Jewell Announces Jewell School Band Camp for all current 6th -12th graders. Instruments are cleaned and ready, music has been selected, and the city of Astoria awaits your performance in the much hyped Astoria Regatta Land Parade on August 14th. This is also a fundraiser for the Jewell music program in association with the Astoria Regatta Association. We need ALL students to participate, have fun, play hard, and represent as the hardest working student population along the Oregon Coast.

We are also looking for 3rd grade students and up who might be interested in holding colorful flags, with the possibility of doing a small routine, to really “beef” up the look of our entry in the parade. Just show up on the first day of band camp to sign-up for this position.

Mr. Pederson at 503-836-2198 or email: email@example.com
I will also be posting information on the Jewell Facebook Updates page.
Phone Tree Calls will be taking place from school to your home with an announcement.
Call the school for information, or to pick up a flyer.
I highly encourage students of all age levels, from high school and middle school (as well as the beginning band students of last year) to come together and create a memorable and wonderful event for this community. I often find, that even something as simple as working together for three days to achieve a common goal, can be quite fulfilling and fun, as well as allows for new and old friendships to move forward. Even more important, learning happens at a very accelerated and fun pace.
I’m looking forward to having a great year.
When we “Band Together!” it is amazing what we can accomplish.
“Band Together” and make memorable music for our school, and community!
Take care, and I hope to see you all on Tuesday, August 9th @ 9am at Jewell School!
