Happy Sunday Mighty Hawk Band!

I’d like to congratulate everyone on a wonderful finish to the competitive marching season. I am very proud to say that the Mighty Hawk Band finished the season ranked #16 in the State. Placing 16th out of 250 conference 5A Bands puts our program in the top .6 percent absolutely placing us in the upper echelon of Band Programs in the State of Texas. I couldn’t be more proud of you guys.

I’d also like to take a moment to congratulate the Mighty Hawk Band Drumline for having a wonderful performance and placing 3rd overall in the Lewisville Drumline Competition this past Saturday. Way to go guys!

Last but certainly not least, I wanted to take a moment to thank all of our parent volunteers, chaperones, logistics team, and board members for their countless hours making sure that the band has everything it needs to function. Your guys are appreciated more than you know by the students and the staff. Thank you all. We couldn’t do it with our you.

Annual Service Project / Canned Food Drive – This week marks the start of our annual canned food drive. All canned food items collected will be donated to the “BISD Christmas Providers” providing meals for needy families in BISD for the Holiday’s. To make things interesting, each year we host a little contest by band. The band collecting the most canned goods will receive a doughnut party. Last year we collected just over 1,500 items. In 2015, we collected over 3,000 items. Let’s see if this year we can break our old record…and more importantly, let’s help some families in need have a really special holiday. Participating classes are:

· Wind Ensemble – 5 year reigning Champions!

· Symphonic Band

· Concert Band

· Colorguard / Wiinterguard

For the most up to date information – Just 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)
