Dear Creekview Band Friends and Family,

What an awesome week for the Mustangs! Congratulation at the TOC Tournament of Champions Marching Showcase! The CHS Band earned 2nd place Class III and advanced to FINALS (11 bands) they had a great performance in finals before a great storm system came through. The Finals portion was cancelled and they used preliminary scoring as the final placements. CHS earned 9th place out of 11 bands! Special appreciation to our AMAZING band boosters, parent volunteers, drivers, band staff and students for great collaborative work and for FEEDING this great group of kids throughout the day! Next up! We will have a couple of days off from school, return for SAT Testing, critical marching rehearsals, Away game vs. Birdville and our AMAZING Parent performance/tamale luncheon on Saturday. The week after, we will have our last stadium rehearsal in preparation for UIL on Tuesday! I’ve included a sneak peek into next week as we prepare for the UIL contest!
