We are still in need of volunteers for Region on Monday. If you are able to give any time at all between 2pm and 9:30pm, please contact Carissa Boyd at or 469-544-8079. Any time that you can give will be helpful!


All hands on deck! BISD is hosting the UIL 6A Area B Marching Contest THIS SATURDAY, OCTOBER 27 in the FAAC. This is a significant fundraiser for the band program, and we need your help to pull it off! 

The Mighty Hawk Band members, staff, chaperones, and logistics crew will all be away at another contest, which means we must rely on everyone else to step up and fill in the gaps. This is an all-day event with many different shifts and volunteer opportunities for students and adults. WE NEED YOUR HELP! Check out our SignUpGenius page for information and to sign up! Contact Carissa Boyd if you have questions. ( 469-544-8079)

October Payment - Just a friendly reminder that your October payment / balance of $50 is due. You can pay online Via Charms, or by check or cash in the band hall to Mr. Cheripka. Please be sure to make checks out to BHS with your students name / September Band Fee in the memo line.
