Dear Students and Parents –
We have reached our goal for the 2016 season by qualifying for the CBA State Quarterfinals and we are in 12th place! All competitions and rehearsals have led to this point, and I am so proud of the Marching hawks for accomplishing this goal. The next step is upon us, and I’m looking forward to the band’s performance at CBA Quarterfinals and possibly Semifinals! #finishstrong
Parents, I hope you will plan to attend this competition and cheer for us. We want to hear many HHS parents as we take the field for performance. I know the competition is on a normal workday, but it is a very special day for your band students. It will be worth the drive and time to see your bandie performing at CBA State Quarterfinals. You must enter the US Air Force Academy grounds through the North Entrance (Exit 156 off of I-25) and provide a valid driver’s license, proof of insurance and vehicle registration. Admission prices are listed below. More information can be found at cbamarching.com under State Championship information. --Mrs. Fleeman
