Weekend Update 5-28-22
Dear M100 Family,
Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Please remember to honor all military members who have died while serving in U.S. forces this weekend. This is also the last Weekend update until mid-July. (there may be a couple of emails between now and then about the parade). It’s been a fantastic school year in many ways and we just wrapped it up with a very successful day at the Texas State Solo & Ensemble contest today!
Congratulations to the following State Solo & Ensemble participants:
Zachary LInklater - Good rating
Jennifer Huscgana, Andrew Johnson, Marshall Blazier, the Tuba/Euph Quartet (Tristan Hernandez, Matthew Melendez, Kole Petersen, and Angel Rios-Torres), and the Horn Quartet (Zach LInklater, John Grant, Tim McCormick, and Jacob Wiley) - Excellent rating
Jacob Wiley, Savannah Fish, Ethan Rasmussen, Sam Fothergill, Jordan Huscgana, and Angel Rios-Torres - Superior rating
An awesome day for BHS at a very difficult competition! Congratulations to All!
A HUGE thanks to all who participated in the BHS Graduation Band! You did an excellent job and our Principal, Mr. Smith said everything was Perfect! He was very pleased and so were we! Thanks so much for making the ceremony even more special!
Please read on for some new information and important reminders:
