Change to Tax Credit Donation Deadline
Due to a change in the law, tax credit donations for the 2015 tax year can be made until April 15, 2016. Because of this change, the District Office will NOT be open December 31, as in previous years.
Your school tax credit donations can provide DVUSD students with opportunities to after school and summer programs, field trips, music, and athletic programs or any other extracurricular activity. The Arizona tax credit program (A.R.S. 43-1089.01) allows a tax credit of up to $200 for individuals and up to $400 for married couples, filing jointly, in support of extracurricular activities. The tax credit reduces your tax burden to the state of Arizona, dollar for dollar. It also reduces your taxable income to the federal government, usually by 1/3 of your donation.

The Jaguar Pride received a rating of Superior with Distinction at NAU Band Day this past Saturday. We were the only band at this competition that earned this rating! A rating of Superior can be compared to an 'Exceeding' score on the AIMS test. A Superior with Distinction means that we 'Exceeded' in all six adjudicated areas (Music-2 judges, Visual, General Effect, Colorguard, and Percussion). Because of the band's recent success, we are the #2 ranked band in Division 1. Divisions are decided by total number of band members that perform. This is our first year in Division 1 and we are the smallest band in the division - 97 members. Our division includes bands that are 154 members (SDOHS) all he way to 190+ (Corona del Sol high school). The Jaguar Pride can hold their own!
Out of 130 Altos, we have first and second chair Alto in the All-State Jazz Choir.

In the Jazz Clinic choir we had one student place:
Fifth Chair, Peyton Wayne (Junior).
Out of 142 Sopranos that tried out for the All-State Jazz Choir, we have the first chair soprano.
First Chair, Taylor Ellsworth (Junior) scored 290/300 points.
Tenth Chair, Jackie Juarez (Senior).
2nd Alternate, Peyton Wayne (Junior)
5th Alternate, Julia Davis (Junior)
5th Chair, Daphne Sietz (Senior)
8th Chair, Sonia Tomaso (Junior)
11th Chair, Sam Kunselman (Sophmore)
12th Chair, Andrew Tortorella (Senior)
First Alternate Tenor, Ryan Gorman (Senior)

We had the second most amount of students in the show choir, and we had 2 kids make the All-State Jazz choir. There was not a school that had more than 2 in that choir. I am so glad we are able to represent Boulder Creek with these numbers. It is a reflection of the school and the talent it possesses.
