Veterans Day is the day to recognize the men and women who stepped forward to serve our country and a cause greater than themselves. Like an arrow leaving the bow, their lives move forward on a path of service for their country and community. It’s a path that keeps going even after the wearing of one type of uniform ends and another begins. 

Here at Hays, we are proud of the many men and women on faculty who have served! They are some of the greatest leaders on campus and continue to serve as amazing role models for all students here at Hays! 

To our alumni, family and friends of the Hays Rebel Band who have served or who are currently serving...thank you! Thank you for your unselfish nature and your desire to make our country one of the greatest on earth! It is because of your sacrifice that we are able to enjoy what we do each and every day.

Again, this meal is optional and only those students who are not on the competition meal plan will need to bring $10 should they choose to purchase this meal. 
If you have any questions, please contact Lesley Allen:

Dinner Etiquette - 

Students - please remember that our use of the cafeteria on Friday afternoons falls outside of the normal school hours. Therefore it is a courtesy and a privilege to have the additional space to eat and socialize. 

When we release from the cafeteria to pick-up uniforms, PLEASE do not leave early. Wait until a Director releases your specific section or table. If everyone gets up and leaves at the same time, this causes a massive congestion in the uniform room and hallway. Please be patient! 

Thank you in advance for your cooperation!

Message from the Booster President - 

Band Family!
Thank you to all who came out to support our 3rd Annual Rebels & Rides Car Show.  Continuing the great tradition, we had fantastic community participation through car entries & food truck / vendor sales.

A HUGE thank you to Lena Llabres, Jenn McDonald and the car show committee for working so hard to get this event off the ground. I was super impressed with all of the band students who came out to volunteer on such a cold Saturday...they did an awesome job! 

Next up for fundraising? Right now we have tamale sales & Fall spirit wear currently available in the Booster Store on our website. Our holiday wreath sale is also underway so feel free to post and share the link with family & friends! 

Thanks everyone!
