Weekend Update 2-23-20

Dear M100 Families, Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Congratulations to our Winter Guard for fantastic performances yesterday at the TCGC Contest at Lehman High School. I was able to see two of the groups – the JV and Varsity groups and they did a terrific job! So much progress has been made! The C group has also made significant improvements! Ratings for the groups (in each of their respective groups): C group-7th, JV-4th, Varsity-6th. Their next show is Feb. 29th at Johnson HS in Buda, TX. Come out and support our Guard! They are awesome!

Announcements for this week:

FACILITIES UPDATE:

Students are doing an overall better job of keeping our band hall areas clean and our facilities team at BHS is Awesome! They have immediately addressed our needs in regards to replacing light bulbs in the brass locker room and repairing holes and breaks in the walls. Thank you! Students should continue to help monitor our spaces and encourage our fellow band members not to deface school property or abuse the facilities in any way. Please DO NOT LEAVE YOUR TRASH LAYING AROUND either. Thank you.
