High School Band Information
Parents of 8th grade students - our hope is that your student chooses to be part of the Reedy or Frisco High School Band! The high school bands are fantastic organizations where your kid can be surrounded by like-minded high-achieving students, where they can make great friends, and where they have the opportunity for leadership!
We know that our Pearson Band students are involved in many different activities. They can continue to do those activities in addition to band in high school. Any activity can be combined with band! Below are some examples of 4-Year Plans that show how band can be scheduled with advanced academics, athletics, and other classes. The below plans specify Frisco High School, but will apply to any Frisco ISD high school.
Please let Mrs. Black and Mr. Jenson know if you have questions about high school band. We both believe that band is one of the best things your student can be a part of in high school and hope they choose to continue.
