Iíve been in the same small school for 20 years. Iíve had some good bands. Itís hard in a small school on regular years. But, losing the last few months with the senior leaders of 2020, last years hardships, and some quitters being contagious the past few years has led us into this current situation. Our drive, pride, student leadership is weak. This is not typical of our band.
Iíve not had a band this weak or young in 18 years. Iím so overwhelmed with feeling like Iíve wasted my life and Iíve not really made a difference in this place that I have I have purposefully stayed at in order to try a new tactic and build something that the community values.
I want to dig us out of this. Any suggestions on leadership? Itís almost as covid has made us soft. My juniors and seniors are good kids. All good players. Just too few of them, only 10 in each grade. Anyone else going through this?
