This vocal ensemble for students in grades 2-4 focuses on learning basic singing techniques and simple part work.

As our school's middle school choir, this vocal ensemble for students in grades 5-8 focuses on learning intermediate singing techniques and moderate to advanced part work.
Band- Mr. Bailey, Thursdays, 2:30-3:30
Beginning in fourth grade, students have the opportunity to participate in band. As part of the program, students must take private lessons on their instrument of choice with a qualified instructor. Music and parts are often original compositions or custom arrangements to challenge each student at the appropriate level.
