Weekly Director’s Updates

Cougar Band & Guard

this week

General Announcements

**New-District Band Showcase- Friday, October 30
Mark October 30th on your calendar as a required Performance.  High School and Middle School Bands all across our District will join up on the field to play one big song together and to watch AMCHS and CSHS perform our 2020 Marching Shows for each other.
In order to maintain appropriate Social Distancing in the Audience, we will be performing a Show at 7 for Middle School Families and again near 8 for High School Families.  Be watching for an update email about these details.  We will also allow costumes for this performance, since we are so close to the 31st.   Whatever you wear needs to still be dress code appropriate, if you are not sure whether it will work or not, just ask.

Football Programs: We still need some volunteers to sign up to help sell programs right before our Final Home game on December 4th.  Here is the direct link to sign up with the Cougar Club.  Sign up Link.

Cold Weather Uniforms for Games later in the Season
Brrrr, it’s cold out here….must be some Cougars in the atmosphere……(anybody?).
In preparation for games in late October, November, December as the temperature gets too cold for our normal uniform for halftime, we will be wearing a cold weather uniform to still look as professional as possible.  Here is what that will look like if you want time to get it together: On top, a black or purple Jacket/Hoodie (See spirit shop), Letter Jackets are also acceptable if you need to wear a coat.  Cougar Band Purple T-Shirt underneath, thermals are appropriate in most cases.  Long Black Athletic Pants (See Spirit Shop email), Black shoes, Black Socks, just like before.  If you have questions, please plan ahead and let us know how we can help.

Current Band Holiday Concert Plans

According to the current COVID regulations put on the performing arts, as of right now, we can not perform a concert indoors with an audience.  While we do certainly have some live streaming options, it is always much more preferred to play live for an audience whenever possible.  We have reserved Thursday, December 10th on the Calendar to put on an outdoor concert on the covered Patio between the Fine Arts hallway and the Art classrooms.  Audience members will be able to bring chairs and blankets and spread out on the grass lawn.  If the weather doesn’t work for us (it is december in Texas), then we will likely move back indoors and live stream the performances.
