If I have missed anyone, please forgive me as this list coincides with the sign in sheets from yesterday.

I also have to take time to especially thank Jerry Crittenden. Mr. Crittenden created flyers, our online ordering system, managed orders, and organized our delivery day! Mr. Crittenden, you are such a large part of why this was a successful fundraiser and delivery, and I can’t thank you enough for the countless hours your dedicate to the program!


Lastly, we have 3 section winners of the mulch contest! Congratulations to the French Horns, Low Woodwinds & Double Reeds, and the Clarinets for winning the contest! We will discuss a date that works for our students to determine the section party.

Full Orchestra UIL

Congratulations to the Symphony Orchestra who earned straight 1s at the UIL Assessment on Thursday! I appreciate the time and effort that the students have put into this ensemble since December. Additionally, congratulations to all of the Brandeis String Ensembles who all earned straight 1s in their UIL performances led by Mr. Garcia-Hettinger & Ms. De Leon.

Well done!

Percussion Places 3rd

Congratulations to the Bronco Percussion Ensemble 1! The quartet made up of Nick Burroughs, Gavin Lotts, Shane Kruse and Fernando Pena performed at the Chamber & Concerto Competition at Reagan High School on Saturday and placed 3rd over all! A second ensemble made up of Matthew Sinclair, Natalie Sotelo, Brooke Schmoyer, Ethan Peralez, Emilio Magallan, Jackson Wood, and Mia Rasmussen also performed at the contest. Congratulations to all students involved and of course Mr. Suarez for leading our percussion program to consistent excellence!

Report Cards

The 6 weeks grading period came to an end on Friday and report cards will go home this coming Friday. With our Concert and Sight Reading UIL Assessment approaching, students need to be eligible in order to participate with their ensemble. Should a student be ineligible, they are still responsible for assignments and objectives related to the UIL music selections. If you are unclear about any of this, please contact me so that I may help.

Booster Meeting

Our monthly booster meeting will be on Tuesday, March 5th at 7 pm in the band hall. Please do your best to attend and spend time with our outstanding parents!
