Hey Band!
From Mr. Drake:
Two quick reminders:  All band trip payents are due!  Please get the funds in ASAP.  All money must be turned in this week.  There is a concert for Symphonic Band and the incoming 8th graders this Thursday at 7:30 PM at CCHS.
Please remember to bring in your flags if you are scheduled for this holiday.  Also, we could use your help at the Sppech and Debate tournament on March 7.  See details below.
Thanks, Band!  Have a great week!
-Mr. Drake

Return flags to the school on Tuesday, February 18, 2014 from 3:30 P.M. – 8:00 P.M.   Please complete delivery to the school no later than 8:00 P.M.

Flag carts will be in the parking lot in front of the door to the small commons (Outside door immediately to the left of the band hall door). Students helping with carts are: Andres Bryan, Tomas Bryan, Grant Cook, Jacob Eissler, and Tobyn King. Please be there at 3:00 pm.

Please return the complete Routing Package (Plastic envelope with map and Routing List) to one of the parents or students helping with the carts before you start unloading flags. It is very critical to mark off the flags on the Routing Sheet as you pick them up and to make notes regarding any discrepancies from what is on the list. If the flags are not marked off as picked up on the routing sheet, the flags will have to be physically counted when put on the carts. Please remember to roll flags neatly so they don’t’ need to be rerolled in the parking lot. Also, please take care loading them on the carts to avoid damage to the flags (neatly and straight, not crossed).

The spreadsheet for routing issues is attached. There are only 4 issues and they involve routes CC, CPL1, CPN6 and WF. The issues are for 1 flag location moved to accommodate the customer’s request and 3 new flags added that are not on routing sheets. So far, there have been no problems reported for missed flags! AWESOME JOB!!!

 Once-in-a-lifetime Fundraiser!Please plan on helping with the State TFA Speech and Debate Tournament being held at Cy Creek on Friday, March 7. All students will be dismissed at 11:25 that day due to the arrival of 1,500 competitors, coaches and judges participating in the tournament. We will be feeding those good folks lunch and dinner. All hands on deck as we help our school successfully host this great event and make a great deal of money for the band! Students will have an opportunity to sign up at school in band class. Parents, please sign up by emailing Hollie Ashby at The band needs your help!We have a great crew of dedicated folks signed up, but we still have a few key positions open. Please note: There are 2 planning meetings. These MANDATORY meetings will make certain the event will run smoothly. Mark your calendars for Thursday 2/20 (same night as the concert) @ 7:00 PM in the small commons and 2/28. 
Thanks, band. This a great opportunity for us to support our school and show the community that the band turns up when needed!

Do you shop at Kroger? Yes? Then please help the band at NO cost to you!Please register your Kroger Plus card to help support our band as a part of their community outreach. A Kroger Plus card holder needs to go to and click under Texas to enroll. You will need to create an account if you haven't done so previously. This is a short process where you add contact information and select your store. It will then ask if you want to register a Kroger Plus card. Please enter your 12 digit card number (no spaces) and then select Cypress Creek Band Booster Club as your designated organization. The organization's number is 82723, but you can also pull it up by name. Within 7 to 10 days, a line should appear at the bottom of each Kroger receipt indicating that the band is your selected organization. The money received from Kroger quarterly will go to the band in general.
If anyone has any questions, please e-mail Jan Titone at
