Niwot High School

about us

Program Overview

Niwot High School is a school rich in history and tradition. The Niwot High School Cougar Marching Band prides itself in upholding this richness.

We perform a traditional style pre-game show at each home football game (played at Longmont High School’s Everly Montgomery Field) featuring the playing of the Star-Spangled Banner and the Niwot High fight song “Down the Field” as well as a traditionally-based marching halftime show. Both of these field performances feature the visual artistry of the Color Guard. Recently, “The Pride of Niwot” have featured the Niwot High Dance Team during halftime shows.

Students enjoy preserving these stately traditions as well as some other playful traditions like choreographed warm-ups to “Hello, My Name is Joe,” and “Medusa,” a game that tests students’ abilities to maintain attention.

Niwot High has two performing Jazz Ensembles that rehearse during school and the district’s only symphonic orchestra featuring full wind and string sections.

Along with playing saxophone, Wade enjoys cycling, skiing, cooking and spending time with his young family. Wade loves the culture, community and energy teaching at Niwot brings.
