Don't Settle For Your Present Level of Achievement
Welcome to the 2018 winter color guard season. We are all very excited to continue the tradition of excellence that King Philip color guard is so well known for. This year’s program plan will move us into a more contemporary musical genre while maintaining the sophistication that is uniquely KP. The staff consists completely of familiar faces. Our goal is to afford the members the opportunity to achieve success as a TEAM thru hard work and dedication in an atmosphere that is both nurturing and creative. In this packet you will find:
Guidelines for communicating information
Please understand that the staff is very dedicated and wants to help in any way possible. However, there are some times limits to what we can do. Please feel free to speak with Lennie before or after practice in person. If you are unable to meet in person at these times we are all available at the e-mail addresses listed above. For basic information or questions about scheduling Lennie is the guard director and will be the go to person. If for some reason a member will be late or absent from a rehearsal please email Erin or Lennie prior to the start of rehearsal. We have access to our email 24/7 and will respond and acknowledge ASAP.
In the event that there is a conflict or situation which requires additional attention please contact Mr Keough. He is the administrator assigned by the school and ultimately the person in charge.
We have a very educated staff of people who will be working hard to help the members grow and achieve success. While I understand that temptation will be there, we ask that the instruction be left to the staff, as they are the ones trained to do so.

RULES AND REGULATIONS
Respect everyone. Staff, members, parents and everyone we come in contact with as the KPRHS color guard.
Rehearsals are not optional. This is a team sport and the absence of one member affects the entire group.
Safety comes first. This means jewelry CAN NOT be worn during practices or performances unless an assigned part of the uniform. In the event of a new piercing or any that cannot be removed it must be covered to avoid any chance of injury.
Rehearsal attire is all black. Dance clothing or comparable comfortable wear is appropriate.
Cell phones are to remain off during practice. Please note silent mode is not off. In the event of an emergency please let the staff know and we will allow you to keep your phone at the front and on.
At all competitions cell phones will be collected by a staff member or chaperone so that they remain safe from vandals or thieves.
Appearance for performances will be determined by staff. This is a performing art and costumes and makeup must be as close to identical as possible. If you require special considerations please let us know and we will be more than happy to accommodate that.
HAVE FUN…… we understand that you give up several hours a week to do this and we want this to be a positive experience for all
