Colorguard is the visual performing group which performs as part of the marching band each fall. Students who perform in Colorguard take the class during the school day for the fall semester. Students are also able to take colorguard in the fall and transition to a band instrument for the duration of the school year. These students take colorguard/band for the entire school year.
