Third Graders

This is your opportunity to become part of the award-winning District 27 band and orchestra! It is an exciting time for the 3rd graders, as they explore the different instruments in the band and orchestra, learn about the sounds, and think about the ones that they like.  On Tuesday, May 1, instrumental music teachers (Ms. Valente, Mr. Lograsso, and Mr. Gordon) will meet with all 3rd graders to talk about and demonstrate the instruments. There will be an informational meeting that evening (Tuesday, May 1) at 7:00 PM in the Shabonee Gym for parents to learn about the instrumental music program and how to sign up for an individual instrument selection appointment. At the appointment, students will be able to try out their three favorite instruments and then select the instrument that they would like to play in 4th grade.  Please contact Ms. Valente (valente.c@nb27.org or 847-498-4970 ext. 4467) with any questions.
