The Grapevine High School Band and Mustang Guard are excited to offer additional performing arts enrichment opportunities to CTMS, CMS, and GMS students this semester with the introduction of the Middle School Spirit Guard program! As we look for more ways to engage the student body during these challenging times, a fresh new co-ed option is now available and easy to join. All materials, communications, and finances are expertly coordinated by Mr. Draper and the other GHS Band Directors. GCISD health and safety guidelines will be followed at all times.

Spirit Guard Program Highlights:
$35 club fee (includes a t-shirt, payable to GHS Band).
All equipment provided, no purchase necessary.
Camps are monthly after-school in an available gym / auditorium / cafeteria.
Learn elements of music, dance, theater, and of course color guard.

A great way to meet diverse friends and easily grow into the high school experience.
