Fifth Grade Band informational classes and demonstrations take place in September.  We aim to start instruction on (or around) October 1st.  Band classes meet during the last class period of the day during the classroom intervention time.   At first your child will have one class meeting per week in a (relatively) small group of like instruments . . . like all trombones for example.  In December we will start having two classes per week (one small group and one full band class).  Fifth Grade Band performs one concert each year (in mid to late April). 
Fifth Grade Band is an ungraded class, but parents will receive at least two progress reports and may contact the band director at anytime for further updates.  "Achievement Line" checklists on page 47 of the band book may provide addtional feedback on student progress.
