High school is more about academics; there are clubs, art programs, and memories to be made. The largest extracurricular program at Sierra Pacific High School is the band and color guard. Part of this program is the jazz band, where students sacrifice an hour before school every morning to practice in. The jazz band also goes to festivals and performs under the Sierra Pacific name, doing better each year. This program costs the district no extra money, yet it is extremely valuable to the students and the band director,
Mr. Detlefsen. If plans go as followed and the jazz band is cancelled from now on, both the high school and the students will be lacking an artistic outlet forever, which is exactly what should not happen. Please sign this petition to help keep the SPHS Jazz Band!
