  • Thank you to the Grapevine-Colleyville Education Foundation! Today the GHS Band was awarded a $4,000 Foundation Grant to purchase microphones, stands, cables, and other electronics for recording. These are all essential to our current teaching model and future contest/evaluation models. The items purchased with the grant will be used for many years to come. We could not be more THANKFUL for this great gift!
  • Band Placements will be released later today. Along with the results will be a schedule for each group's in-person rehearsals. All students enrolled in Band are expected to attend all of their in-person rehearsals. Students should plan ahead to avoid any conflicts and contact their band director immediately with any issues. Please refer to the band handbook regarding excuses/unexcused absences.
