In the Director's Corner

The Jazz Band concert last Friday evening was fantastic! It was so fun to host the concert in our classroom. Thank you to everyone who came to support it. Congratulations to our students who participated all semester! Another BIG congratulations to Mike Holguin who made all the difference in teaching everyone!

This is a fun and busy week. We will have color guard workshop auditions Monday through Wednesday, so encourage friends to audition and become a part of the Sapphire Sound. From there, we have our Awards Night on Thursday. This annual tradition highlights our students and their outstanding school year. It's always a wonderful event. On Friday, 195 students are heading to Knott's Berry Farm for the day as there isn't any school. It should be fun! Please send students with spending money for food, souvenirs, etc. Saturday is Prom. Have a great time, Seniors!

We are happily busy through to the end of the school year. Please check the google calendar on the Band website for details and any updates.

I hope to see you Thursday at the Awards Night!

“All in” 💙💛, Mrs. C
