To the parents of all JHS band students:


On April 15th, the 7th and 8thgrade bands will be going to UILConcert and Sight-Reading Contest at the Palacios High School Auditorium.  This contest is the only event in which the entire junior high band competes away from school during the course of the school year.   We have been preparing in class for this event for about 6 weeks now. All 7th grade and 8th grade band members are required to attend this contest unless they are ineligible!  It is very important that your child be in attendance on this day!  The contest is open to the public and free to attend, so please come out and listen to your child perform if you can!


The dress code for the day will be the same as the dress code that we have for our concerts. Young men must wear dress pants, slacks or khaki’s with a button down shirt and tie.  If they do not have a tie, I will have some available for them to wear.  Dress shoes or boots should be worn.  No flip flops,denim (blue jean material) or tennis shoes are allowed.  Young woman should wear a dress, skirt with blouse, or dress pants and blouse.  Dress shoes, boots or sandals should be worn.  Again,no denim, flip flops, or tennis shoes are allowed.  If you do not have clothes that meet this dress code for your child, please contact me so that I may help find the properattire.
