any interested student with opportunities for musical knowledge, musical
fellowship and fun through participation in band. Band students
participate in numerous performances, contests and trips. Preparation is
by individual and group rehearsals all designed to help students attain
General Goals and Objectives. Band begins in the sixth grade and
continues through high school. If a student has not participated in the
sixth grade but is interested in joining the band, check with the middle
school director. Beginning band participation at the high school level
is generally not available. Each high school band program also offers
Color Guard. Color Guard is a performing ensemble that compliments the
marching band production. During the 2nd Semester the Guard enters the
Winter Guard season upon learning a choreographed production performed
at various venues through that semester.
