BAND AND ORCHESTRA NEWS:
Hello from the Band and Orchestra programs! Over the last few weeks, I have been lucky enough to be able to work with the 5th grade students as we are preparing for band and orchestra to begin. Your student has now been introduced to the instruments they are able to sign up to play. This would normally have taken place at the end of 4th grade, however Covid has made us change our plans a bit! Over the next two weeks, I will be meeting with your child to help them decide what instrument might be a good fit for them. By conference time (March 8) we will have a better idea of what instrument they will want to play in the orchestra or band. I will be in the 5th grade studio during conferences and would love to meet with you and discuss signing up.
In the meantime, please mark your calendars for 5th Grade Band and Orchestra Sign-Up Night! More information will come in the near future!
