We all just need to go out and support them. Bottom line. Forget the past. We have a new beginning in athletics and band. Looking forward to many great things from both organizations.
Let it be

Your statement refers to 2011 marching and presumably 2012 concert where the band received a 2 on stage and in sr. Nice try to talk your way out of it. Read your post and see what it sounds like. No mention of 2011
I did not mention the year because I said that the Sweepstakes happened Mr. Soliz's last year which was 2011. I assumed that was known. Please understand I'm not trying to win something over you here. Good luck to the Longhorn Band!

So, the fun continues on Topix over the band in Hebbronville. Do you folks realize how many band directors you have had in ten years. Now, it can't be all the directors.
Mr. Soliz did a good job giving the community mariachi.......his specialty, so good for him.
However, the program suffered due to the focus so heavy on Mariachi. The Concert band played very simple Music, Jr. High Level...... He did it in in FAl and that was a reason for him to leave there.
It's taken Paul all this time to make Fal a strong program, it will take much longer if ever in Hebbronville.
Now the funny part is the background checks......EVERY school district especially this one does not even interview until checks are done.
Do you believe everything you google.
I know Mr. Perkins and met Mr. Astorga. You guys missed out, yes Perkins has moved around in 25 years of teaching. The fact is you never got to know them and now they are moving on both to bigger and better situations.
I wish Paul all the best in the world and if any local person can turn it around he will. He is not Joe Soliz, don't expect that kind of band program and you might keep him!
Outlanders..........Out!
Longhorn Band Under Joe Soliz: Year 1
1st Division in Marching,,,Area Qualifier
1st Division in Concert and 2 in Sightreading
1st Division in Marching---Year 2
1st Division in Concert and Sightreading--Sweepstakes
This was all we were allowed to do, because we could not go to any festivals. The Mariachi did great but they were not more important that the Longhorn Band, I know because I was in both. Think before you speak. Soliz left because he was terminated by the school board not because he wanted to quit...Get your informaiton straight and focus on making our band better.
Nice

No. Super perry was to greedy. He wanted roel all along to be the boss. we all saw how he sucked up to him. What a life He's run off what , about 10 directors ? Funny how hes the one who stays.it's sad cause I know the students will " pay the price." I wish the band the best. Remember. It will take a few years for roel to get his true ratings. Riding the coattails of an awesome director. All the best hebbronville longhorn band. Stick with it. If anybody has a rough road ahead it's Paul saenz. Please fix our program quick. I don't want to wait a few years!!

Haha yeah right because our new directors are way more helpful!! Hebbron Saenz will not change ya'll, You all will always suck! Always!! Were a state qualifying band because we worked our asses off, not cause of Saenz I hate how people assume the director takes u to state and stuff that's bull! We get the marching charts, mark our spots and run it through" All they do is tell us to take a break. So hebbron will never be better than us! Ever!

Hebbronville students and fans , please pay no attention to this idiot. It's the same person posting on here that's posting on the Falfurrious topix.
So who teaches you the music? The balance? The timing?
And if "Hebbron Saenz" didn't get you to state, then why are you giving your current directors so much credit when "all they do is tell" you to take a break?
Lol. Hebbronville Nation, that is one bitter ADULT posting there. Too bad they're supposed to be professional.
Oh yes. I know who you are. Last name sounds familiar also....

I would just like to step in and say that I do not agree with these awful posts about Mr Paul Saenz. Whoever is making them is NOT speaking on behalf of our Mighty Jersey Band. Paul was the one who led our kids to state. He was our Head Band Director and under his guidance and direction we made it to the Alamodome. Its also not his first trip to state as he also led Ben Bolt to state as well. Gee z. Give credit where credit is due. He is a very humble man who loves what he does. I enjoyed my time volunteering with the program as I truly saw the pride he takes in his work. I feel stupid, but I would like to apologize to the Hebbronville Longhorn Band and it's supporters that you and your children, your community, is being pulled into this dumb topic. You have a wonderful director who ,honestly, I wish was still here in Fal, But times change and so do teachers. I am aware that this is not being made by a student but by a certain disgruntled "teacher" who is trying very hard to elevate his status in this community. Good luck to the Longhorns and we look forward to a successful year as I'm sure you do as well!!

Just like the coaches are only there to tell the kids when to get water. The teachers are only there to tell you when to go to your next class. The principal is just there to tell you when to go home.
With your logic, schools shouldn't waste money on hiring anybody since the students can do it by themselves. I think you just figured out how to save the district a butt load of money. Oh wait, might as well get rid of the superintendent and school board since they don't do much either.

Make sure that the kids get to summer band practices and everything else will fall in place. Get the kids that quit to rejoin the program,,here is where the parents come in. Gomez, left last year and the team had a very difficult season, but this year,,,they are out there sweating and working hard,,,give the band director the same priviledge,,why is it that for band,,,you have a bad year and kids quit in droves,,,,football has a bad year and the kids are still in it,,,parents have alot to do with it,,,Parents,,unite and have your kids rejoin our band program..Be involved,,,our administration and school board leave alot to be desired,,,is it true that their was a major problem at the school board meeting not too long ago,,,I have heard nothing but positive things about Paul Saenz and Mr. Alvarez,,,Give them a chance,,,Good luck,,,Longhorn Nation,,,Once a Longhorn ALways a Longhorn,,,,
