Sophomore Guardie

It was just too much for Robert to have all the fun with the Mt. Pleasant High School marching band -- now his sister's getting in on the action.
She's signed out a band flag for the summer to practice the visual moves that go along with a great band presentation. It's a nylon flag on a 5-foot aluminum pole, and the idea is to synchronize it with the other flags. It's impressive when it works right.
Katherine has been told "If you make it through the second day of Band Camp (in late August) and only say 'I can't do this' twice, and only throw up once, you'll make it."

Ah, the color guard days...tell her NOT to feel bad when she hits that horn player smack in the head on her second day of band camp...even if it is her best friend. And, for goodness sake, don't go ANYWHERE near her when she's practicing. It was the best thing I ever did in high school. I hope she loves it as much as I did.

As for the student opinion survey...well, D-U-H Mark. You actually have experience in the field, so you know what you're talking about.

It's a 6 foot pole btw!
