Band News (week of 4/15-4/21)

Hey Falcons! Please see below from Mr. Bond's email for the week of Monday (4/15) through Sunday (4/21)...

Good Morning!

Best of luck to the Concert 1 and Symphonic Bands at their UIL performances next week. Both bands perform at Katy High School, with Concert 1 performing on Wednesday at 5:00 pm and Symphonic performing on Thursday at 2:30 pm. We hope to see lots of friendly faces there to support these hard working students!

Band Banquet

It is time to get your tickets for the end of the year band banquet! This is always a great evening and gives us an opportunity to celebrate the wonderful accomplishments of our students. Please see the attached invitation for more details and go purchase your tickets by clicking on the following link.

All senior band members get into the banquet for free but you still must go to the link above to reserve your ticket. The deadline to purchase all tickets is April 26.

Band Banquet - Seniors

SENIORS-We want your baby pictures and other pictures of you growing up! Please send your pictures to by April 20 for you to be included in the banquet slideshow. Please also don’t forget to complete your senior information form ASAP.


Beginning next year, UIL is requiring every band member to have a physical on file with the school in order to participate in marching band (in the last two years, this has only been a Katy ISD requirement). There are multiple ways to take care of this, including seeing your family doctor, going to an urgent care, or getting a Katy ISD sponsored physical. If you are interested in getting a Katy ISD physical, please go to the link below to see when they are being offered. Your first opportunity to do this at OTHS is May 15. Please understand though that every student who participates in KISD athletics is also required to get a physical, so these sessions get pretty full. You can, however, go to any of the dates listed on any campus if another date is more convenient for you.

Katy ISD Physical Dates:

No matter where you go, you must use the official Katy ISD Physical Evaluation form, which can be found by going to the following link:

You must have your physical on file with the band before summer band starts. I would recommend making a copy for your own records before turning the form in to me. If you also participate in athletics, you will need to turn in separate copies to the band and to the athletics department. If you would prefer to scan in your physical form and email it to me that is fine.

Have a great weekend!
