The Color Guard is part of the Pride of Robert E. Lee Marching Band. The Color Guard is made up of 9th-12th grade students that is the non-musical section that provides additional visual aspects to the performance. Color guard uses props, along with movement, to express dynamic passages in the music accompanying the marching band show. The purpose of the Color Guard is to interpret the music that the marching band is playing via the synchronized spinning of flags, sabers, rifles, and through dance.
The Color Guard performs at all REL pep rallies, varsity football games, marching contests, and community events. Due to the Texas No Pass, No Play Law, students must earn passing grades for all classes at the end of the six weeks grading period. Students not meeting the grading requirements will not be eligible to participate in before and after school events. Much of the fall semester the color guard will rehearse to prepare the halftime/contest show. The rehearsal requirements are quite rigorous. There are many events, which occur throughout the late spring, summer, and fall which pertain to the color guard. Please view the calendar and refer back to the website to stay updated with the color guard/marching band calendar.
