Who are the Section Leaders?
In the band classroom, students have the opportunity to accept leadership roles and honors in many ways.
Section leaders are appointed by Mr. Henson and take on a large responsibility for making sure every member of the section (by instrument) has learned the music. Prior musical and leadership experience is required in order to be a section leader.
The highest standards of behavior and respect on the bus, in the parade and at the game will be expected!!
1. Be on their best manners at all times.
2. Bring their own band instruments and all music
3. Memorize the parade music
