Colleyville Heritage Band

Week of 9/9 - 9/16

Happy Friday!

Tonight we are excited to perform in Ennis - another great East Texas opponent.


We will be debuting Part 1 and 2 of “Into Thin Air” and the winds and percussion will be in uniform. A few props may make an appearance, too.


Good luck to our students that are auditioning for the Region Jazz Bands on Saturday.


Thank you for all of the amazing donations to Fan Pledge - it was one of our best years yet!

Stadium Rehearsals

We are lucky to have access to Mustang Panther Stadium a few times this season. It is critical that everyone attends (it is a summative grade) and that you wear white shirts and bring your marching shoes / shakos. If you need a ride, please see a director. Parents! You are welcome to attend these rehearsals - it is pretty cool to watch.

Grades!

It is time to start being aware of your grades. We need everyone to pass so that our contest show is in the best shape possible.


September 23 is the important date - you must be passing all of your classes for that grade check.


Let us know how we can help! Academic excellence is part of our core values.
