UIL Region Success!!!

Congratulations to the Prosper Mighty Eagle Band for receiving unanimous Superior Ratings from all three of the judges from our UIL Region performance on Saturday!

We are now qualified to advance to the UIL Area competition, which will be held at the Mesquite ISD Stadium on Saturday, October 30th. The contest will be in a prelims and finals format.

Once UIL releases the final schedule (sometime early this week), we will send that out through Band News.

St. Louis Parent Meeting

There will be a parent Trip Meeting this upcoming Tuesday, October 19th at 6:30pm in the Prosper Band Hall to go over details, turn in remaining trip payments and to answer any additional questions. We will also have representatives from Music Travel Join us via teleconference for introductions and answer any questions, as well.

Final St. Louis Payment

Due to the overwhelming success of our FanPledge Fundraiser, our fantastic PBBC Executive Board has decided to pass the success directly on to each of our students and families. Originally, the final St. Louis Payment was set for $304; however, it will be lowered to $180 for a total payment of $480!

Payments can be made through each students CHARMS Ledger with a credit card or a check (made out to PBBC) can be deposited in the band deposit box, located outside the band offices in the band hall.

UIL Area Volunteers Are Needed

We have a great upcoming opportunity for parents to volunteer for the UIL Area Contest that is being held at our very own Children's Health Stadium. This event functions as a fundraiser for the Prosper and Rock Hill Bands.

The UIL Area Marching Contest will be held on Saturday, October 23rd, which is when we are in St. Louis at the BOA St. Louis Super Regional. This is a very important contest for our sister school, Rock Hill, and they need our support as well. If you are not planning on traveling with us to St. Louis, please consider volunteering for one of the time slots.

If you are interested in volunteering either for the Area Marching Contest, please click on the link below to access the Signup Genius to pick your preferred time slot and responsibility.

REMIND 101 Communications

We are excited to offer immediate text communications through Remind 101, a direct text-messaging program. We will be using the Remind system for important and immediate information needed to be sent out to our parents such as updated arrival times from events and football games, last minute rehearsal changes, etc . We still will utilize our normal ways of communication; however this will help us to get information out quickly. This will not be used for general communications.

If you would like to sign up for this service and receive communications, we are required by Prosper ISD for all parents to fill out the following Google Form. Once you submit the form, you will be given a text code to send to 81010 (the Remind 101 text messaging service). Once you type the code in the text body, then you are enrolled... It is as easy as that!

Absence Requests

Please read the Prosper Band Absence Policy by clicking the button below before submitting a request.

Prosper Mighty Eagle Band members are expected to be at all rehearsals, events and performances as listed on the Prosper Band Google Calendar. We understand that unavoidable conflicts may sometimes arise, but it is important that all students are present as we cannot teach an empty spot or chair. It is the student's responsibility to obtain all material that was missed and makeup the time appropriately. If you have attempted all aspects of working around this conflict, but cannot come up with a solution, please fill out the following absence request form ASAP.
