IGSMA Solo & Ensemble Contest
CONGRATS to all FCJHS students who participated in IGSMA Solo & Ensemble Contest on Friday, March 13th!!!  Overall, we earned 32 Division I ratings, 20 Division II ratings, and 2 Division III ratings!  (See file in 'FCJHS Information' below for individual event ratings).  GREAT JOB FCJHS BAND AND CHORUS STUDENTS!!!!
March 5th Concert- CANCELLED
March 5th concert will be rescheduled.  With the great amount of snow days, we are feeling rather set back in rehearsal time.  That also happens to be ISAT testing week, so we felt it would be best to reschedule the concert for a later date.  I am working on finding our reschedule date and will post it as soon as I have it set!  Thank you for your flexibility and patience- winter has wreaked havoc on this semester!
