The Carl Junction High School Band-Color guard is a performance-based opportunity for non-instrument playing students who want to learn and perform Color guard in marching band. Auditions to make the color guard will occur in fourth quarter.  Besides being enrolled in Band-Color guard for the fall semester, guard camp occurs during the summer. Students should attend to secure a drill number for competitive marching. Students not in attendance of summer camps will withdraw from the class. Please see the band calendar for dates. Marching band practices at 7:00 am daily and performs for home football games and in area marching festivals. The marching band will perform exciting contemporary shows written by the most outstanding arrangers and drill writers available. Starting in November, the band-color guard will prepare for the Christmas Parade and any other responsibilities needed by the band. (Half-credit, one semester fine arts elective for grades 9-12.) Prerequisite: Students not currently enrolled in Band need director’s permission before enrolling for the next year. This course may be repeated for credit. There will be fees for this course, however, we can work around financial hardship—see the band director for additional information.
