Weekly Update

Good Evening Band Family,

Please excuse the delay in this e-mail – I am still recovering for the Sunday parade like all of our kids!  😊 Speaking of which, our band students were judged by the unofficial Richmond Good Old Days Parade Committee and won β€œBest Music.” Our students performed well, and represented Cousino with some stellar musicianship and behavior.  Great job.  Also thank you to all of the parents who helped with everything!  It is much appreciated!

Football Game this week!

We will follow the typical itinerary for football games.  The biggest change is this will be our first game in full uniform.  Students will need to wear their band camp shirt, comfortable shorts/pants, and black socks to our rehearsal before the game (this uniform may differ for guard – please talk to Jalyn or your captain if there are any questions).  We will have time to change into our uniforms after our run throughs.  It is important to wear the band camp shirts under our uniform.  If the weather is too hot, we still have to look uniform if we take off the jackets in the stands.  I told the kids at rehearsal today that if one person is not in uniform under their marching band jacket, then we will not be taking them off. 

We also need some volunteers – please sign up below if you can donate a little bit of your time this Friday to make it a successful game for us!


Biggest Fundraiser of the Year – Night at the Races

We have our biggest fundraiser of the year coming up on November 12th.  It is a fun night of laughs, fun, food, and horse races.  This is also an adults only event.  We could use a little bit of help to pull this off.  Our booster president has made it her goal to raise $10,000 during this event.  You can help in a few ways:

  1. Purchase a ticket
  2. Sell tickets – you don’t have to be affiliated with the band in any way to attend
  3. Can’t attend?  Buy a horse (winning horses win $100)
  4. Find a sponsor or ask your boss at work to sponsor – We need these ASAP!
  5. Share the link on your social media pages and encourage people to attend

The link below has all of the information, as well as the payment info. 


Spirit Ware

Spirit ware is live!  If you are interested in purchasing anything, please make sure you order at the link below.  They will even deliver to the school which gives you a break on shipping costs.



Our homecoming game is fast approaching (September 30) and we do things a little differently that day.  We invite all alumni to join us on the field for pregame and in the stands, and we also have a tailgate party set up in the barn prior to our rehearsal.  This is such a fun event that I love every year, and the alumni parents do a great job of putting it together.  If you are interested in partaking in the tailgate, we have a form below for food orders.  This is for ANYONE – kids, family, friends, whoever!  If you are interested, please purchase your food tickets below


Thank you all so much for a great weekend.  Looking forward to our game in full uniform this Friday!!!
