JLMS Bands/Cadet Band - May 2014 Update
Dear Parents,

Wow, the school year has really flown by!  It is hard to believe that we are entering spring concert season. 

JLMS Bands – January 2014 Update

 Dear Parents,

With Chili Day and solo and ensemble around the corner, the JLMS band students have been busy preparing all of their upcoming performances!

 The 5th Grade Cadet Band, 6th, 7th, 8th grade and jazz band have been focusing on learning their music for Chili Day on February 9th at GHS.  JLMS Bands and Choirs perform from 11:30-1:30. The Cadet Band performs at 1:30.  Come out and listen to some good music and eat some fabulous chili!

 In addition to Chili Day preparations, students have been picking out their music for the Lake Moraine Solo and Ensemble.  This year’s festival is on Saturday, February 22nd at JLMS.  Performance schedules will be available at the beginning of February. If you have any questions about your child’s performance for solo and ensemble, please contact Mrs. Pound at 376-5869 or email me at

 Please consider volunteering for these wonderful events.  The GMP could use your help on Chili Day and I could use your help with the solo and ensemble festival.  Check the GMP webpage for the volunteer link for Chili Day and check out the JLMS Bands webpage for the link for solo and ensemble.  THANK YOU!

As always, feel free to call or email Mrs. Pound with any questions regarding these upcoming events.

 Thank you for your continuing support of the JLMS Bands and Grafton Music Parents!
