Colleyville Heritage Band

Week of 8/6 - 8/13

Happy Friday!


Welcome to August! Two weeks of band camp is in the books, and we can play most of our music for the fall, perform the Spirit Show, and we are diligently learning Part 1 of Spark!


The directors are super proud of our student performers. We’ve talked a lot about “Being present. Being kind. Being superior. Working hard. Making memories.” The kids are living up to those goals!

Uniform Fittings!

For the first time since 2019, we're getting the band in their uniforms! We'll be doing uniform fittings Saturday, August 14, in the band hall. Fitting the kids is an all-hands-on-deck process, but no special skills are needed.


Here's how to sign up:


  1. Call your favorite band parent buddy to coordinate which shift you'll volunteer for together.
  2. Sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0a4daaae23abf85-uniform
