Hello Four Points Middle School Band Families!
It is with great pleasure that I write to you to let you know of some accolades that the 2017-2018 Four Points Bands achieved!
Last year’s Wind Ensemble recorded and submitted their music from UIL in April for review from a National Contest called the National Wind Band Honors Project: Mark of Excellence. Bands from all over Texas and the Nation submit their best work from the year, and select elite professional band adjudicators review, critique and select the top performers from each category. The project received 279 entries from 38 states this past year. The Four Points Middle School Wind Ensemble was among the top bands selected for this awesome honor!
In addition to the Mark of Excellence award achieved last year, the Four Points Middle School Symphonic Band earned the distinction of Citation of Excellence for their performances in their category within this same contest. The work that these kids did last year and continue to do prepare them for their musical future, but also their academic future. Their tireless efforts since 6th grade have earned them national distinction at the highest levels.
Two Plaques specifying these awards will be displayed at the front of the school in the glass trophy cases as you enter Four Points MS.

Thank you, the students and families, for being a part of this wonderful journey. It most certainly takes a village and lots of work to make a program worthy of such accolades.
