Grapevine Mustang Band

Week of 9/15/19

Director's Notes

Good afternoon, everyone,

Thank you to the students and parents that made the first game in Mustang Panther Stadium a success! We had a blast and were excited to celebrate Mustang Football.

We would like to extend a HUGE shout out to ALL of our awesome volunteers! From those who made sure our kids were fed before the game, made sure uniforms were in order, pit crew, stand watchers, and our fantastic concession stand workers for the varsity as well as the freshmen games.

All of these moving parts come together and make for successful program!
