Happy Sunday Mighty Hawk Band!

Congratulations to everyone on a great performance at the UIL Region 31 Marching Contest this past Tuesday. I’m very proud to say that for the 20th consecutive year in a row, the Mighty Hawk Band has received a 1st Division Rating by all three judges. The 1st division rating also qualified us to advance on to the Area F marching contest this coming Saturday at the FAAC. I couldn’t be more proud of the students and their performance.
