Preliminary 2016 Marching Band Schedule

Dear Marching Band families,

It’s 2016!  That means the the 2016 Cougar Band season is only 6 short months away!  In an effort to help with your summer planning, I am sharing a rough schedule for the 2016 season.  This year will be a little different than the past few years due to school starting later and fall break being altered.

I am looking forward to the 2016 season!  I have challenged each veteran member to recruit a band member to march that has never marched before.  We all know how great marching band is so let’s get more of our bandmates involved…especially future 9th graders!  I have already picked show music too! 🙂

Remember!  Attendance is mandatory at all rehearsals and contests.  Any season conflicts must be cleared with me BEFORE the season starts.  Marching band is a big puzzle and we need all the members to make it complete…performances AND rehearsals.  Learning starts at the FIRST rehearsal!

Watch for your 2016 Cougar Band Newsletter to hit your mailbox the first week of March!

Go Cougar Band 2016!!
