See you at the 2022 Mustang Band Banquet!

Friday, May 20th, 6-11 PM at the Texas Star in Euless.

Band Banquet is a time for us to gather to celebrate all the accomplishments of Mustang Band over the year, recognize and send off our Class of 2022 Seniors.

Band Banquet tickets are on sale NOW! Friday, April 22 - Saturday, May 7.

Tickets are $35 per person except for Seniors. Seniors who bring a date must purchase a ticket unless they are a band Senior.

Payment is due by end of the day on May 7th.

Seat selection will be May 16 - 18th either before or after school.

PARENTS: You are invited and encouraged to attend the dinner and awards portion. Do not listen to your children when they say you shouldn't come. We are band family and it's a great time to celebrate the 2021-22 band year.

If you are still not sure, read this. (link to attachment)

Dress is "dress your best."

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: Help is needed in several ways to help with the banquet including chaperoning the dance, check-in, and decorating. Because we are on a Friday this year, we will need more parent help since students will be in school. I also added a Thursday night option to prep decor (blowing up balloons (I have a pump) and other items.) If you can help for part of the time - just add that in the comments. Appreciate it! Here is the link to the sign-up genius.

Any questions, please text or email Kim Bentson. (713.818.7445,
