5/1 JH Band Update

Here is an update about current and upcoming JH Band events.

*Friends and Patrons Fundraiser*
Last week, the AW Band Boosters started their final fundraiser for the
year. The “Friends and Patrons” drive has become our most profitable
fundraiser and allows the boosters to keep 100% of the proceeds. Donors
have the option of having their name listed as a band supporter in the Fall
Sports program as well as the programs for all band concerts for the
2017-2018 school year. See the attached document for information about the
drive and how you can help.

We’re extending the turn-in date to Monday, May 8th.
