Photos: ‘Jammin with Santa’ for the Puerto Rico Project

The Princeton High School Studio Band raised more than $1,850 on Saturday for the Puerto Rico Project. The project will bring half a dozen students from Puerto Rico to Princeton for a few weeks in February. The students will compete at the Berklee Music Festival together. The band is also collecting supplies to be sent to Puerto Rico.

On Saturday, as the band performed, visitors enjoyed breakfast and kids made holiday decorations as Santa and Mrs. Claus posed with visitors of all ages and danced to the music. Princeton Recreation Director Ben Stentz was Santa and Princeton High School Assistant Principal Angela Siso Stentz was Mrs. Claus.

The band will collect funds and items until Feb. 7, the night of the Berklee Preview Show at John Witherspoon Middle School. The event will feature ensembles traveling to Berklee, as well as the band students from Puerto Rico.

Items being collected include medical supplies, school supplies new underwear in original packaging, new pajamas in original packaging,  water filters, insect repellant, batteries, and flashlights.

Supplies and donations should be labelled “Puerto Rico Project” and dropped off at the main office at the high school. Checks for monetary donations should be made out to “PHS Band Parents’ Association.”
