Jag Band Update 11/13/22

Hello folks! 
‘Tis the day after CraftFest, the week before Thanksgiving break, and exactly one month and one day before our winter concert. Let me first start off by saying that CraftFest 2022 was a huge success! Thank you to everyone who worked a shift, contributed food, transported their student to the school, attended the event, grilled burgers, served coffee – I mean… I say this all the time, but it truly takes a village to do something like this. I have to give a special shoutout to our Booster Board who not only organized a terrific event but handled everything that came at them with grace and kindness ensuring everyone felt heard and welcomed. Parents, I can’t tell you how many times I heard from the booster board or individual vendors that our students were outstanding. Students, thank you for making this a success, you surprise me every day. I’m already looking forward to next year’s event.

Craft Fest 2022
Thanks again and fantastic job everyone! Huge success! Once all the numbers get crunched, I’ll share with you how much we made.
Playoff Game at South Oak Cliff
Students – thanks so much for providing some (albeit very flat) entertaining music for the fans and the team and persevering through that cold weather. It was actually a good game that turned out differently than we probably wanted it to. Now that marching band is officially over, we can now dedicate a little more time to our All-State process, concert music, ensembles, solos, and pass-offs.
Information on our final uniform washing will be out soon.
Winter Guard Auditions
Results were posted on Thursday in the band office windows. Can’t wait to see what our team comes up with!
