Honorable Mention

I’d also like to personally thank Mrs. Susie McMahon for helping serve breakfast to the judges, and all of the student monitors who helped to make the audition run so smoothly.

A Message from Band President Jacob Villarreal / Chipotle Fundraiser – On Wednesday September 20th from 5:00-7:00pm, we will be having our first Spirit Night of the 2017-2018 season at Chipotle. Just tell them that you are with the Mighty Hawk Band and 50% of the money that you spend will go directly to the band, and ultimately, back to you! The money raised from this fundraiser will help pay for the Band Banquet at the end the school year. The more you guys participate at our Spirit Nights, the more we can put into one of the most special nights of the year!

We hope to see lots of friends and family there to make this fundraiser super successful! The address is

9127 Grapevine Hwy Ste 100, North Richland Hills, TX 76180-5685

Looking for Parent VolunteersWe are still looking for some folks that could help get the band on and off the field. It takes a lot to move all of our equipment on and off the field in the short amount of time that we get (especially the bridges). If you would be willing to help us at the football games or contest, please email me and we’ll put you to work. 🙂

For the most up to date informationJust as a friendly reminder, please find the most update information on the Mighty Hawk Band at www.MightyHawkBand.com or follow us on Facebook (Birdville HS Mighty Hawk Band)

See you guys tomorrow!
