The SJHS band program will be having a Spring Concert Thursday, April 24 at 7 p.m. in the PAC.  Regular admission is $5 for anyone ages 6 and older; however, if you have a South Jones Faculty Badge, your admission is FREE.  The students would love to see as many of their other teachers there as possible! Our goal is to pack out the PAC to where there is standing room only!  The students have worked extremely hard this year and it will all come to an end for this year with a climatic performance.



Several people have asked about old yearbooks.  Last year - $30, 2012 - 2011 $25, 2010 - 2009 $20, and 2005 - 1992 $10.  If you are interested, please let Mrs. Bush know, and she will send yearbook students with your books.
