Join the Band!
About the Bands
At Hehnly School, students in fourth and fifth grade are invited to join band in addition to their weekly classroom music experience. Students who join band receive weekly 30 minute group lessons on their instrument in addition to a large-group morning rehearsals. Group lessons take place during the school day (students are responsible for maintaining an acceptable level of classwork), and large group rehearsals take place before school one day each week.
How to Join
At the end of the school year, upcoming 4th and 5th graders are invited to join band via a letter that is sent home. Returning the letter in time with each student's top 3 choices of instrument as well as a parent signature assures a student's involvement in the program.
If a student changes there mind over the summer, or is unable to complete a form on time, don't worry! Students are given a second opportunity to sign up for band in September.
All paperwork necessary to join band can be downloaded below. Copies can also be picked up from Miss. Bowers.
