Hello Band Families,

  Looking forward to another exciting year in band at JCD.  I am asking now if all band parents can purchase a 3 ring binder with about 15 clear sheet protectors in it.  More info coming, but 

I know some of you were anxious about supplies.  Thank you, and I look forward to seeing you all in less than a month!

Hello parents and students!  Mr. Maust here.  I just want to clear up the band schedule, as there has been some confusion.

8th grade band band on Tuesdays and Fridays

7th grade has band Mondays and Thursdays

6th grade has band on Tuesdays and Fridays

5th grade is a little different.  ALL fifth grade band members have class on Wednesdays.  5th grade flutes, oboes, clarinets and saxophones also have band on Monday.  5th grade trumpets, french horns, trombones, baritones and percussion also have band on Thursdays.  

Students also need to check their lesson schedule for private lessons throughout the week.  I will also begin posting the lesson schedule for the week on here starting next week.  

Thank you for your help and patience while we get band up and moving!  As always, email me with any questions or concerns.  andrew.maust@new-haven.k12.ct.us
