Jefferson Band of Blue 2014 Section Leaders Announced!

Band of Blue Uniform Drive

Jefferson High School, by way of the Jefferson Band Parents Association, is raising funds to purchase new marching band uniforms. The current uniforms are thirteen years old and have been seen on national television in the Orange Bowl, Citrus Bowl, Holiday Bowl, Pan-Pacific Parade in O’ahu, Hawaii, the Electric Light Parade at Disney World, the Macy’s Parade at Universal Studios, and in performances and competition across the Midwest. These uniforms were first worn in 2000. The uniforms have been patched, repaired, and reinforced. They have served us well, and it is time to replace them.

CONGRATULATIONS to the members of the Jefferson Jazz Band on an outstanding performance and Division I Superior rating at the State Jazz Band Festival hosted here at Jefferson last evening. 

Thank you to the many students, faculty, and parents that made the event a great Festival for all of the bands.  Special thanks to Mr. Steve Shanley, director, and sectional coaches, Jeff Shafer and Wes Anderson, for their great work with the students and Jazz Band this year.

Thank You!
to those that have helped us with a step forward on the Jefferson Band Uniform Drive!!

As you know, school systems are under considerable budgetary pressures. Therefore, we turn to the generosity of our West Side parents, alumni, community, and Cedar Rapids businesses.

Your financial support will enable the students of The Band of Blue to debut these new uniforms in the fall of 2014. A new uniform will cost $400.00.

Our goal is the purchase of 200 uniforms. The Jefferson Band Parent Association is a 501c3 group and your contribution is tax deductible. A receipt will be returned to you for your records. 

Thank you to the parents, grandparents, community members, and Cedar Rapids businesses that have already donated to the Band Uniform Drive as well as the matching gifts that have been received from Alliant Energy! 

Thank you for your past and continued support of Jefferson High School and your Band of Blue!
