BAND 2019 - 2010 - INFO FROM MRS. SCHWEIHS
5th Grade- it's time to JOIN BAND!!
All 5th grade students should have brought home the 2019 Olson Band Handbook/registration materials to share with their families. Everyone has seen Mrs. Schweihs play the instruments, and watched a video that includes past students sharing thoughts about their band experience , and ton of pictures of what band looks like! Interested students have begun trying the instruments. Registration forms are due soon. Please encourage your child to give it a try! It is a lot of fun. Even if they haven't enjoyed past musical experiences, perhaps they just haven't found the RIGHT instrument! Check out this movie about how 5th band works in D200, and these video links from my website to hear the instruments in action! JOIN BAND- you'll never know if you will like it unless you try!
