Check out our brochure!

Be sure to take a moment to read through all of the information in this year's "Back to School" music brochure! Here you will find information on music advocacy, grading in music, the Intermediate choirs, and teacher contact information. The brochure will be sent home with all Primary and Intermediate students during the first week of school.

Thanks for making 2015-2016 a success!

Your support of the Winfield music program last year was overwhelming! In the 2015-16 school year, you helped raise over $3,000 for a new set of risers at the Primary, came out in numbers exceeding 1,000 to enjoy the Primary Christmas concert, and gave your students the opportunity to perform in 3 different outstanding concerts with our Junior Warrior Choir and Bell Choir. Your continued support of music education is greatly appreciated! I can't wait to see what great things we do for music together this year!

The Junior Warrior Choir and Bell Choir will begin making music soon! Sign-up contracts will be sent home beginning the first week of school, and are due no later than Friday, August 19. Bell choir will begin Tuesday, August 23, and Choir will begin Thursday, August 25. The groups meet once a week after school, until 4:30.
