Happy Sunday Mighty Hawk Band!

 Congratulations to everyone for a great performance at our first home game of the season. We heard nothing but positive feedback about the show, the guard costumes and silks, and the band in general. I’d also like to personally thank all of the parents who helped get the band, the front ensemble, and the props on and off the field. The show wouldn’t be possible if it wasn’t for your help. Thank you guys.
