“It was a great day for the band students from Bridgeland, Cypress Woods and Jersey Village high schools as they performed at the Texas UIL State Marching Band Championships,” said Mary Running, director of fine arts. “We are so proud to have three of our marching bands from Cypress-Fairbanks ISD earn the honor of representing multiple school districts from the Houston area at this competition. The students and parents have put in countless hours over the past few months preparing for this opportunity. The success of our students is the result of the great support we receive from our community, school board and administration in CFISD. We hope the students and parents will cherish the memories of competing at state and this marching season for many years to come. Cypress-Fairbanks ISD is truly a community that provides outstanding opportunities for all.”
