This is your weekly MUSIC DEPARTMENT update!
Did you SEE that Jags Game?! Holy Moly! I felt like I needed to see the doctor after that kick at the end! Go Jags!
FMEA was fun and educational, but I'm ready to get back into the classroom with all of you so we can start whittling away at our music.

Things to Note 🎵:
Slice the Price Card Fundraiser
Our upcoming emergency fundraiser will be "Slice the Price" cards!
This fundraiser will begin next Tuesday, January 17th.
You will be selling at least 15 cards online and/or in- person. When people buy a large pizza at Dominos, this card will allow them to purchase a second one for free. The card works from now through December 31st (even the band budget itself will benefit from having this card). I bet you can already see how popular something like this will be in our county.
But you also don't have to just sell to people in our county. If you check the below website, you'll see where all people can use this card.
We need ALL HANDS ON DECK. All Band Students including Colorguard and Majorettes, and we could even use the help of chorus students. If 15 or more students sell 15 or more cards, those 15 students will earn a free band t- shirt!
Information and packets will be in on Tuesday/ Wednesday.
Please get energized about this fundraiser!! Our ability to participate in Concert, S&E, and Jazz MPA depends on it!!
