    As for Schlitterbahn (Honor band and Concert Band), at this time, we are not anticipating canceling the trip, but since the situation changes daily, we are actively monitoring and will make that decision as we get closer. For now, hold the fee and we’ll communicate more about this as we get closer. We will extend the payment date when we return to school or refund the money depending on how the situation changes.

    I cannot wait to see y'all!!! Stay safe and please stay healthy!

    5th Grade Fine Arts: Introduction to Band 

    9 Week Course

    1. Will I need to purchase any materials or instruments for my child?
      • Students will not need to purchase anything to be successful in this class.
    2. How is the course structured?
      • Students will attend band for a 5 week portion in the fall semester and learn concepts of musicianship as they apply to being in band. We will learn on Nuvo Pre Band Instruments as well as be introduced to the qualities of band instruments offered in beginning band.
      • In the spring semester, students will revisit band for 4 weeks. We will continue learning music fundamentals and begin the instrument selection process for all students interested in band. 
    3. Will there be an investment if my child decides to do band in 6th grade?
      • There will be an investment that depends on what instrument is chosen and whether you rent or buy. Students will also be required to have supplies for those instruments that will be necessary for learning and cleaning the instrument. There are many different options to consider when it comes to investing in items for band so it is best to ask me questions so that you can ensure that your investment is worth it. I am happy to help you navigate this!
      • There is also a time investment, and a student's success depends directly on the effort put in! Being a part of the band is a very fulfilling experience that leads to many wonderful and fun opportunities. As parents or guardians, I will need your help so that we can work together to ensure they get the most out of that experience.

     6th Grade Concert and Honor Band 

    Full Year Course 

    Will I need to purchase new materials or instruments for my child? 

    • Returning Band Students will need to add two books to their supplies. Everything else is the same as last year. Supply sheets are linked above.
    • Students new to band will have to aquire an instrument and supplies according to what the child was fitted for. If your child signed up for band they were fitted on the last week of school and given information. Please reach out to me via email if you did not receive that information for any reason or you are moving into the district and would like to have your child fitted.
    1. My child is a returning band student, but I do not know their audition result.
      • Please contact me via email. Students auditioned through their end of year exams. All students in 6th Grade Band will perform with the concert band regardless of level. Students scoring high within their sections were asked to join honor band.
    2. I never received emails from Mrs. Bryan in the previous school year.
      • Email is my best way of communicating with you. I do send out all important information via papers home and will be utilizing Remind texts this upcoming year. I only send out emails to keep you updated on hand outs sent home and remiders of events. Please email me to get this resolved.
