New procedures for parent and visitor entry

With the renovation of the entry way almost complete, Jasper High School will be implementing new procedures for parent/ visitors when they come to campus.  Everyone coming to campus will be required to be buzzed into the front door as before.  The new wall of doors will remained locked and you must enter through the front office.  The door into the office will also be locked and you will have to be allowed to enter. This is currently still being completed.  Everyone going beyond the front door must provide identification and receive a badge to enter the building with the exception of anyone picking up a student. 

If you are simply signing out your student, you can pick up a temporary badge and go to the attendance window.  You are asked to stay in visual sight of the attendance office while you wait for your student to come down.  We have moved two benches for your convince to sit and wait.

The drop off table has been moved to right inside the front door.  Parents can be buzzed in the first door and then drop off the items and leave.  We have new cameras being installed to help monitor the drop off table.

**For results of athletic events, please click here on scoreboard.

**Congratulations to Arta Fan and Adam Christa on being selected for Area Auditions. Last, night the music selections for the audition were incredibly difficult and the competition was really intense. As a matter of fact, a few former All-State students did not make the cut this year.  We are very proud of Arta (3) and Adam (4)for making the top 5 who will move on! They were the only sophomores among the other juniors and seniors selected for their particular voice part. They will compete on January 10 in Commerce, TX for a spot in the Texas All-State Choir

**Jasper Science Students brought home the 1st place trophy from TAMS competition this weekend.

**This past Saturday, the cast/crew of Trojan Women competed against the other 9/10 students in the district in PISD’s One-Act Competition.
While we did not place in the top three shows, I was very proud of their performance and how well they represented Jasper.

We did win 3 individual awards.  Please congratulate the following students on their achievements:

Breck Sunlin- All Star Cast
Mary Elizabeth Woodward- Honorable Mention All Star Cast
Rachael Thompson- All Star Technician

**Last night Plano West FFA traveled to Anna High School to compete in the District Leadership Development Events. The results are as follows:

Public Relations  was 3rd Place
Amaya Burns – Jasper
Michaela Eikelbarner – Jasper
Brittany Feaster – Jasper
Natalie Yanez – Jasper

Senior Chapter Conducting was 3rd Place
Hannah Fisher – Plano West
Katherine Goodrich – Jasper
Alexis Kool – Jasper
Madison Witzig – Jasper
Ryan Zodrow – Jasper

Plano West FFA again won the DISTRICT SWEEPSTAKES Award! Please congratulate our students.

**Please congratulate the 10 Jasper string students were named to the All-State Orchestras this weekend!  This is a tremendous honor for these students, as membership in the Texas All-State Orchestras is one of the most grueling and difficult processes imaginable, and it reflects hundreds of hours of work that began on the audition repertoire last June.

This honor places them among the most elite fraction of string players in Texas and America.

The number next to their name reflects the overall ranking in the state for their instrument.

Violin
13 – Samantha Choo (Symphony Violin I)
41 – Raymond Chen (Philharmonic Concertmaster)
57 – Kevin Bai (Philharmonic Violin I)
Viola
9 – Jarod Stone (Symphony)
24 – Navin Ahire (Philharmonic)
26 – Nisha Rajesh (Philharmonic)
30 – Serena Cheng (Philharmonic)
Cello
22 – Gahwon Lee (Philharmonic)
35 – Daniel Zhong (String)
36 – Angel Yi (String)

**Please congratulate the students on a job well done in the Science fair competition.

1st Place - Biochemistry - Nicky Wojtania
    Nicky will represent Jasper at National AJAS in San Jose, California in February

2nd Place -Computer Science - Ritvik Annam

2nd Place- Engineering - John Li

HM - Botany/Zoology - Aakash Sambhariya

**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 *.
