: I have this problem, actually it has been a
: problem here longer than I have been here,
: that the upperclassmen want to quit band for
: next year because it is not a state marching
: year, so why be in band. I have tried
: everything I know of to fix this problem.
: Like I say, it has been a problem at this
: school for years before I came and I know
: that to change an attitude like this will
: take time. I am happy teaching the kids in
: front of me when they are there, but I am
: not sure that rebuilding a marching program
: every two years is what is best nor
: something that I am excited about doing.
: What do you do to keep kids in the program
: during non-state years?
