Due to the school cancellation today, we will be postponing JH Solos/Ensembles. We are working with administration to determine a makeup day. We will inform you of this when we know.
Referrals are the #1 way that we can get people to the mattress fundraiser. Please let everyone know about this event. Even one sale helps us out! The lady from the company was here today to talk to the kids about the event. She said that approximately 10% of the US population buys a mattress each year. So, we are not trying to push unneeded product on people. We are just trying to sell to the people that were going to buy one anyway. We can just do it for cheaper and it helps out the CJ Band Program. Thanks!!!

Happy Ice Day everyone! Due to the school cancellation and slippery road conditions, we will be postponing the Springfield Music Step-up night. We will be in contact with Springfield Music about rescheduling the event for a later date. We will let you know when we have found a new date. Stay safe and warm!
Step-up Night is tomorrow (Thursday)! The JH band room will be open from 6-8 PM. Springfield Music will be here with an assortment of Intermediate and Professional level instruments. This will be a great opportunity to try out the instruments without all the other kids around and see what a better horn can do for you!
