Want to help?

  Practically everything the boosters do has some interaction with our band students.  Therefore, NISD requires us to have background checks which are a quick and easy process to fill out.  We are targeting 7/25 to have all background checks completed, so that we can hit the ground running with plenty of volunteers at the beginning of August. Even if you aren't sure how you might help the boosters and the band this year, fill out a background check now so that it's not a roadblock in the future.  More information and a link to the NISD background check is available at NISD Background Check

Last Week of School! - 5/31/16 -- 6/2/16

We finally made it to the last week of school! Best wishes to the senior class of 2016 as they embark on the new journey of college and the work force!  Enjoy!  For all else we are wrapping up the week of finals/auditions just before mini-camp and jazz camp. Congratulations of finishing the year.  For all, 9th graders to seniors, take time to look back on the growth and success of this school year, how much you have improved as a person and musician and thank you for a good year.  Parents, thank you for all of your support, trust, and help throughout the year. This program cannot run without parent involvement and assistance.  Boosters -- you are amazing!  I see three branches in making a successful band program: student, parent and band staff participation.  This year was great, but next year we be even stronger!
