My students need color guard equipment for practice, parades, and halftime shows for basketball and football season. The guard rifles are for spinning, tossing, and dance routines as part of band performances.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
There are around 150 students in the band program. They range from beginning players with no music experience to advanced players who audition into top bands as 9th graders in high school.
The band students pursue music with passion and a thirst to improve.
They come from diverse backgrounds, and music serves as the means to bring them together. Band students learn 21st Century skills, including leadership, collaboration, and dedication. Our students have the opportunity to participate in Beginning Band, Intermediate Band, Advanced Band, Percussion Ensemble, Jazz Band, Drumline, Pep Band, Marching Band, and Winter Percussion.
Color guard is an important part of parades and halftime shows that the band performs at for thousands of people every year, and our guard is bran new this year. Our coach is a volunteer and unpaid, and responsible for bringing the activity to our kids.
With the addition of guard "rifles" to our color guard, students will be able to showcase new techniques and learning in their performances.
This new equipment will allow students to learn guard routines using flags and rifles. The new equipment will also help to encourage other students in the schools to come and join our great program.
