if only their were more people in the band with Sunny's attitude and pride for the band and the director i guarantee you that the band would learn stuff faster and reach their full potential.

Have any of the parents spoken to Mr. Saenz about their concerns or frustrations? Honestly, does the man know how the students and parents are feeling? Maybe these concerns should be voiced and brought directly to his attention. I have no ill feelings, just a suggestion. Hopefully, this issue can get resolved collaboratively.
Sending positive vibes and luck your way.

the old Mr. Saenz did not know what he was doing. the only reasons the band did good under him was that there was better talent then and the assistant directors were really good. To be honest with you the old Mr. Saenz is the reason that our band was always so small and never made it to state.
do u know what your talking about do u even know the old mr saenz yes he wasnt the best but at least they got ones and at least they pleased the fans in the stands??

yes i do know the old Mr. Saenz he was my director for 7 years. And i can tell you that one thing i learned is without talented students and good assistants Mr. saenz was nothing as a head director.

As most of you know on this site I'm Mr.Roel Saenz's daughter, but not only am I his daughter, I was his student as well.I was a section leader my sophomore year and drum line captain my junior year, and trust me band kids ARE NOT lazy! The kids in band have always been the top students academically, and are some of the hardest workers on campus. My dad knew the kind of kids he had in his band, and that is why he always pushed us; it wasn't to be mean or to be cruel, it was to achieve our goal, and our goal was to get that one. Since he's been a director here that goal was met, but when it wasn't he never once blamed the kids; NOT ONCE. He was man enough to admit there were things he could have done to make it better, I don't know very many people that can admit when they are wrong, that is something I have always looked up to. He was an amazing head band director, and I really don't care what anybody else thinks. I know he always worked his hardest and cared about every student on that field. Ex students that have defended him, Thank you, but to those of you that feel the need to trash him on a website it's obvious you don't have a life and feel the need to give your 2(NEGATIVE)cents in when they're not needed. This forum states "Fal high new band director" My dad isn't the new band director, so why is what he's done in the past being brought up? Can you ADULTS not read or you just have nothing better to do? One of my best friends, Jacqueline Ramos, had to come onto this site as well and defend her family because immature ADULTS brought her family into a forum that had nothing to do with them. This forum has nothing to do with my dad or mom, so here I am...defending them. My parents have always been there to support me, and I feel they don't deserve this from anyone in this community, especially a community they care about because the were both born and raised here. As for the new band director, he is educated and completely qualified for the job and I couldn't be happier with a Falfurrias Graduate as our new head band director. He knows what he's doing and needs to be given a chance, I know he won't let his hometown down. My dad had wanted Mr. Paul Saenz to be a director here for many years and really pushed for him. I'm more than sure people expected my dad to be upset about all of this but, Mr. Saenz has been a great friend to my dad for many years. You ADULTS don't need to try to make confrontation between two grown men, because that's what seems to be the issue. There's no need to compare who is better or anything of that nature, just be happy we've had a great director that worked hard and have a new director that WILL work hard to meet or exceed expectations. I've never seen my dad so happy and this is really what he needed, a break. Being head band director put a lot of stress on him, and his health was suffering because of it, but my dad's heart will never give out on this band, and I know he is professional enough to do everything he can to help Mr. Paul Saenz. I know I am no longer in band anymore, but that is a decision I made to concentrate more on school and getting into college, because I have a lot more to accomplish once I'm out of this little town. My dad, Mr. Saenz, and Mr. Soliz all understood my decision and knew I didn't want to hurt the band by missing out on practices and not giving my 100%. As a student of FHS, I must admit I do spread myself too thin, but I try to be successful in everything I do, and I thank my parents for that. They are at every one of my football games to see me cheer, every basketball game whether I play or not, and every competition whether I win or not. Maybe some of you ADULTS that criticize on this website should support your kids like my parents do for me and did for my brother. If you don't have kids then find something productive to do with your time, criticizing is not productive...it's IMMATURE!

I felt what I have said needed to be said, and I know not everyone is going to agree, but I tried. I love my Dad to death and hate to see people trash an amazing man for doing his BEST at what he does BEST. People need to stop tearing each other apart and start supporting the good in this community, and the band has been a GREAT thing for many, many years. If you have to express your opinion, do so, but put your name to it; be a man or woman about it...I did.

thank you Jordyn for giving both sides... i know because i was there during summer band remember, that Paul Saenz is a very educated man. the thing these people dont understand is that your dad and Paul have different ways of teaching, neither one is better than the other because obviously both of them have gotten their bands to get "ONES" and i know from experience your dad made some mistakes, but i will admit that i also have, and im pretty sure mr paul saenz has 2... no ones perfect and it seems no one in this community understands that.

oh for those of you that want to know why i went to summer band is because I LOVE THOSE KIDS!!! and i wanted to help them come back from the 3 that we got last year on stage. i felt that it was partially my fault as a leader that i didnt courage individuals to take their instruments home. So thats why i went, NOT to see if my friends were still my friends... and i also went to Mariachi practice to teach because Mr soliz could not do it all by himself, he needed help and i told him during school that i would help him. and im a man of my words!

There is always going to be a hater. "putting in my 2 cents," is obviously an idiot. If you want to make fun of someone for not knowing how to spell, then I would check on your own sentence structure. "This goes to student," is not a correct sentence. Check yrsellf ann learnnss hows to spills...lol...I think it's time for "2 cents" to take responsibilty for his own shortcomings...

When I first read all the negative comments on this website about the band director, I was extremely appauled by all the comments being made. After all he's done, how could you people have such nerve to talk so much trash about him? Honestly, you people complain about, not getting things done, about how the band works, and not getting water breaks? PLease people, half of what you right is such a cop-out. The band is getting sooooo much done, so don't judge on what you saw in hebbron. we've only marched one game do to weather, secondly, anyone that needs water can get water whenever they want, all you have to do is ASK!!!
So I'm saying this, if you are a band student on this website talking trash, I'm pretty sure you DON'T have your music memorized, so don't complain about flaws, when you contribute to those flaws, and parents typing negative things about my band, don't even, because if you're going by what your children are telling you, I can guarantee you, they're the ones who are more than likely doing a half-ass job.
So with that being said, everyone typing negative things, backoff, because until you say it to that man's face or the other band directors, your word means nothing. I want you all to think about this...
if someone were to talk trash about YOU on the internet, I'm sure you wouldn't like it. So just quit the crap already.
I'm Christin Ogdee. I am a Band Captain and very proud of the band, anyone else that disagrees, can seriosuly go to hell, because your word is worhtless! it's coming from worthless spineless people who don't have the back bone to say it to Mr. Paul Saenz's face or Soliz or the other Mr. Saenz.
I'm out.
