Sunday E-News (May 17-22)

Happy Sunday Mighty Hawk Band!

Congratulations on a fantastic week Mighty Hawk Band family! Thank you to all of you who came out to hear your students perform live at our Senior Recognition Spring Band Concert this past Tuesday! Congratulations to our 2021 Senior Band students who performed in their final concert as a Mighty Hawk Band member.


Congratulations also goes out to our Birdville Cluster Concerto finalists who performed this last Friday evening at Gateway Church. Mikayla Hayes, Jacob Cohen, Matthew Leeper, Lauren Cram, Reina Corona, and Sophie Connolly were our six finalists representing the very best of the Mighty Hawk Band. A major congratulations goes out to MATTHEW LEEPER for being named the 2021 Birdville Concerto Grand Champion!!! Overall, we could not be more proud of all the performances Friday night.


Lastly, we could not be more thrilled for the turnout we had at this weekend's 2021-2022 Parent Meeting. We had standing room only (and some were even in the AP Music Theory hallway) and there was so much excitement and enthusiasm for next season. We are so excited to have a normal marching season this fall, get ready! If you missed the meeting and need any information regarding Summer Band and the fall season, please contact Mr. Cheripka for details.
