Spring Recording Contest Success!

This past spring and summer the Wind Ensemble under the direction of Mr. Barnard and the Symphonic Band under the direction of Mr. Haddock competed in a series of recording contests - we just received some exciting results!


The Symphonic Band competed in the “Citation of Excellence” state competition and placed in the top 5 of 97 entries and earned a “Citation Winner” award.


The Wind Ensemble entered the “Mark of Excellence” national competition and placed in the top 7 out of 376 entries from 39 states and earned a “National Winner” award.


The Wind Ensemble also entered the “Medal of Distinction” national competition and received the “Encore Circle” award, ranking them in the top 3 in their class. We will find out if they are the national winner at a later date - stay tuned!


Way to go Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band!

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.

Disney Spring Trip!

Disney Registration continues through this week. Directors and Boosters are working to get the answers to your questions from the travel company, Directors Choice, and hope to have information about travel packages and itineraries soon.
