Jag Band Update 4/9/23

Hey Jags,
It’s UIL week, Spring Show week, the week before leadership interviews, and just a couple of weeks before the solo contest! Rides should be worked out by our Wind Symphony students with that 6:30am call time on Friday. Accompanists should be procured for both our Wind Symphony and Wind Ensemble students for the solo contest, and instruments should have stayed warm all weekend from putting on those final touches for UIL. If one or more of those things are not true for you, you need to stay on top of it!
Here’s this weeks’ update:

We have approximately $30,000 of band fees that need to be paid (lower than last week, YAY!)
Final payment of the $140 for Activity Fee 2 is due May 5th.
