Remodel of front entryway

Over the past couple of weekends the district has begun remodeling the front entry way to create a more secure entry for the campus.  We hope to have this renovation completed quickly with as few disruptions to regular campus operations as possible.  All work is being completed in the evening and on weekends.  The outcome of the renovation will create an entry where all visitors will have to be buzzed into the entry foyer and then again be buzzed into the office.  Visitors will no longer be able to walk straight into the main building without going through the front office.  We will send more information when the renovation is completed and any changes the new entry way might bring to standard operations for parents and visitors coming to campus.

Yearbook Deadline

Buy a Jasper yearbook by Friday, 10/31! After that the price of the yearbook goes up! You can buy one at jostensyearbook.com or give money and order form to the front office for Mrs. Garafola. All checks should be made out to Jasper HS and should include student name and id number

**This past Sunday, I’m pleased to report that Jasper’s Legacy Orchestra (the top orchestra) placed 2nd in the TMEA Honor String Orchestra contest.  This is a statewide contest with entries from all the finest string programs in the state, and it is essentially our “state championship” for string orchestras.

This is especially wonderful because Japer is the only non-varsity ensemble in the contest (without 11th and 12th graders).  All the other schools in the competition are traditional 4 year high schools (with all the best players grade 9-12 in the top group), or the Plano Senior Highs.  However, time and time again, the Jasper students prove themselves to be the musical equals of much older and experienced orchestras.

Competition was in 2 rounds, and the finalist schools are listed below in final rank order.  Plano Senior High was not eligible this year because they are the Honor Full Orchestra.

**This weekend, Region 25 had their auditions for the HS All-Region orchestras – a select, highly competitive process that includes all the high school orchestra programs from Plano, Allen, Lovejoy, and Sherman.  I’m happy to report that Jasper had more students selected than any other school in the region!  The list is below, so be sure to congratulate these students if they are in your class.

We also had a number of students rank high enough to qualify to audition for the Texas All-State Orchestras.  Next Saturday, they will record an audition that will be judged in several weeks to select the All-State members.  Be sure to wish them luck as they strive for the highest honor available to a Texas public school music student.  Students who will be taping are marked with an *.
