Our marching show music has changed!  Instead of our usual "Music Pass Off" we will be learning our new music!

From Mr. Drake:
We are excited to announce The Fighting Cougar Band's 2013 marching show titled "Out Of This World"
Music arranged by William Pitts with Percussion by Doug Herrington and Nathan Valdez.
Featuring music from and inspired by:
Mvt. 1 - Star Trek Symphonic Suite - Michael Giacchino
Mvt. 2 - "Jupiter" from The Planets - Gustav Holst
Mvt. 3 - Theme Song from The Jetsons - Hoyt Curtin

Please log on to to listen to audio examples from the show!  We all will have a great time this marching season learning this fantastic music!

Go to the website and be certain you have all of your band forms filled out this summer.  Be sure to book your physical and have your physical forms signed by your physician.  You cannot march without a current physical exam!
Kroger Cards:
The Kroger Gift Card Program will end on July 31, 2013.  Parents may continue adding money to their cards until that date so students can earn money for their Kroger account.  Any remaining balance on the gift cards as of August 1, 2013 may still be used toward Kroger purchases without any problems.  A new program using the Kroger Plus cards is going into effect onSeptember 1, 2013.  Money earned will go toward the band in general.  We do not receive a set percentage like the old program, but rather we will receive an amount in relation to what we spend compared to other participating organizations.  

Mandatory Parent Meeting:
There will be a mandatory parent meeting on Tuesday, August 6th at 7:00 p.m. in the Band Hall.  This is where parents can get information about what to expect on Fee Day on Saturday, August 10th and for the upcoming marching season.
