URGENT! Additional Sizing Needed for Performance Tops

The company we are ordering performance tops from informed us yesterday that they will need waist and height measurements in order to create the band performance tops!


AND THEY NEED THESE MEASUREMENTS BY MONDAY!!


So, please help us out! Get your students measurements submitted by either coming by the band hall TOMORROW (7/10) between 10am - 2pm or submitting your measurements via the form below NO LATER THAN SUNDAY, JULY 11th.


NOTE: Color Guard and Drum Majors DO NOT need to fill out this form!

TUESDAYS ARE OPEN BAND HALL DAYS!

Mr. Lucita and Mrs. Mendez will have the band hall open EVERY TUESDAY for any students/sections that want to come to the band hall and practice. (starting after 7/16) They are available between the hours of 8am - 4:30pm.


If students are interested in scheduling practice time at the band hall outside of those days/hours, please contact Ida Musgrove at president@johnsonbands.com.


Don't forget that you can meet up with your sections anywhere! Be creative and schedule a practice meeting at a park! Wherever you choose to meet, it is great to get together, have fun, and also feel prepared for what is going to be an amazing (and challenging ;-) year!

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR WORK DAYS!

The Jaguar Build Crew is having a work day on Saturday, July 17 from 8-11am. They will be fixing up the trailers, building storage, and reorganizing the guard room.


If you like to work with your hands, have some craftmanship skills, like to repair items, or help repair and/or build props, shelves, or other items needed by the band programs, then come on out and lend a helping hand!


We welcome ALL members of our families to help but do want to point out that this is the committee where our DADS, UNCLES, GRANDPA'S, and BROTHERS seem to like to volunteer!


And truth be told, our moms, aunts, grandma's and sisters are primarily the ones that volunteer for all of the other support services the boosters provide the band...So, let's go guys, here's your chance to do your part! Hope to see you Saturday!

VOLUNTEER TO SUPPORT YOUR CHILD'S PROGRAM!

REMEMBER! Behind every great band program is a great booster organization! (and remember that at JHS, "Band" includes brass, woodwinds, percussion, and guard!)


Do your part and volunteer for at least one event this year! If you can volunteer more than that, it will be truly appreciated and you might be surprised at fulfilling and fun it is too!


Select your INTERESTS on THIS FORM which can also be found on our website!

INTRODUCING YOUR 2021-2022 JAGUAR BAND PARENT SECTION LEADS!

Thank you to the following parents who have agreed to serve as Parent Leads for the 2021-2022 school year!


"Section Parent Leads" will be the first point of contact for parents within their section that are seeking answers to basic questions that veteran band parents generally can answer - questions like "what is a bibber?" or "how do I sign up for meal plans?"


Be on the lookout for communications from your lead listed below! Communications throughout the year will take place via GroupMe. Each Section Parent Lead will add parent contact info into the section GroupMe. If you wish to not be included in this informative group, please contact your parent section lead.


p.s. GroupMe will also be the platform we will use during the Spring Break Hawaii trip so this practice will come in handy!

Enjoy!

REMEMBER: BOOSTERS ARE VOLUNTEERS...please be nice

90% of the time you receive an email, a document to fill out, a date and schedule, the newsletter, or are requested to provide measurements for uniforms, or see pictures on the website, or even just the website itself! These items were organized and created by PARENT VOLUNTEERS on their OWN TIME.


Most of us work all day, just like you do! We do the work to set up meal plans, help organize measuring and picture days, create the website, etc. during our non-work hours.


Please be supportive and patient.


Rude comments and criticism do not solve your concerns. However, volunteering to help so that you can address your concerns can!


So, please be nice and supportive and, if you disapprove of the work, don't complain...VOLUNTEER to help it get better!


Sincerely,

Jaguar Band Booster Officers
