8MEH.1.1 : Band or Cheer squad

  • An eighth grade student has been in band since 5th grade and on the junior varsity cheer leading squad. She tried out for the varsity team for next year and she got excepted but she can no longer play band if she does the varsity cheer leading squad because the band marches during half time at varsity games. You enjoy going on trips and doing band and next year the band is going to Disney World. What do you do?
  • You can either quit band and join the varsity cheer leading squad or stay on the junior varsity cheer leading squad but still be able to be on the band team and go on trips.
  • If you join the varsity cheer leading squad then you won't be able to do band or go on band trips. Or if you stay on the junior varsity cheer leading squad but still be able to play band and go on the band trips.
  • I would just stay on the junior varsity cheer leading squad and still be able to play band especially if I enjoy band and like to go on the trips.
  • I would stay in band and on the junior varsity cheer leading squad.
  • So instead of me not being able to do something that I love for something that I might just like, I am doing both except I am just staying on the junior varsity cheer squad but at least i will still be able to stay on the band group and go on the trips to play.
