Drill Team Rehearsal

Each week on Fridays, we rehearse with the Eaglettes. This is especially important to note because ALL woodwinds, brass and drumline students must remember to bring their flip folders stuffed with this week’s drill team tune (which happens to be Lips are Movin this week). Anyone who forget’s his/her flip folder and drill team tune at this rehearsal will automatically fail inspection for this week so make sure you remember!

You can always find the “drill team tune” for the week by going to the Official Band Calendar at
