To all Parents/Guardians:
On March 13th, the Channelview High School Falcon Band (from Channelview, Texas) was involved in a tragic accident coming home from a spring break trip to Disney World. The accident happened in Alabama, leaving one person dead (the bus driver) and at least 20 others injured (some severely) including their band director. So many lives will change because of this, financially and mentally.
The KHS Tiger Band students will be collecting monetary donations starting today (March 19). Our Booster Club will match the donations that are collected by the KHS students and family and will donate directly to the Channelview Falcon Band.
Many Falcon Band families have injured students that were taken from the scene to hospitals in Alabama and Florida. Some students are in the process of being transported back to Texas at this time, but others still remain hospitalized, as well as their band director.
In this accident, the band lost instruments, students lost clothing and personal items. Donations will help with the above and also to help families who have students in out-of-state hospitals with expenses.
Donations collected by students can be given to Mr. Garner or Mr. Giebelhaus. Thank you in advance for helping another band family put their lives back together after this horrific accident.
Check out their FB page, where you can see photos and get more information on this.
Questions can be directed to Mike Detweiler, Robyn Bowers Murray, Mr. Giebelhaus or Mr. Garner.
