2013-2014 BANDS ANNOUNCED
Our program is growing; next year there will be FOUR bands! One of the many benefits is this allows the directors to have smaller concert groups and give a student the level of instruction they need. Directors will assess students at the end of the first semester and move students to other bands as needed (hint: practice!).
Answers for incoming parents
If you have questions about the program, schedule, fees... anything that freshmen parents worry about, please email freshman@PaschalPanthers.org and it will be answered by our freshmen liaisons, Jennifer Kirk and Cindy Barry. They look forward to hearing from you.

Turn off the TV. Go out. Move. Get used to the heat. And...duh...drink that water!!
Congrats to our state competitors!
Congratulations to our students who performed at the Texas State Solo & Ensemble Contest and brought home 14 medals!! Our students earned more medals and higher ratings that an trip in recent memory!! FYI..... A 1st Division at the Region contest (in Crowley in February) is considered a 3rd Division at state, so students have to perform at an even higher level in Austin to earn a top rating. Way to go, Paschal Band!!! It is also exciting to see that we had students in all four grades earn 1st Division ratings on Saturday. This shows the depth of talent that is being created in our program and that students are capable of great things when they set their mind to it.
THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
We love Mexican Inn for their very generous donation to the band. They not only supported us with a restaurant night but also with a wonderful donation!
We encourage you to support Mexican Inn at 1625 Eighth Ave. They've been a Fort Worh favorite since 1936. They're open every day...and they'll cater your next event. When you go, tell them "Thank you for supporting Paschal Band."
