McAllen & Duncanville Parent Bus Information

Any parent who would like to travel with The Panther Band to the Bands of America (BOA) competition in McAllen Texas on Saturday, September 26 must sign up and pay the $40.00 fee by the first football game on Friday, August 28. Seats are on a first-come, first-served basis.
If you know you would like to go with the band to the Duncanville Invitational on October 24, you may sign up and pay for that trip at the same time. Again, first-come, first to get a seat.
You can pay the treasurer during Hot Dog Howdy where we can accept cash, check or credit card or drop off a check in director’s office.
Consider making the trip to support The Band in these two high-profile competitions.

Hot Dog Howdy this Friday

Hello Panther Band Family,

This Friday, August 21 will be the Hot Dog Howdy. There will be food and drinks available for sale.
It will also be the final date to sign up for Game Day Dinners. The Boosters will be available to accept payments for band and guard fees. If you paid for merchandise at Prep Days and did not pick it up, please bring your copy of the Prep Days Fee form to pick it up at Hot Dog Howdy.
The company that offers letterman jackets will also be there to answer questions about ordering a jacket.
And the highlight of the evening will be a full band rehearsal and a chance to hear the Panther Band perform the first movement for “Access Denied”

This is a great chance to visit with other band families, support the boosters and hear how far our young musicians have come in a few short weeks.

We look forward to seeing everyone there. Bring your lawn chair and enjoy!!!!

Special Booster Meeting Monday, August 3.

The O’Connor Band Boosters will be having a Special Meeting on Monday August 3rd at 6pm at the school. We may have to meet under the awnings if we cannot get inside the school.  The meeting will be only about 15-30 minutes max.  Items to be discussed are the approval of some unbudgeted items that the boosters need to have approved prior to prep days.  Please plan on attending if at all possible. I will make as brief as possible! Thank you for your time!!
