You have been notified that you made the team. The cheerleading sponsor informs you that you can no longer be in band if you are cheering on Varsity nights, since the band marches during half time at the football games. You have been in the band since the fifth grade and you have really enjoyed being in the band and going on band trips. Next year the band is going to disney world. What do you do?
Step 2 1. You could leave the band and be popular but will have to the leave the friends you made in the band and the band is going to Disney World.
2.you could stay in band and stay with all of your friends and get to go to disney world wit all of your friends.
