Things to Note 🎵:

Leadership Mondays 2024

It's crazy that we already need to start thinking about Leadership for the upcoming school year! If you are interested in becoming a part of the leadership team for 23-24, then you should do the following:

  • Let a Drum Major/ Quartermaster know you are interested

  • Purchase 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens by Sean Covey (Do NOT Purchase Stephen Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People)

  • Plan to attend the Leadership Monday Meetings on 2/26, 3/4, 3/11, 3/25, 4/1, 4/8, 4/15, and 4/22.

  • Take a look at the below document if you want some ideas on things that we look for out of potential candidates.
