Congratulations once again to everyone for this past Saturday night! EVERYONE has had a role in the success of the group and needs to feel extremely proud of the accomplishment!

Rehearsal Schedule

The rehearsal schedule this week is currently MTWRF from 6-9 PM. Wednesday night is looking iffy, but we will continue to monitor the weather and make adjustments if needed.

Sub Orders

While we do not have a football game this Friday night, Mrs. McGowan is teaming up with Hot Z to provide a lunch option for the trip to MetLife on Saturday! Lori is requesting that this week's orders are CASH orders, so please place the cash in an envelope along with the order form. Thanks!

National Championships Tickets

Hurricane Relief

USBands will be collecting donations at MetLife Stadium to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy. They are collecting supplies, canned goods, clothing, and monetary donations. If you are interested in donating, please bring your items with you on Saturday morning. We will have Booster Club volunteers boxing donations to take with us underneath the buses.


Thank you to the Booster Club for the generous donation that will provide coach buses for our trip to MetLife! We will be riding in style thanks to you! We will be spending a good deal of time traveling on Saturday, so please be prepared with lunch, snacks, and entertainment!

National Champs DVD Pre-Orders >

It appears as though you may pre-order DVDs through and pick them up following our performance on Saturday! That rocks!

That's all for now, friends! Keep working hard, "climatize" this week, and be ready for an incredible experience!
