A MESSAGE FROM MR. LUCITA
Dear Jaguar Band Families,
Here we go with another exciting week! What a great Hawaii meeting last week! During last week's virtual Band Booster Meeting we had over one-hundred people logged in and active as we discussed the 2022 Hawaii trip!
This week we continue to prepare for Solo & Ensemble! All Jaguar Band students are preparing solos and will perform either in the UIL Solo & Ensemble Contest at Hays High School on February 20th or will perform in our local Solo & Ensemble held during that same month. Please help us ensure that your student is regularly working on their solo. Don’t procrastinate!!
There is important update for Winter Guard practice this week. The guard will have practice Monday from 1 - 6 p.m. and Thursday from 5 - 8 p.m.
And, finally, we want to celebrate student success! This weekend we sent five of our Jaguar Band students to the TMEA Area Auditions. All of our students performed wonderfully, and we are extremely proud of their accomplishments! There is one student that placed first chair in his room and earned a seat in the Texas All State Band!!! That student is trombonist Travis Miller!! CONGRATULATIONS Travis on a job well done!! I can think of no better way to end this week's letter than to celebrate what our students are doing within our band program. Our band is just two years old, and in each of those years we have had an All State Student. Last year it was Parker Taylor on Tuba, and this year it is Travis Miller on Trombone!! That is an incredible accomplishment which is magnified by the fact that we do not even have seniors yet!! The future looks extremely bright for our Jaguar Band!!
Have a great week!
Spirit Night: Thursday, February 11th, 10:30am-10pm, @ MOD Kyle

Band Sponsorships and opportunity to put Student names on trailer!
The Johnson Jaguar Band depends in large part on the fundraising efforts of the Band Boosters. Sponsorships are a very important part of fundraising. Our Sponsorship levels have been updated, and we have a lot of exciting options for businesses AND families! We ask that every family please share this brochure with anyone you know that has a business. We are eager to help promote businesses in our community that support the Jaguar Band! If you would like color copies of our Sponsorship Brochure, we are happy to provide them.
A new addition to our Sponsorship options is the Friends and Family Level. This level offers various options for businesses as well as an option for band families: For $200, you can have your child’s name and graduation year on our band trailer indefinitely with the option to simultaneously add sibling name for an additional $100.
Details of all Sponsorship Options can be found at https://www.johnsonbands.com/sponsorships.
Thank you for your support of the Johnson Jaguar Band!

End of "semester" and change of schedule for percussion
Since this school year started late, the semester doesn't technically end until the end of January. After this grading period, percussion no longer have a separate percussion class but rather start attending their full band class. Please direct any questions to Mr. Lunsford.
Did you know that Color Guard is year round!? In the "Spring" color guards enter competitive "winter guard" circuits. Check out last year's Jaguar Winter Guard performance on their web page located HERE. If you know of someone that might be interested in joining the winter guard for the Spring Semester, have them get in contact with Mr. Duffy! It's not too late!
