First Week...... CHECK!!!

Thank you to all of the parents and students for an eventful first "week" of school! While there were many obstacles thrown our way, it was so great to see everyone, both in-person and through e-learning, and be together again! We are looking forward to a great year!

We will be going outside on a regular basis each day during classes to practice for short periods of time beginning this Tuesday, along with playing inside. Students should always bring a bottle or two of water with them to school to stay hydrated throughout the day.

As discussed last week in classes, all students are required to bring their home wire stands with them as a part of their regular supplies to help minimize the amount of shared equipment used in the band hall. It is also important that all students acquire the appropriate band lyre and flip folder for their instrument. More information is available in "Band Supplies" link below.

After School Rehearsals Begin Next Week!

We are excited to begin our after-school sectionals beginning the week of August 24th on Mondays and Thursdays beginning after school from 4:45pm to 7:00pm each day for WW/Brass/Percussion and 5:30pm to 7:30pm for Color Guard. We will host after-school rehearsals on the PHS campus. Students should plan to bring their rehearsal clothes (white t-shirt, shorts and athletic shoes for winds/percussion and black attire for color guard), sunscreen and water to school for a quick change after school ends.

Meet The Eagles Event Scheduled

We have just received word that the annual "Meet the Eagles" event has officially been scheduled for September 19th. The details of this event has not been released yet; however, please mark the date on your calendars to celebrate all athletic and spirit organizations at PHS! More details to come....

Band Supplies

Please look through the following list to ensure you have all of the appropriate band supplies for the 2020-21 School Year.

Band Registration

Be on the look-out for a Band Registration e-mail later this week. We have delayed the release to try to get a better idea of what this year will look like and it is go time! The Prosper Band Booster Club (PBBC) has done some incredible work with the budget this year and has been able to reduce the overall fees significantly this year to $300 plus any required supplies and accessories. As always, members will have the option of paying it at once or over time. The process for this on-line registration should take about 15-25 minutes.
