Winter Season!

Welcome to our Winter Competitive Season! We are very pleased to have you as a member of our program. Our two competitive programs are Winter Guard and Winter Percussion. In Winter Guard, students will learn technique on flags, sabers, and rifles, in addition to visual choreography, to portray a theme that is accompanied by a soundtrack. This year's theme will be revealed at the first practice. In Winter Percussion, students will be assigned a percussion instrument that suits their interests, abilities, and/or the needs of the program. Music and visuals are combined to portray a theme that will be revealed at the end of the first practice. Both groups compete on Saturdays against other high schools in the region in a competitive circuit called MAC (Musical Arts Conference). MAC event details can be found on musicalartsconference.

I believe you will find the program to be both challenging and rewarding. We will work together throughout the season to make Winter Guard and Winter Percussion a wonderful and successful experience for everyone!

The student handbook is embedded into this website and contains a great deal of information. This is a great resource for all students, not just those participating for the first time. In addition to the handbook, information and program updates will be available on Parent Square and Remind. Please check these resources frequently to ensure you have the most up-to-date information.

If you would like to participate in Winter Guard or Winter Percussion, you will need to submit an electronic “Permission & Medical Information” form below or to the right to confirm your commitment to the program and acknowledge receipt of the student handbook. This form must be completed no later than Dec 10 for Guard and Dec 15 for Percussion. Please check the season calendar below or to the right to ensure you have no significant conflicts.

I'm looking forward to a successful winter season!

Sincerely,

Manny Arboleda
