Pre-UIL Marching Results
Thank you to everyone who came out to support that band and color guard at the last two contests. Students have been making a lot of improvement in marching and playing as we head into our major contests of the season. The band placed 3rd at each of the last two contests and hopes to have a good showing at the UIL Marching Contest on Saturday. Please come out and support that band and color guard at these upcoming competitions.

Band Equipment Trailer Loading and Unloading
Each time we attend a game or contest, we have a group of men who work very hard to load and unload all instruments and equipment needed by the band and color guard.This is a big task that occurs twice each time we attend an activity. If you would like to help out, please fill out the volunteer clearance form and notify me after doing so. The load times for each event are posted in the weekly schedule. Show up and check in with with Robert, he will let you know what you can do to help.

Calling ALL Band Parents: Volunteers Are Needed to Help With Concessions at Abshier Stadium
The 2018-19 Fall schedule for volunteer opportunity has been posted on Please visit the Deer Park High School Band home page at to access the SignUp link and to review the dates available for volunteer hours.

The Band Booster Club helps raise money for band expenses throughout the year and our top revenue event is running the concessions at Deer Park Abshier Stadium. The concessions are open during all home games for Football Varsity, Junior Varsity and Freshman, TIFI Little League Football, Boys Soccer Varsity and Junior Varsity, Boys Baseball Varsity, Junior Varsity and Sophomore and DPHS Graduation. This is an opportunity for band students and parents to volunteer a few hours to help out during these events. As an extra bonus, volunteers will earn a $10 charms credit for each shift worked which will be applied to the student account. This is a good way to get a head start on fund raising for our next band trip! If you have any questions, please contact Gracie at

We appreciate your time and commitment to the Deer Park High School Band Booster Club and look forward to working with each of you!
