  • Attention 7th Graders !!! If you already play an instrument or even if you don't and you just like music.....  Why not try a Band Instrument next year ? There are current openings in Mr. G's Beginning Band classes for Fall 2018. The classes meet everyday, so we move way faster than the Elementary After School Program. The class also does its own Great America Field Trip each May !!!  Just pick up a Band questionnaire from Mrs. Harden in the business office, fill it out and return it to the office. You can also contact one of the Assistant Principals Mrs. Renoir or Mrs. Watson Bird. Thanks !!!
