As most of you know, Mr. Alvarado is retiring this year after 31 years in teaching.  To honor him and his contribution to the band profession, we are hosting a:

Retirement Reception for Phil Alvarado
Friday, May 5, 2017
5:00-7:00 pm           
Lake Highlands High School Band Hall

We are also collecting donations for a gift from parents and families to be given to Mr. Alvarado at the reception.  If you would like to donate (and have your name included on the card), please contact Melanie Gilmore at 214-893-5795 or  Although not required, if you would prefer to bring an individual card or gift, that is fine as well.

Also, if you have any special memories or pictures that you would like to share, please email them to Cary Pillers at  Deadline for submission is Tuesday, May 2, so we can include them in a memory book that will be presented to him.

Please join us as the Wildcat Band Family celebrates a new beginning for Mr. Alvarado!
