Watch JW & Yale Bands Perform Together

8th-grade band members joined the Yale Concert Band onstage at Woolsey Hall for the Yale Spring Concert April 7th. JW Music Teacher, Laura Traver, led the JW Band in a solo march before conducting the combined JW/Yale Band performing 'By the Rivers of Babylon'. 


Our musicians experienced music at a very high level and represented JWMS very well, both musically and personally, throughout the concert. A tremendous 'thank you' to Yale University for providing this experience and to the Yale band members for being such gracious hosts.

______________________________________________________ Health Requirements

Schedule your doctors appointments now - don’t wait - they book quickly! As stated in Board Policy 5141: “A child will not be allowed, as the case may be, to begin or continue in district schools unless health assessments are performed as required. Students transferring into the district must provide evidence of required Connecticut vaccinations, immunizations, and health assessments at enrollment and prior to school attendance.” See the list of required health assessments and plan ahead to make sure your child is all set to begin school.
