Winterguard - Congratulations to our MHS Winterguard on a wonderful performance at Pace HS this past Saturday. If you haven't seen them yet, you will have 2 more chances coming up at Escambia HS on March 12th and the GCGPC Championship at Tate HS on April 2nd. Please come out and support these amazing performers.
FBA Concert MPA - This Thursday is the most important performance of the year for the MHS Winds and Percussion! This is the FBA Concert Music Performance Assessment. The complete itinerary is below. We will wear the normal uniform minus helmets, gauntlets, and gloves. Concert Band performs at 4:45 and Symphonic Band at 7:45. These are FREE performances, so please come out and show your support for these students. Students, make sure you bring money for dinner. The Symphonic, Concert, AND Panther Bands will all attend this.
8th Grade Showcase - Next Tuesday, the entire marching and jazz bands and guard will be out of 1st - 3rd periods for the MHS 8th Grade Showcase. Students will need to wear their band shirts and blue jeans/Shorts for this. This is NOT 8th Grade Band Day. It is a pep rally/orientation that MHS puts on for our incoming 8th graders.
BPA Board Nomination - The BPA is now accepting nominations to the 2022-23 BPA Board of Directors. We will be sending a form out this week with descriptions of offices and who you would like to nominate. You can CLICK HERE for the description in the BPA by-laws in the mean time. We will elect for all positions; President, First Vice President, Second Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Trustee. Rebecca Justice has volunteered to be the chairperson of the nomination committee. If you have any questions or would like to nominate someone without using the form to be sent out, please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Nominations will be accepted through the BPA meeting in April.
That is all for now. I hope you have a marvelous week!
