Happy Sunday Mighty Hawk Band!

As we put the final period on the end of the 2016 marching band season, I wanted to thank everyone for all of their time, devotion, and hard work. I couldn’t be more proud of what we are doing, not just as a band, but as a family and a community. Seeing how many parents volunteered their time throughout the season, seeing how much support we had in the stands at every game and contest, and knowing how hard the students and staff worked from day 1 of June Camp through the end of the season…I just couldn’t be more proud of the Mighty Hawk Band of 2016. Thank you guys for a great marching season. Now on to concert season and remember…it’s a State Year for the Wind Ensemble. Let’s do it!
