Fifth Graders - Band Tryouts

On Monday, August 31 our new band director, Joseph Girgenti spoke with all fifth grade students about signing up for band.  They will be taking home a letter about band and if interested filling out the form saying they are interested in trying out to play one of the four instruments.  Parents need to sign the form.  They will need to return the letter on Wednesday September 2 if they wish to try out.  This is the only day for tryouts as band class will start the next Wednesday, September 9th.  

Students learned that they have to have commitment, be responsible and come to class all year plus practice at home.  They also learned that you might have to give up your regular special time to participate and not everyone will get into band.  He only has so many slots.  Students are to pick their first, second and third choices.  It is a yearlong commitment and band classes will meet on Monday and Wednesday at 7:30-8:10 a.m.
