In the first few weeks of school, all 5th grader students will see a band instrument demonstration assembly, hear all the instruments and learn about how band works, and then get the opportunity to try out the instrument choices. The Band Handbook and registration materials will be going home shortly after the assembly to get students signed up.
The band instrument rental meetings (or the meeting to purchase the book/needed supplies for students who already have an instrument) are coming up soon. The opportunity to select a meeting time is in the handbook/registration materials- please sign up if you think that there is any chance you might be interested in a rental instrument. You could always cancel later, if you found a different source for an instrument.
**There is a weeknight and a Saturday option for each side of town, but if the other meeting time/location works better, please feel free to let Mrs. Schweihs know.
