Dear Mansfield High School Band Parents:
As you may know, Region 5 band auditions take place all week at Mansfield and Birdville ISD. Some of the auditions will be held on Saturday, Dec. 12 at Birdville High School. Coincidentally, this is also the day of the Mansfield High School football semifinals game in Waco.
To allow our band students to take part in auditions while still supporting our football team, students who are finished with their auditions by 12:15 p.m. on Saturday will have the opportunity to ride a district-provided bus from Birdville ISD to the Waco football game.
Students who have auditions after 12:15 p.m. are welcome to attend the game, but will have to find their own means of transportation to Waco.
As you are aware, the all-region process is an important process and the pathway for our band students to possibly earn scholarship opportunities. We apologize for the conflict of scheduling; however, dates for area, regional, and state auditions are established before the school year begins by the Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA).
Thank you for your support and understanding.
Principal – Mansfield High School
