5th Grade Band Has Started at Gateway Elementary!!!!
That's right! Last week band classes started at Gateway with a bang. Actually, quite a few of them...and some squeaks...some honks...and a few crashes. But the experience will help us to appreciate the music we'll be making by the end of the year even more. The schedule for band is as follows:
Wednesday: Brass class [trumpets/trombones]
Thursday: Woodwinds class [flutes/clarinets/saxophones]
Friday: Percussion class
*please note that students attend band during their Fine Arts time and will not miss any classroom instruction to participate....
New students continue to be added to the band class lists as they are getting their instruments, etc. If your fifth grade student wishes to be in band there's still time to come on board. Any interested, dedicated student is welcome!
I am also excited about opportunities for our third and fourth grade students in music. Third graders will be participating in a music program in the spring as a celebration of Music In Our Schools Month. Fourth grade students will have the experience of learning the recorder during music class second semester. More information on these programs will be coming soon.
