Marching Band/Color Guard
Marching Band supports football games in the Fall with field shows and in-stand repertoire, and perform at pep rallies. The Band is a core part of Pen High school spirit! Marching Band consists of the core band as well as the color guard and percussion section. In the Fall, all sections perform together at field shows and football games. In the Spring, Marching Band converts to Concert Band and students may additionally choose to participate in competitive Winter Guard and Indoor Percussion ensembles.
Marching Band students receive either year round P.E. credit or year round fine arts credit.

The Marching Band plays at all home football games and some away games and march in the Peninsula Holiday Parade the first weekend of December.
