Beginning of the Year Band Information!

Dear Parents and Students -

Welcome to the 2019-2020 School year, and thank you again for being a member of the Joliet Central High School Band!

Some key items below: I will do my best to be brief and get to the point.

  • Our student teacher this year is Ms. Alexis Sujka (pronounced Soy-kah). She comes to us from North Central College in Naperville, IL. Please welcome her when you see her! As part of her student teaching experience, she must video record herself teaching. Please complete the attached form and return at your earliest convenience. CLICK HERE FOR THE FORM.
