The orchestra teachers will be coming to 4th grade music classrooms during the month of May to show your child the instruments of the orchestra (violin, viola, cello and bass) and demonstrate the characteristics of each. Orchestra classes will begin next fall for 5th graders who are interested in being a part of the program. Students and their parents/guardians are asked to attend one of the following rental nights from 5:00-7:00:

Thursday, May 16th at Carl Ben Eielson

Tuesday, May 21st at Ben Franklin

Thursday, May 23rd at Discovery

At the event, you can sign up to rent an instrument and purchase supplies. Also, please plan on attending one of the parent information sessions either at 5:00-5:30 or 6:00-6:30. The parent information session will give you a chance to ask any questions and learn about opportunities you will have in orchestra. Plan to spend a total of about one hour. You may go to one of the three music stores in the area if you are unable to attend any of these rental nights.

Please call or email Mary Osterlund you have specific questions: osterlm@fargo.k12.nd.us


With the warmer weather coming please note the clothing that your students are wearing and the school’s dress code in your handbook, specifically #2) Tank tops and other clothing, such as short shorts, spaghetti strap tops, or those which expose a bare midriff, bare back, undergarments and any other clothing deemed inappropriate by the administration will not be permitted. We encourage students to have a light jacket, sweatshirt or sweater just in case it is chilly outside. We would discourage students from wearing sandals, especially flip flops, to school as they can be a danger on the playground and in gym classes. Students MUST have a pair of tennis shoes at school for gym class.

COG Safe Routes to School Public Meetings

Metro COG is offering public input meetings to collaborate with the community on the Fargo Safe Routes to School Plan. The intent of these meetings is to share information on existing conditions for walking and biking to school and gather comments from the community. The open houses will give families and community stakeholders an opportunity to provide input on issues and needs related to biking and walking. Everyone is invited to participate in whichever open house they’d prefer. Each meeting will be focused on the schools in that area (see below), but will also have information on the plan as a whole and the approach is consistent across all neighborhood/public input areas. The public meetings will be held at each middle school at the following times:

Date: Monday, May 6 | Location: Discovery Middle School – Lunchroom | Time: 6 - 7:30 p.m.

Discussion and information focused on:

Discovery Middle School; Ed Clapp Elementary; Eagles Elementary; Centennial Elementary; Bennett Elementary; Kennedy Elementary; Oak Grove Lutheran Elementary; Sullivan Middle School
