Materials went home with students on Sept 19, 2022 and the sale ends Oct 3, 2022.

A couple very important facts regarding the cookie dough:

  • Cookie dough is frozen, so it must be picked up and delivered/stored in your home freezer on the day of delivery

  • The expected delivery date will be prior to Thanksgiving, with the exact date determined once orders are turned in

  • The fundraiser profits will be used to support the extra expenses of the band including extra instructors, buses, meals, equipment, etc.

Paper packets were sent home with each band and color guard member (9/19) for cookie dough. Place checks or cash in Woody in the Band Room or a check can be mailed to the band booster PO box.


  • Band Room doors will be closed and locked between 3:00-5:00pm. No students are to be in the building between those times.

  • The students need to wear their Member Shirts, Athletic Shorts and LONG BLACK SOCKS and be Seated in the Band Room/Dressed in Uniform for warm up by 6:00pm.

Please be sure your child has a flip folder for the football game Friday night. These are available at Lane Music, Amro Music, and on Amazon.

Thursday is a home game, and we will be collecting the uniforms after the game to clean. We will need helpers to collect pants and shirts when the game is over. Please sign up on the sign up genius to help. Be on the lookout for a work day request right after fall break to help put the clean uniforms away.

The Pit Crew needs new members to join and help the kiddos during halftime shows and competitions! The primary responsibility of the Pit Crew is to HAVE FUN! …and help move the front ensemble, or “pit,” onto and off of the field during football games and marching competitions. The Pit Crew also is responsible for building and making props as needed, transportation (truck and UHaul), repairing and maintaining carts and equipment (i.e. painting carts, inflating tires, replacing tires, keeping ladders in operational condition, etc.).

Having a student in the pit is not a requirement to be in the Pit Crew. The Pit Crew is open to all Houston Band parents who wish to join. So please join us! It’s a really cool vantage point to watch the show from (right down on the field) and possibly get a closer look at your son or daughter performing in the process!

If you are interested in joining the Pit Crew, please contact Jeff Borgsmiller via mobile phone 901-568-7583 or email If you’re unsure, and want to watch a show or two before joining that’s ok – you’re welcome to join at any time during the season.


We’ve got SUPER FUN volunteer opportunities galore, so no matter what you may be interested in or how much (or how little) time you have, we’ve got a spot for you, and we NEED you! There’s nothing more fun for kids than band – and their families! If you are interested in volunteering with The Houston Band, please complete this form as soon as possible as committees are forming now!
