5th Grade Band

2021-2022 School Year

Getting the Band Back Together!

Our 5th grade is coming back this fall!

Mrs. Biederman, our current Band Director, is on maternity leave and will be returning later this fall. In the interim, Mr. Urosev will be hosting our 5th graders in our band program at Manning Elementary.

In-School - Band is an opportunity for all 5th graders that takes place during the school day.

After-School - We have had after school practices one day per week in prior years, but will await Mrs. Biederman's return before potentially adding this.

Concerts - We typically have 2-3 concerts per year (Winter, Spring/End-of-Year). These are held in the evening at Westmont High School in the auditorium. More details to come.

Fee - There is a $21 fee for participation in this club (music copyrights, etc).
