Congratulations to the Keller High School Band - UIL State Marching Band Finalist
The Keller High School Marching Band earned a tenth place finish at the UIL 6A State Marching Band Contest in San Antonio on November 4.
This marks the highest position a Keller ISD band has placed in the state competition since 1999, when the then 4A Fossil Ridge Band placed 4th and Keller High Band finished 2nd.
Congratulations to the students, parents, and Keller High community on an unforgettable season! And thank you to directors Mark McGahey, Ryan Heath, Frank Chapple, Daniel Bloss, and the entire marching band staff for your dedication to the Keller Band Program!
Fossil Ridge Student's Ornament to be on Dispay at State Capitol
Jesus' ornament will hang on the Texas House Capitol Christmas Tree. It's a great honor for a great student. Jesus is the student art teacher Chris Brown.
Drumline Contest Results
The Keller Central Drumline took second place and outstanding front ensemble in the Division II Silver classification at the Lonestar Contest at Marcus Stadium.
After barely missing out on finals in the Division I classification at Lonestar, Keller High made the short trip to Lewisville Stadium, where they won their division, and took home outstanding cymbal, tenor, and snare captions at the Lewisville Drumline Invitational.
