March-a-thon Venue Needed

Hello Kempner Band Family!

We are in dire need of a venue for our annual March-A-Thon on August 22nd. Please let me know if your church, place of work or organization would allow a lock-in for our kids. Thank you in advance for your help and continued dedication!


KHS Band: Updates!

Greetings, Kempner Band Family!


I hope your summer has been relaxing and refreshing! I thought I’d share with you a few updates and events that are going on in our program.


Firstly, the online band fee payment system is fully functional! Please visit the website ( to pay your fee via PayPal. The fee for every student is $200. If you’ve already paid the $100 intent fee, you only owe $100 for the band fee. Payment plans are available.


While you are on the website, please take the time to visit the calendar page to stay updated on our events and camps that are coming up. This is an essential tool that every student, parent, and director must be familiar with. Please take a few minutes every once in a while to check the website and calendar for updates!


Next, I’d like to invite all parents and students to the Drum Corps International (DCI) Houston Show on July 18th. DCI is composed of many professional marching programs across the nation. The members of these programs are young adults from ages 15 to 21. They tour the country; playing and marching for drum corps fans in over 40 cities. It’s a very cool experience and I recommend that all of you attend to see our activity performed on the highest level!


We will meet at KHS on July 18th at 4:45 pm to carpool to the Berry Center in Cypress. We desperately need parent volunteers to help carpool; please let us know if you can! We will receive a group discount, making the tickets $32.50 each. Please RSVP by Monday, July 14th so that we know how many tickets to purchase for this event.


Lastly, please feel free to contact me with any concerns or questions you may have. Most of the information is available on our website (, but if I’ve missed anything please let me know. Have a great day!

Thank You,
KHS Band Staff
