• Welcome to the Hallsville Junior High "Sweepstakes" Band page!

    "The Roarin' Band from Bobcat Land!"

    The Junior High Bands consist of grades 6-8. The 7th and 8th graders make up the Bobcat Marching Band during football season, and the Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, and Concert Band during the Spring semester. Our 6th graders make up our beginner band program where the Winning Tradition of the Bobcat Band truly begins! The bands are directed by Mr. Rance Hawthorne, Mr. Jody Maynard, and Mr. Michael McGee, who is also our 6th grade coordinator. High School directors who also assist with the Junior High program are Mrs. Sherri Morgan, Mr. Wayne Smith , and Mr. Ty Hood.
