Fifth Grade Band Registration

posted Sep 16, 2013, 6:48 PM by Kyle Renchen

The instrument fitting process is almost done, which means we’re that much closer to starting fifth grade band!  This is just a reminder that this coming Tuesday is Fifth Grade Band registration.  If your student is intending to join band, please plan on coming with your student to the elementary music room (Mrs. Keefe’s room) to register.  The recommended method for obtaining an instrument is on a trial rent-to-own plan through The Music Shoppe in Normal or Champaign.  A low-cost rental plan has been made available by this music company, whereby you may rent an instrument for your child.  They are high quality instruments that are guaranteed to work and they provide your child with the best chances for success.  If financially able, we highly recommend renting through The Music Shoppe.

Band registration and rental of instruments to parents will be held in the elementary music room on Tuesday, September 17 from 4:00 pm-8:00 pm.  This is the time your student will finalize his/her decision on which instrument to play.  A Music Shoppe representative will be present to assist with rent-to-own plans, as well as answer any questions you may have.  In order to keep wait times to a minimum, we have developed the following schedule:  

 4:00-4:30 – Last name A-B 6:00-6:30 – Last name O-P
 4:30-5:00 – Last name C-F 6:30-7:00 – Last name Q-R
 5:00-5:30 – Last name G-L 7:00-7:30 – Last name S-V
 5:30-6:00 – Last name M-N 7:30-8:00 – Last name W-Z

To clarify, if your last name is between A-B, you may stop in anytime between 4:00-4:30 to register.  

If there are conflicts, we will, of course, let you to attend whenever you are able.  

I look forward to seeing you there!
