Congratulations to our EAHS Jazz Band for their first performance of the year this past Saturday! The students transformed our rehearsal room into a dining-like atmosphere while playing holiday jazz charts.

Thank you to the many volunteers who baked holiday treats, along with our student volunteers & everyone who attended. We hope to see you at one of our upcoming events!


Sportswear Sale Update

Thank you all for your patience while our order was being processed. There were so many stock issues that at one point it looked like we were going to have to cancel orders and issue refunds. Fortunately Caffrey's was able to eventually get everything we ordered. They are working on our order now and still expect to deliver early this week. Please keep an eye out for a separate announcement from Mr. Ballentine.

Also, I do still have blankets, varsity stripe scarves, and black beanies in stock if anyone is looking for a last minute gift. Contact me at merchandise@eahsmusic.org and we can make arrangements.
