*Seniors and parents: TO DO item: seniors should let me know who is escorting them by FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14, as I have to prepare a list for the event organizers.  Students or parents may deliver this in writing or via email to dstinson@jths.org.  If I do not receive anything, your name will not be called!*


Our next fundraiser is our Pork Chop Dinner, which will take place at Joliet Central High School in the student center/cafeteria on Sunday, November 13, 2016.

Our Band Parent Association runs many fundraisers to help offset the cost of band trips.  Fundraisers are an opportunity for students to help cover part of or all of the cost to educational and exciting performance opportunities.  Past band trips have included New York, Canada, Gatlinburg, TN, Cleveland, OH, and Orlando, FL.  Our next band trip is during the 2017-2018 school year.  A trip location will be determined during second semester, and the location will be based off of what is reasonably affordable for our students (determined by trip account balances).
