Interested in Band? Look Here
  • Middle school band is a pre-requisite for high school band.  Any students interested in band should join as a 7th grader in the 2017 - 2018 school year.  Some older students may be accepted on a case by case basis.  See Mrs. Reitz for details.   
  • Beginning band members will have the opportunity to begin learning an instrument during the time between breakfast and 1st period.  They will also be able to come for band help during the Thursday after school tutoring sessions beginning in November.
  • Beginning band students will be expected to perform at our Fine Arts nights on May 11th, 2017.
  • The cost for beginning band will be $20.00.  This will provide them with a band polo that they will wear at our Fine Arts performance and a beginning band book.  The shirt and book will be theirs to keep.
  • Students who begin band in 6th grade will be able to sign up for full year band class as 7th graders.
  • Students will have a choice between renting their own instrument and using a school instrument.  In order to use a school instrument, students will need to have an instrument contract signed (this will be sent separately once the permission form is returned to Mrs. Reitz).
