All Gonzales junior high band students competed at the Yoakum ISD Band Invitational last Saturday May 6th. There were 14 schools and over 500 students in attendance that day. Our apaches came home with 97 first division medals and 8 second division ribbons. We had the most outstanding solo musician recipients numbers of all the schools that brought students. The students that received the most outstanding soloist awards are Alejandro Campos (6th), Daicy Angel (6th), Ezra Romero (8th), Hayley Gonzalez (6th), Jude Hataway (8th), Julius Vega (7th), Pedro Cardenas (7th), and Shiloh Wright (8th). We even received the full band soloist award and this award was given to Shiloh Wright and Olivia Shi in the piece "Arabian Dances". All three bands went home with trophies for their performances on stage. The 6th and 8th grade bands brought home a "superior" rating (1) on stage and the 7th grade band brought home a trophy with an "excellent" rating (2) on stage. Congratulations to all performers! The future is very bright for our Apache musicians.
You will need to bring a Photo ID in order for your student to be checked out of school during the school day before dismissal at 3:40PM.
