Happy Sunday Mighty Hawk Band!

Congratulations to the Birdville High School Percussion Studio for putting on a great Percussion Ensemble Concert this past Tuesday. The Concert was super enjoyable to sit and listen to, and all of the groups and soloist played really well. A very special thank you goes out to Mr. Figueredo and the Percussion Staff for putting on such a great event.

Congratulations also goes out to everyone who participated in the Birdville Cluster Solo Contest this past Friday evening.
