UIL Marching Band “Playoffs”

Panther Band is on it’s road to the 5A State Marching Contest. Think of the journey like football playoffs…

  • Round 2 - UIL Area F Prelims (October 23 - Morning)

    • If we are in the TOP TEN, we advance to…

  • Round 3 - UIL Area F Finals (October 23 - Evening)

    • If we are in the top FOUR of Finals, we advance to…

  • Round 4 and 5 - UIL 5A State Marching Contest - Prelims and Finals (November 1-2)


The kiddos are working hard, and we know we can only control our daily growth and performance! Now more than ever, we need to be PRESENT and SUPERIOR in our rehearsals.

Grades

Today, October 15th, is the end of the first nine weeks’ grade check. Grades are finalized and “pulled” (except for waivers) on Sunday.


You must be passing all of your classes with a 70 or above to continue performing with the band past October 22! We’ve been talking about it for weeks - academics are important and you are all important as we finish our competitive season!

Booster Notes

Brainstorm help needed!



When we set our budget last spring, we had no idea what we were facing this fall. Pre-covid normalcy? Lockdown? We budgeted for roughly $6 per student per meal, but since no restaurants are cutting deals or offering to sponsor meals, we are spending a lot more on meals than we anticipated. Financially, we can handle it, but we're tapping into our reserves as food costs soar. If you have any connections with a restaurant or possible corporate sponsor, will you please reach out? Or maybe your family would like to donate a meal? Any ideas or help you can offer would be appreciated!



Here's our sponsorship form -- send it to everyone you know!


Senior Night is coming October 29!
