7/8 Color Guard

This year we will be offering a 7/8 Color Guard! If you know of a 7/8 student who is interested, please invite them! They don’t have to be a current member of any of our groups, so bring a friend!

All students (boys and girls) interested will meet from 3:30pm to 4:30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We’ll gather in the band room and move to a practice location.
