SUNDAY E-NEWS (Nov. 15-19)

Happy Sunday Mighty Hawk Band!


We had a great week of Concert Rehearsals last week and an absolutely wonderful turn out at our 8th grade recruiting social last Thursday. A very special thank you goes out to the Mighty Hawk Band "Hawk Ambassadors" and Leadership for putting together some fun games and activities. A special thank you goes out to the BUBB parents for putting together and serving our meal as well. It was a great night!

“The Mighty Hawk Band Canned Food Drive” – We are super excited to get to bring back our annual canned food drive to help out families in need this holiday season. Per usual, to make things a little more fun, we will collect items based on Winter Concert Ensembles (Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, Concert Band, and Colorguard). The Ensemble that collects the most canned goods by the end of the school day on Friday will receive doughnuts one morning when we return after the Thanksgiving Break. Let’s make it happen everyone!!!
