Welcome to the 2019-2020 Cougar Band!
As the New Music Director, I would like to personally welcome you to the Cougar band program and cannot wait to meet you, get to know you, and share the wonderful gift of music with you. Here at Fort McCoy, the staff works together in an environment of mutual respect and understanding toward the common goal of preparing students for a lifetime of learning, productive work, and responsible citizenship by serving the learning needs of the community in both traditional and innovative ways. As part of the Cougar music program and Fort McCoy, I firmly believe that with the right mindset we can achieve greatness in all our endeavors!
The purpose of the Fort McCoy music program is to allow students to explore their talent in a safe and positive atmosphere while being challenged to achieve excellence at the highest levels. Being involved in the Fort McCoy music program means that you are accepting the tradition of excellence that exists at Fort McCoy and that you are committed to continuing the same. Students involved in the band program will have every opportunity to explore their musical talents and gifts and as you leave Fort McCoy, you should feel that you received everything you needed to accomplish your goals, and that you are prepared for any future endeavor you might encounter, musical or not. I firmly believe that the success of this program is not measured by the achievements of the director, but by the achievements of the students during and after middle school.
Again, I would like to say welcome to Fort McCoy, and the Fort McCoy Cougar Band. I hope you have a great experience and GO COUGARS!
