAY 19 5:00pm (required): Join our PHJH bands for our final band concert of the year. We will perform on the cafeteria stage and are playing selections by John Williams (Star Wars and Jurassic Park) as well as the World Premier of an original composition, Reggae Fever, by our intern Lorian Guillaume. This concert serves as the "final exam" for band class. Students who miss the concert will be given a make-up final exam.

GIFT EXCHANGE(optional): our 7th grade band classes will be having an end-of-year gift exchange party. Students who wish to participate should bring in an UNWRAPPED gift that is LESS THAN $5.00.

SUMMER BAND JULY 11-22: Students who wish to do the Summer Jump Start program should turn in their paperwork ASAP. Band is offered for the July session. Students who do band for Jump Start usually have a second class of art, PE, or other elective choice. Summer band is for students who will be in either 7th or 8th grade for the 22-23 school year.

Finally, please encourage students to finish this school year strong! We have exciting events happening but must continue or hard work towards being ready for them.
