Calling All Volunteers!!

We are getting excited for our last BIG event that Jefferson is hosting for this school year. The All City Music contest requires 88 positions to be filled so that means we need EVERY family to pick a time spot that works into your schedule. I have floaters built in so that if your child is playing we can relieve you to go and watch your child. I want this event to be a success and we can only pull it off with the right amount of help and support. Thank you for all you do to support the band and music program. 


for your ongoing support, encouragement, and participation in the Jefferson Band Program
