From the directors

As many of you know by now, Class of 2019 Falcon Band member Samuel McBurnett passed away recently. Sam was an All-State tenor sax player, and older brother to Jack McBurnett (class of 2022). To pay tribute to Sam, we are encouraging the band students to wear orange, which was his favorite color, for Wednesday’s after school rehearsal. Please wear any orange you may have, and if you have an extra article of orange, please bring one for someone who may not have orange in their wardrobe.

Our Next Game is Friday 9/9 at Veteran's Memorial

All CCISD home games (or those 'visiting' other CCISD schools) will have tickets sold online through for CLHS. You can order virtual tickets in advance if you'll be attending a game, and you'll need a clear bag for the CCISD stadiums.

Our game this week is our first home game! It is at Veteran's Memorial stadium, which is next to Clear Creek High School.

CCISD Veterans Memorial Stadium
2305 East Main Street
League City, TX 77573

If you are volunteering to ride a bus, you will not need a ticket as a parent chaperone. If you are arriving at the game on your own, you can order your tickets through GoFan at this link:

Still Need to Order Game Meals?

Some of you ordered contest meals (Saturdays in October) but not game meals (Friday evenings before the football game). If you would like to order game meals, then please do so at this link. The deadline is Tuesday September 6th.

Handy with a video camera? The band needs your help!

Mr. Pearce is looking for a parent or other volunteer to video tape our band performances! If you are handy with a video camera and wouldn't mind helping, please contact Mr. Pearce directly:

Mattress Fundraiser on Saturday, September 17!

Our mattress fundraiser is coming up fast on September 17. The company will turn part of Clear Lake High School into a full mattress showroom, and we get a profit of all of the mattresses, massage chairs, pillows, and other items sold that day. If you are in the market for a new mattress or know someone who is, encourage them to visit the school on Saturday! See the full details in the flyers below.

Our main responsibility for this fundraiser is to advertise it to the community. If you would like to help us advertise by placing a yard sign in your front yard or would like a poster to hang at your business, church, or any other group gathering area, please have your child pick one up from the band office following school or rehearsal on Monday

All hands on deck for our marching contest on October 1!

We are hosting a marching competition on October 1!

All hands are going to be needed to pull off this event, so begin thinking about what areas you can help in, please!

We are hoping to raise $8,000 plus on this event.

We are going to need a setup crew starting at 7 AM, bus and truck parking crew, ticket/box office crew, ushers, Airgram sellers, Band Check-in, Warm-up monitors, ushers/ concourse monitors, Adjudicator hospitality and press box monitor, and finally clean up crew. Those jobs will be in addition to our regular volunteers needed for other contests.

I also need someone to be in charge of the event and band volunteers.

Thank you!

Sam Draper

Tickets are already on sale for the Homecoming football game on Friday, October 7th

This year is Clear Lake High School's 50th anniversary!

There are already big plans in the works for Homecoming weekend, including at the football game. If you are planning to attend the Homecoming football game at Challenger Columbia Stadium that night and you are NOT volunteering to help move band equipment or chaperone on the bus, you may need to order tickets sooner rather than later as there is a risk they may be sold out closer to the date. (Volunteers who ride the bus and move equipment are included with the band's entry that night.)

You can get more information about Homecoming tickets and special Homecoming events on the Anniversary website:
