What a Week!!!!!!

This past week was full of great events and lasting memories. It was so special!

Special thank you to Ann Skaehill and her team for putting together a fun tribute (and AMAZING cookies from the Cookie Rack) for our Seniors at practice on Thursday. In addition, Ann and her team has done a FANTASIC job of feeding our kids each football game. Our bellies thank you all!!!!!

Friday was another special night honoring our Seniors at the annual Senior Night before the football game. It was a night full of emotions and was very special for us all. Thank you to Carrie Archer, Kierstin Vance, Kevin and Robyn Lilly and all of the other people that made this night so special!!!

We would be remiss in not thanking the tireless work of Tammy Meyer and her team of concession stand workers present at each of the home football games and many other sporting events. Your presence and dedication to the Prosper Mighty Eagle Band is felt and much appreciated!

We ended the week with a fun movie night at the Frisco Cinemark watching ELF! A special thank you to Kierstin Vance, Kelly Harris, Denise Broyles, Robyn Lilly and everyone else involved for helping last night be such a success and to the rest of the PBBC Board for providing this opportunity for our students!

We should be receiving more information about the pictures taken on Friday night for our Seniors. We were hoping to send this out in time for this week's band news; however as we receive them, we will relay the information to you.

Thank you to all of the parent volunteers and helpers that make the Prosper Mighty Eagle Band so MIGHTY!!! We could not do it without you!

Congratulations to the students that advanced to the Phase 2 auditions currently underway. We had several last minute additions decided by the region to advance (they are designated with a *). We are so excited for all that have advanced.

All advancing students were featured and recognized at the Black Out Pep Rally held last Friday at PHS.

These students represent the highest level of musicians throughout our Region and their achievement is of great honor due to the competitiveness of this contest. Please help us congratulate all of the advancing students and to all of the students that participated.

We are asking that all students send their uniform to be professionally laundered to be ready for next year's distribution.

DO NOT SOAK OR PLACE YOUR SHAKO IN A WASHER OR DISHWASHER!!! Please keep your gloves, shoes and garment bag.

We will accept uniforms beginning Tuesday, December 15th and will continue collecting them for the rest of the week. Please begin to bring your uniform to the cleaners as soon as possible to ensure it will be ready to turn-in. We will discuss the turn-in process in class this week.
