Band Shines at the BIG E and Apple Fest
The Band has been in the opening day parade at the Eastern States Exposition for well over a decade now. They've also been ushering in the annual Apple Fest for several years. What's most impressive is that the group has consistently matured and improved in each of those years.
Their sound, appearance, and effort were excellent at both events. We're all looking forward to building off these performances. We're in store for a very special year!
Homecoming Lunch Buffet
All music department performance ensemble members are welcome to join together after the parade for a fun and filling lunch. You are also welcome to register and bring a friend or friends.
You must pre-register with Mr. Lamoureux. Bring your $13 in an envelop with your name & "China Jade" clearly written on it. Checks made to JSMA. Please do not combine checks with other events or fees such as candy payments, All-State registration, or Creepy Cosmic Bowling.
