Please help the Jaguar Band have a safe and fun summer band experience! Sign up to staff the Band Aids tent and help serve meals to the kids. If you have any questions about Meal Plans, please contact Blanca Velez or Julie Hoese (firstname.lastname@example.org).
PARENTS - We need your help with fitting the band students into their uniforms for the season and also for pictures. We will have different stations set up to get them fitted, photographed, pants pinned and then scanned in.
STUDENTS - We need student volunteers to help as runners to help assist the students from one station to the next and to help our parent volunteers as needed.
Questions can be directed to Carmen Sifuentes (email@example.com).
Everyone who signs up for the whole day will be provided lunch by the Band Boosters.
A Message from the Band Boosters
Staying Informed! The Jaguar Band strives to keep everyone informed about our events and increase the opportunity to answer questions and create conversations with our community. This year, you will be able to find out information not only in our Newsletter and on our Band Calendar, but we will also be sharing them on our Johnson Band website events page and as events on our Facebook page. Our events on Facebook will be used as a primary source for updates and reminders. Don't forget to use your section GroupMe's as a quick and effective way to get your questions answered!
Our first big fundraising event of this year is the Jaguar Jog! Please check out and share our Jaguar Jog Sponsorship Options on our website. You can also find on our web store page the link for registration to race or get a sleepwalker shirt. Please start promoting this event!
