Pool Party Social this Friday night

Our annual band pool party social will be this Friday, August 1st at the Sugar Mill Community Association Lake Pool, located on Lake Estates Street in Sugar Land, Texas, on August 1, 2014.  The party will begin at 8 p.m., and will end promptly at 9:45 p.m.  Lifeguards will be on duty during the party, and adult chaperones will also be in attendance.  Parents are welcome to attend and observe, space permitting (there is a maximum person rule in effect at the pool & priority will be given for students).

The permission form must be signed by the parent/guardian and returned to Mr. Smith (Band Director) or to an officer of the Kempner Marching Cougars Booster Club with your $5 fee, no later than Thursday July 31.  No student will be permitted to participate in this activity unless a parent or guardian has completed this form.

Penny Wars Have Begun!

How it works:

There are 4 jugs in the band hall starting today until the last week of band camp.  The Jugs are marked “Freshman”, “Sophomores”  “Juniors”, “Seniors”.

Students put their pennies in their class container.  One point is received for every penny in the container.

Here’s the fun part…students may put other coins into the containers of OTHER classes. Each silver coin or bill REDUCES the number of points from that container by the amount of the coin. (e.g. a nickel reduces the points by five, a dime by ten, etc…) This is where strategy counts. Have fun with it!

There will be a prize for the winning class!  Seniors have won the last TWO years…will they continue their reign?!?

Band Camp Site Change


We’ve had a change in plans regarding next week’s band camp. Unfortunately, Sugar Land Middle School will not be able to accommodate us after all. Thus, we will have band camp at Kempner High School.

We will meet at Kempner High School in the band hall on Monday morning at 8 am. Please plan to have your student there with a lunch, a water bottle, warm weather clothing (with athletic shoes), their instrument, and their music binder.

I have edited the information on the calendar to reflect this change. On behalf of the band staff, we apologize for the inconvenience and we hope to make this transition quickly and smoothly.

Percussion: Please stand by for more information regarding your role on Monday. We will most likely need your help moving the equipment from SLMS to KHS.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me directly. However, I am not in the office today so I will not be able to receive calls. My email is benjamin.muths@fortbend.k12.tx.us

Thank you for your patience and support as we deal with this issue. Inconvenience aside, I am confident that our band camp will be a great musical and social experience!
