ATHENS HIGH SCHOOL
"PRIDE OF THE HORNET"
 BAND 

NEW INFORMATION AVAILABLE: THERE IS NOW AN ORDER FORM FOR YOUR VIEWING SO THAT YOU CAN PLAN FOR BAND FEES. PLEASE KNOW THAT THERE WILL BE ONE MORE ITEM ADDED IN THE FUTURE (UNIFORM SHORTS) DUE TO OUR HAVING WHITE PANTS. I WILL TRY TO MAKE THEM AS AFFORDABLE AS POSSIBLE. 


ALSO, PLEASE LOOK AT THE BAND HANDBOOK. I HAVE UPDATED THE UNIFORM FEES TO $40.00 DUE TO OUR HAVING BRAND NEW UNIFORMS AND WHITE PANTS. THEY WILL NEED EXTRA CARE AND CLEANING. 

NOTICE: In an effort to not waste paper, as well as propel ourselves more into the 21st century, I would ask that everyone views/downloads the PDF files for the band handbook and medical form. Please print the last few pages of the band handbook and the separate medical page so that you may turn it in during the first week of summer band. I will have limited physical copies available Day 1 if you do not have printer capabilities. 

Thank you-
Mr. Morman 




Welcome  

The Athens High School Band competes in conference 4A.  We specialize in military style marching which is based on tradition with dignity and pride.  We march at all Athens High School football games, UIL Marching contest and at local parades.  During the spring semester we perform several concerts and participate in UIL Concert and Sight-reading contest.  The band most recently performed in the Disney World Parade, and has also performed in Washington D.C. , Universal Studios, and in Chicago at the Field Museum. 

Mission Statement

It is the goal of the Athens Band Program to mold our students into successful, productive adults; teaching them that through determination, diligent effort, commitment to a team and discipline that each member can achieve any task that they pursue.  We believe that true pride is based on effort, not assumed because of affiliation, but self-bestowed after struggle and strife have produced success; that "fun" in band is not meaningless folly but interaction with peers and leaders in the process of pursuing excellence.  We want our students to apply these skills to the trials that they will encounter in the road that lies ahead; to be successful in life because of what they have done in band.
