important Summer Notes

Open Band Hall--UPDATED June 3, 2022

The band hall will be open Monday - Thursday from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. All open band hall days and times are now listed on the Johnson Band Calendar. Any large student-led sectionals need to be communicated at least one day in advance to Mr. Lucita. This is to ensure that a Director is there for safety and logistical concerns. Individuals do not need to communicate in advance. We are thrilled to have had many students already taking advantage of this program and hope that more will continue. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.


Guard members: Please keep an eye out for Spin Days at JHS! We will be working on getting dates in the gym for you to practice your skills. We will also be offering days for strength training and improving flexibility/stretching.

All Band and Guard families: Please don't forget to pay your 2022 - 23 Fees

Fees are used to help purchase summer and competition uniforms! Please visit our website to pay 2022 - 23 Band, Guard and School Instrument Fees. We have been able to maintain the same guard fees as last year. RevTrak will go live later this week so that guard families can pay. Please keep an eye out!

STAY STRONG AND HEALTHY FOR SUMMER BAND!

Throughout the summer we will be sharing different exercises and stretches for you to stay strong and healthy over the summer.


Here is your first one! https://youtu.be/zuBzv3kDTPI


This exercise is for ALL color guard and band members. Shoulder / rotator cuff injuries are very common especially with guard work. This exercise will help strengthen that shoulder girdle and add some protection. This exercise can be completed daily as part of your warm up. Go slow and under control. 1: keep the palm facing up as you rotate ( THIS IS THE HARDEST PART) try your best to stand straight 2: Start with light weight 1-2 pounds. Don’t go any heavier than 5 to start. Stand straight 3: rotate inward for 5 reps then outward for 5 ( this is 1 set). Stand straight 4: Complete 3 sets for each arm. Stand straight 5: practice using a small paper plate to get form correct (FORM IS CRITICAL) 6: stand straight
