5th Grade Recorders

As a part of the music curriculum, and in preparation for our annual Fine Arts Night, we will soon be learning to play the soprano recorder in music class. We will begin the recorder unit at the end of January. Please note that all 5th grade students need to have a recorder. If your child does not already have a recorder, they may purchase one from Mrs. Schieffer for $3.00. Recorders can also be found at Dollar Tree, or students may bring their own.

Please return the detachable form to your child’s classroom teacher with cash in an envelope, or a CHECK made payable to Winfield Schools. After we have begun our instructional unit on recorders, please encourage your child to practice and show off what they've learned! Your child is responsible for bringing their recorder to every music class.

Choir & Bell Choir

Choir and bell choir will begin again soon! Any returning students do not need to sign up again. Signup forms will be sent home for any new student wishing to participate in either group. Please note that choir is open to any student 3-5, and bell choir is open to grades 4 &5. All forms are due no later than January 15 (no late forms will be accepted). Bell choir will begin after school on Tuesday, January 19, and will meet every Tuesday thereafter. Choir meets every Thursday after school and will begin Thursday, January 21.


Congratulations to all Winfield students on two very outstanding Christmas performances! From over 300 students on stage at the Primary concert, to a wonderful performance by the choir and bell choir at the Intermediate Concert, this year was most definitely a success! We can't wait to see what's to come in the new year!
