Good Evening Mighty Hawk Band Families!

We have thoroughly enjoyed the return of students to our classroom for rehearsals this week, as well as the active engagement from our virtual learners. The culture of positivity and incredible energy that students have brought each day has been such an uplifting and positive experience, thank you students and families for making this happen! In the spirit of pressing forward with the excellence of the Mighty Hawk Band program, we are rolling out an electronic enrollment for the Private Lesson Program offered by our wonderful Birdville ISD Private Lesson Staff. If you would like to enroll (and even if you are already enrolled with your private lesson teacher), please take a moment to submit this form for our records - 2020 Mighty Hawk Band Private Lessons Form. Private lessons are strongly encouraged for the opportunity of more individualized instruction and financial assistance is available for those in need.


If you are on the fence or have questions, please review the information at the link above and then reach out to a band director to discuss this further. A roster of most of our Private Lesson Staff is included on our webpage (https://www.mightyhawkband.com/private-lessons) if you would like to view their contact information or explore the high caliber musicians that teach with the Mighty Hawk Band.

Happy Labor Day Mighty Hawk Band!

I hope that everyone is enjoying a great Labor Day weekend. As we look forward to tomorrow’s first day of face to face learning, I wanted to remind everyone of a few first day of school items:

· Be sure to do you COVID-19 self-evaluation at home before departing for school

· Be sure to wear your mask!

· Once entering the band hall, everyone must use the hand sanitization station

· Do you very best to stay socially distanced at 6ft away from each other at all times

· Be sure to bring your instrument and binder with music as we will be assigning you your lockers in the instrument storage room.


Tomorrow is going to be a lot of “how to” protocol due to the new operation rules as well as some paperwork and getting everyone organized. Please do your best to come with an open mind and a great attitude. We can’t wait to see you guys and to get started back on our path to normalcy!
