The Junior High Band is made up of students from the 7th and 8th grades. They start the school year with marching band and participate in the IKM-Manning Homecoming Parade. Starting with the 2nd quarter, we move to the concert band season and perform for a Veteran's Day Ceremony in Manilla, as well as a Winter Concert and Spring Concert. During the 2nd semester, the students also participate in the IKM-Manning Middle School Solo/Ensemble Contest. Students may also volunteer to perform with the high school students during basketball pep bands as well at the Manning Memorial Day Ceremonies. Junior High students also participate in several SW Iowa Honor Bands throughout the school year.
