A MESSAGE FROM MR. LUCITA
Dear Jaguar Band Families,
Welcome to another great week to be a part of the Jaguar Band!! This week is a somewhat shortened and oddly-scheduled week. We are rapidly approaching final exams for the fall semester and also have a scheduled standardized exam. Please make sure that you pay close attention to all campus calendars that reflect these events.
It is also important to know that all outstanding balances must be paid in order for students to receive exemptions for the fall final exams. Mrs. Mendez emailed financial statements to everyone this past week. Please call the Band Hall if you have any questions concerning balances.
Winter Guard rehearsal will continue this week as this group of hard working students continues to build upon their production! Can’t wait to see the final product!
Unfortunately, this weeks after school Wind Ensemble rehearsal on Tuesday is canceled. We plan to resume the schedule next week.
Solo and Ensemble is still moving forward, and students will be receiving their accompaniment schedule soon! Keep an eye and ear out for that, and please help them be prepared for their accompaniment date and time. They should be working on their solo daily.
Let’s continue to make every day a great day!!
Have a great week!

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!
