Calling all past and present color guard!

This Saturday, April 2, 2015 is the Helotes Cornyval Parade in which the band and guard will march. All Fall Marching Guard members are invited to participate and all Winter Guard members are required to attend (unless prior arrangements with Ms. Shepherd have been made.)

Call time on Saturday is between 7:30-8:00am at OC. All members have to be ready on the practice field in uniform with equipment/instruments by 8:15-8:30am, so please plan accordingly for traffic and road closures around O’Connor/Kuentz and Leslie Road.) The parade starts at 9:30am and the busses will return to the school around 12pm (again depending on traffic.)

Color Guard dress code is warm up shirt, dark jeans and black tennies. (FYI, band dress code is black marching shoes, black socks, band shirt, jeans and belt.)

There will be a mandatory guard practice on Thursday, 4/30/15 at 7:00am (warm-up starts at 6:50am) and a mandatory full band/guard practice on Friday, 05/01/15, at 7:00am.

We are still in need of chaperones – not just for guard, but for band, too. Please contact Ginger Wilks at if you are willing to help. Please feel free to contact me, Barbara, or Ms. Shepherd with questions.

Thanks to all and hope to see everyone there!
