Please note that Winter Drumline rehearses outside of the normal school day and will have a separate donation of approximately $700 that covers instructional staff, an original costume, and a new drumline floor and props for the show. Students must be caught up with their donations from the fall season to participate.

Color Guard will begin preparing for the Disneyland Parade, the Holiday Concert, and our 2019 Winter Guard show! We are looking to build on the success from last season and are excited about the potential for our Winter Guard. Please stay tuned for the new rehearsal schedule.
