Senior photos!
We’re getting a lot of questions about when senior pictures are due.  This deadline isn’t until early 2019, so you have plenty of time.  (But don’t procrastinate either!)  Here’s more instructions:

We will need two photos.  One should be vertically oriented, that will be used in the yearbook and other media outlets like The Herald's graduation edition.  It should be free of watermarks, a large enough resolution for print, and a pose where the senior is the main focus.  (Which means it typically will not include props)

The second photo will be horizontal and used for the big screen during the graduation ceremony.  Any watermarks need to be in the corners, and it needs to be a good enough resolution for projection purposes.  This photo can show some personality, as long as it's school appropriate obviously.

Most professional photographers in the area already have a special link to send in photos, so all you would need to do is tell them which photos are selected.  They then will submit those photos to us directly.

If there are any other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me: eelrod@gjcs.k12.in.us

Jasper Parents,

Our 4th Annual Mattress Fundraiser is coming up on Saturday, November 10th from 10-5 in the JHS band room and we are using this event to help pay for NEW UNIFORMS within the coming seasons! This is a great opportunity for our program to raise much needed funds and for the students to raise money for their band fees and trips, but we need everyone to do their part to make this year another success!

Our goal is for every student to find at least ONE person who is in the market for a new mattress, and it’s not as hard as you might think. If you can talk to family members, friends, neighbors, co-workers and folks at your church or other activities, chances are you know someone who is in the market for this product.

Here are a few things that we need for everyone to do so that we can find potential customers to come check out our fundraiser:

We want this fundraiser to be as successful as possible for our program and if each family can find at least ONE person who needs a new mattress, the sky is the limit for us.

Thank you for your help, your time and your continued support.   Mr. Goodhue and the Jasper Band Boosters
