Meeting Cancelled/Here's the info

With all of the bitter cold weather, tonight's JH band parents meeting is cancelled. I can go over everything right here.

HJH & Gilbert INFO
The spring trips will be here before we know it. All money for both the HJH and Gilbert trips are due on February 9th. HJH students should have all $75 paid by this date. All Gilbert students should have all $50 paid by this date. If you can't get it taken care of by then, please let me know and we can work something out. If you are unsure about how much your student still owes, please don't hesitate to email me.

Chaperones! If you are interested in chaperoning a trip, please let me know. Right now, we should have enough for the JH trip. We need more for the Gilbert trip on May 12th. If you are interested, let me know.

Our spring fundraiser with both HJH and Gilbert started last week and runs through next Wednesday.

Don't forget that the private lessons program is up and running. The cost of each lesson is $16. The Stephenville band fans do offer $8 scholarships to make your cost only $8. Private lessons are a great help and I encourage everyone to participate. If you are interested in having your student take private lessons from a specialist on their specific instrument, please let me know.

Mark your calendars.......Spring Concert will be May 10th.

For those JH students that made the All-Region Band, the concert is next Saturday January 27th at Stephenville High School at 6:00 PM. We will have 2 more rehearsals in order to prepare on January 17th, and 24th.

HJH students will have the opportunity to play at the Texanns basketball game on February 13. Sign up list is in the band hall.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

All-Region Results

FALL 2017
On Saturday, November 18th 2017 some 400 Junior High band students from across Region 7 participated in the All-Region Band Tryouts here at Henderson Junior High. HJH was well represented with………….59 students being placed!  That is just three spots away from matching last year’s number of 62 spots earned.  With only 81 spots available, HJH students will make up 73% of this All-Star Band.  This includes 11 first chairs and 5 sections that will only have HJH students in them.  These students will now get a chance to perform a concert right here at Stephenville High School on Saturday January 27th.  I have included their names and chair placement Congratulations to them for their hard work!
