    No. Not really. Some of the companys have "company songs." 4th company is most famous for their song.

    However, if King's Point were like Hogwarts (which sometimes it seems like it with all of the long rain coats and uniforms) the breakdown would go as follows:

    Band Company- Hufflepuff
    Second Company/1st Company-Ravenclaw
    Third Company- Slytherin
    Fourth Company-Gryffindor

    Seriously, a bunch of King's Pointers had a discussion about this one day. & I figured it would be approriate with the release of the movie next week. Third Company is Slytherin because they're sly and a bit evil in their ways. Plus the third company CO is most like SNAPE. 4th Company is Gryffindor because they tend to be the most athletic and cunning of the school. Band co is hufflepuffs because they contain a lot of funny quirks to them and have interesting personalities. Second/1st are Ravenclaw .. well, just by default.

    So there you have it :) the Harry Potter breakdown of KP.

    I'm not exactly sure.. it has something to do with victory and 'drink till you fall' haha it sorta sounds like an old sailor song. I will check with one of my 4th company friends :smile: I am a member of Third Company myself.

    Great, now my son is a member of the sly, devious, Slytherin team......gotta laugh at that......Gotta admit it does kind of fit.......He loves to read and he does identify with the "Good" Bad Guys......V for Vendetta and The Boondock Saints are two of his favorite movies..............when you get back 2012 hopefully, you will meet the lowly Plebe!

    The other companies probably have names but I don't think any are as well deserved. I dubbed 3rd co with the name around parents weekend back in 05 after they all dressed up as ninjas & got alittle nuts over some spirit mission. It stuck. Son had it engraved on the inside of his class ring. The history is that 3rd co were/are the ones always in trouble & deemed alittle crazy. I just think they have unappreciated imagination. They will risk lock down for ten minutes of fun. LOL

    By the time ya'll receive that second phone call, you will begin to hear some of the funny stories that are going on. By parents week-end, those kids have learned to be pros at finding fun in the oddest forms. Look out for 3rd co. When they begin to meld together, evil begins. They're rough! They're tough! :biggrin:

    Whoops! Sorry 2012. I didn't see your response. Made me laugh. And please don't let them toliet paper this year. That drove the parents nuts last year when they'd used up their 6 months supply & people had to send Charmin. :rolleyes:

    famous 4th company song

    Yeah, the fourth co song is as follows
    “All hail the mighty forth co,
    You bring the wiskey, ill bring the coors,
    Send some plebes out for some gin,
    And don’t let a sober officer in.

    We’ll never stager, we’ll never fall,
    We sober up on grain alchol
    And when we die we’ll burn in hell,
    For the glory of all 4th co, 4th co!”
    Its sung to the noter dame fight song
