Greetings Fellow Eagles! We had a LOT going on last week, so I apologize for missing out on a week of updates. But I do have some awesome news to share with you all:
UIL RESULTS: Our UIL season has finally come to a close, and after earning a Divison 1 in marching band in the fall semester, the second round of UIL competition happened this week. To earn a sweepstakes in high school, a band must have also earned a 1 in marching. Here are the results from UIL Concert and Sightreading:

BAND BASH: We are in the early stages of planning our annual Band Bash!

Below are the baseline logistics that we have ironed out so far:
Date: Thursday, May 11, 2023
Time: 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
We would love to have your assistance with planning this event for our students! The Band Bash planning committee will meet a few times in person and then via virtual meetings as needed. It won’t be a heavy lift, rather it will be a fun time for the Band parents to get together and plan an awesome event for our students!
If you are interested in joining the Band Bash planning committee, please send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please let me know if you have any questions.
That is going to be all for this week. Stay tuned to next week’s updates for more things. May is jam-packed with lots of events, so we will come back later with more information. Hope everyone has a great week, and we will see you on the next one!
