Middle School Colorguard

After months of planning we are ready to launch our new middle school colorguard program! This will be a districtwide middle school colorguard it will be open to all middle school students in our district including Edison. 
Check out this video! 
Rehearsals will be at Washington on Wednesdays from 5:30-7:00 starting November 29th. 
Important Notes:
  • This will prepare students for high school colorguard and its recommended if they are planing on joining Platt or Maloney programs. 

  • This is an indoor program and will take place in the Washington gym. 

  • This is a great way to get students who are not in band/orchestra/chorus involved in a performing ensemble.

  • Guard is open to both male and female students in grades 6-8. 

  • Many guard members also play an instrument. Students can perform in colorguard as well as band and other ensembles at the middle and high school levels.

  • There is no cost associated with this program 

  • You do not need any experience! Just come and we will teach you everything!
