Hey band!
Cougar Band Members and Parents,
This Wednesday, February 18th KPRC Channel 2 will be shining a spotlight on our campus during the morning news.  This is a wonderful opportunity to get some huge positive press for our campus and our support and spirit organizations, including the band program.  All band students are asked to participate in the rally as all of our major organizations will be in attendance.  The report time is quite early.  I promise you the school administration and the band staff would not ask the band to participate unless they felt this vital to our school and our school’s public image.  This is a great chance to get some great publicity.  I realize Wednesday is Ash Wednesday and know some of you will be attending services in the early morning hours.  If this is a necessity for you and your family please notify me and we certainly understand your religious obligations.  At the same time, if you’re able to attend evening services, that would be helpful to us trying to wrangle up as many students as possible to make this spirit rally a success.
Date: Wednesday, February 18th
Report time: 4:30 AM!  Yep… 4:30.  Four Thirty.
Spirit Rally between 5 and 7.  There will be spots of down time and we will play intermittently when KPRC cuts to images of our campus. 
Dress: Jeans and Show Shirt
This is almost EXACTLY like the Friday Football Frenzy our campus has done in the past – except there is no football game.
Our campus is really counting on our band to make this event a success – we are the largest student organization by far and have such a great opportunity to have a positive impact.
Doughnuts and Kolaches will be provided!
See you there! 
Go Cougars!
