Students and Parents,
The Legacy Marching Festival grants us the opportunity to perform our 2015 show in our own school district at the Adams 12 Five-Star Stadium (across the street from Thornton High School). What a great way to begin the competition season. I know the festival day will include a great performance from our HHS Marching Hawks, helpful and insightful critique from some of the best marching band educators in the nation, and the opportunity to see other outstanding bands from Colorado. Let’s make this a great day for the HHS Marching Hawks. Parents, please consider attending the festival (plan to arrive by 8:40 a.m.; park at THS and take the foot-bridge over Washington Street to the stadium). It means so much to have you there, and we want to hear your cheers of support as we enter and exit the field! Let’s roll!
