Great First Football Game!

Thank you to all of the students, parent volunteers and attendees to last night's first home football game! It was so fun to be back in our very own Children's Health Stadium!

While we are so excited to be back, there have been many changes put in place. We will continue to work with our PISD Athletic Department to ensure we are providing a great experience for the crowd and our students. It seems our band students were providing too much spirit through our playing during the game (way to go kids!!!!!), so we will be making some slight adjustments. More information will be given to our students through their Google Classroom and in class.

Thank you again to the students and the parents for all of your continued support.... you are the best!

Safety Protocol

It can be difficult to be the model of student/staff safety in today's COVID world; however, we are so proud of how our students have taken on the many challenges of playing an instrument in a large group during a pandemic. We must continue to properly practice social distancing, wearing our masks during school events and always playing our P.A.R.T.

Our students have done an AMAZING job of adhering to the COVID procedures set in place at the beginning of the year and it shows. People are noticing and positively commenting in your participation. Keep it up!

We will continue to work with the PISD administration and guidelines set by state and local municipalities throughout this school year. As soon as we are able to make any changes, we will; however, the continued risk around us is still present and we must be diligent in all of our actions.

It can sometimes be hard to be the example; however, the influence we hold to the world around us is significant as members of the Prosper Mighty Eagle Band. We are Proud and we are ONE!

Uniform Cleaning

All uniform parts can be either professionally laundered or laundered at home. If laundering at home please follow these steps. **Any damage to the uniform parts caused by improper leaning will be the responsibility of the student.

  • Bib pants (overall pants) & jacket can be washed in COLD water and dried on the COLD setting. HOT is BAD!!!
  • Bib pants and jackets should be washed separately to avoid any snagging during the washing process.
  • Hand wash gauntlets only. These must be hand-washed in cool water then towel dried to remove excess water. They should lie flat to dry. DO NOT PLACE IN A DRYER.
  • NO USE OF FABRIC SOFTENER on any uniform part.
  • The inside of the shako (hat) can be wiped with a mild detergent, such as woolite or a mild dishwashing detergent.
  • No part of the uniform should be placed in a garment bag when wet.... things will grow.

When in doubt...... have it professional laundered! ;-)
