Students will begin watching the following informational videos regarding class choices for the 2016-2017 school year during homeroom this week:
The first competition for the Clinton Indoor Percussion Ensemble and the Clinton Winter Guard definitely set the bar high for the remainder of their seasons. Clinton Percussion, under the direction of assistant band director Steven Ross, is one of only two groups in the state that is allowed to compete in "World Class" competition. Being the only one of those groups at this show, they scored a 78.3, which is a VERY high number for the first competition of the season. This is also the highest world class score in the Mississippi Indoor Association, thus far.
The Clinton Winterguard under the direction of assistant band director Robyn Lawson, had a pretty emotional night, winning their classification and subsequently being promoted to the next higher classification! This is the only winterguard in the state that has been promoted to a classification higher than what they started. The winterguard swept all captions of equipment analysis, movement analysis, design analysis, and general effect.
