Students may decorate their instruments, just make sure the instrument is still playable and that you have not done anything that damages the instrument or the finish of your instrument.

Attention 2020-2021 5th Grade Students:
The link at the bottom of this announcement is our own personal 'Be Part of the Band' website.
Here you will find statistics on involvement in the music program; information about the different instruments for beginning band; a matching game to help with instrument selection as well as an interest survey that will help Ms. Waldo help you select the right instrument.
All of the instrument videos we watched in 4th grade music are available on this page as well.
I look forward to working with all of you this coming school year. I will be posting more information as it becomes available in regards to instrument testing, rental night etc.
