Texas Color Guard Circuit Competition Hosting

We are hosting a Texas Color Guard Circuit competition on Saturday, March 12th. This is a huge opportunity for our band program to raise money. We will be asking for parent and student volunteers, so please consider signing up for a shift below. We are also asking for donations for our hospitality room.

Please note that the volunteer shifts have been changed now that we have the performance schedule. Please check the times if you have already signed up to volunteer.
