Band and Orchestra Instrument Selection for 3rd Graders

3rd grade students have the opportunity to select a band or orchestra instrument to play in 4th grade, and we are excited to begin the selection process. We look forward to welcoming your child to band or orchestra!

On Thursday, April 21, Mrs. Valente and Mr. Lograsso, will have an information night for parents about the band and orchestra program and instrument selection process. The meeting will last about 30 minutes and will take place in person in the Shabonee gym beginning at 6:00 pm. Information about instrument selection appointment scheduling will be shared at the meeting.  

The selection appointments will take place at Shabonee on:

Tuesday, May 3 - 9:30 am - 7:45 pm

Thursday, May 5 - 9:30 am - 7:45 pm 

Students will try out three instruments of their choice at the instrument selection appointment and learn to produce their first sounds. The appointment will finish with the student selecting the instrument they would like to play in 4th grade. In addition, parents will be assisted in arranging for their child's instrument.  

Parents who cannot attend the information night will receive information by email on Friday morning, April 22.  

Please contact Mrs. Valente with any questions.
