Dear 5th Grade Parents,
On Monday, May 20th , our CLS band and choir teachers will be visiting the elementary school to give 5th graders a presentation on selecting their music class in middle school. All incoming 6th graders will be required to take either band or choir. After our presentation, we will have time for each child to try-out various instruments throughout the day, and we will help them select the best instrument for them, should they wish to enroll in band as their music class.
On this day, all 5th graders will be distributed a “6th Grade Music Class Enrollment” form when they go through the instrument testing demonstration. This form will need to be completed and returned to their teacher by the following Friday (5/24).
EVERY STUDENT MUST RETURN A FORM – our guidance counselor will not
“guess place” anyone who does not return the form.
Also, please note that we will hold a 6th Grade Beginning Band Informational Meeting
on Wednesday, May 22nd at 6:30 PM in the CMS Gym immediately following
Spring Open House. We will be answering/addressing the most commonly asked questions and providing you with all the details you will need if your child would like to sign up for band next year in middle school.
In addition, representatives from Pellegrino Music Center (who will also be helping your child make instrument selections during school on the 20th) will be there to answer any questions you may have about instrument rental. You can even take care of all of your child’s needs (instrument/book/supplies) “on-the-spot” that evening with nothing else to worry about… they will deliver everything to your child in school when we start back up in August!
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via email or phone:
firstname.lastname@example.org | (330) 948-2500 x20217
Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you!
Mr. Joe Fudale
Cloverleaf Middle School Band Director
