Marching band is a large part of the band player’s lives with how much time they spend practicing and improving.

“Placement wise, this has been the best year that I have [been in the program],” senior trumpet player Sin Wang said. “I would say I enjoy the work ethic that we put into the program.”

The Marching Band had received their highest score of their season in their final performance of 74 points.

“My favorite memories are from the competitions and performances,” freshman flute player Rylan Trotter said.

Preparing for ACT Testing

This year for ACT testing, students are able to prepare by taking semester classes such as the ACT prep taught by English teacher Diane Thompson and math and sciences covered by Kent Stover that is still available second semester.

“Basically there’s this one class made up of roughly 30 kids and it’s split in half. [Stover] has half and I have half and second quarter the kids switch,” Thompson said.

This class is used so all sections of the ACT are being covered along with ACT bootcamps that Thompson does outside of school.

There are five national ACT test dates, the nearest one being Feb. 10 with a registration deadline of Jan. 5 the rest are available on where students can register and learn more on the ACT testings.

“I really do believe that if you put the time and effort into honing the skills that you aren’t really that great with, you can increase your scores,” Thompson said. “But you can’t just not do anything.”
