Iziah Ruiz: How do you think the Harris Middle School (HMS) Pep Rally was?
Mr. Napper: The HMS Pep Rally was fun and loud!
Ruiz: Was it above or below your expectations?
Napper: It was what I expected at HMS, since I’ve been to pep rallies at Community Middle School (CMS).
Ruiz: Will you do another pep rally?
Napper: Yes, I will definitely play in another pep rally.
Ruiz: What would you do different?
Napper: Hear the band play more.
Ruiz: Was there any time the band messed up?
Ruiz: When did the band mess up?
Napper: I don’t remember a specific mistake, but I know that everybody messes up at some time. My only expectation is that we learn from our mistakes.
Ruiz: Will you play any more songs?
Napper: Yes, a snippet of Uptown Funk.
Ruiz: How was the homecoming game?
Napper: Unfortunately, we were not able to stay and play for the game. Due to the possibility of continued rainfall, I choose to dismiss the band, so that we could prevent any instrument damage.
Ruiz: Thank you for your time.
Greg Napper is the band director at Harris Middle School, this is his first year at HMS.
