All month long on all of our social media platforms, JP Schools bands were recognized alongside their teachers, for Music in Our Schools Month. We are so grateful for our educators who teach our kids lifelong skills and a love for music.
Adams Middle School
For #musicinourschoolmonth , we want to highlight J. Q. Adams Middle School Pathfinder Band which consists of 157 members, led by band director Nicole Lawnicki. The Adams Band gives three concerts a year in addition to participating in other community events. Students are encouraged to be self-driven, curious, and to be themselves. #MIOSM
West Jefferson High School
The West Jefferson High School Marching Buccaneers under the leadership of Eddie Williams, Jr. has more than doubled the West Jeff band within the last year. Additionally, the band is learning other music styles such as experience marching, symphonic jazz, and brass band music.
