SUNDAY E-NEWS (AUG 16-20)

Happy Sunday Mighty Hawk Band!

We had a great week #2 of August Camp and the show is really starting to come along. We completed Mvt. #1 and got about ¼ of the Mvt. 2 on the field marching and playing. Everyone is really trying hard and the overall vibe of the band has been awesome. I’d also like to thank everyone for doing a great job at Thursday night’s Fanpledge Fundraiser. Please feel free to share the Fanpledge Webpage link withas many alumni, family, and friends over the next two weeks as possible to make this year’s fundraiser the most successful one ever. J

We’re looking forward to a great performance at BISD Convocation tomorrow morning with the Convocation Band, an awesome first week of school, and some super productive rehearsals with both the Non Varsity and Varsity members.
