2018 GHS Color Guard Information
The Grinnell High School Marching Band will be holding tryouts for the 2018 Color Guard. The colorguard, also known as the "flags", adds a visual aspect to the band’s performance with flags and other props and dance routines. Practices for the tryouts will be held before school Tuesday, April 24th through Friday, April 27th. Tryouts will be held on Saturday, April 28th at 8:00 a.m.
Please meet in the Grinnell High School Band Room at 6:50 a.m. starting April 24th for the practice sessions. All current 8th grade students are eligible to audition. We will conclude approximately 7:40 in order for 8th graders to travel to the middle school. Please use the West entrance next to the Auditorium to enter the building. 8th Graders should have their rides pick them up at 7:40 outside of the Auditorium so that they can return to the MS by 8:00.
Sign up for the auditions will be in the lunch room. Please stop by to sign up. Anyone needing more information about the 2018 Color Guard is asked to see or email Mr. Van Arkel for more information.
