Welcome back to the 18-19 school year!
All 5th grade students at Prairie Wind had the opportunity to try out some band instruments during the last few weeks of their 4th grade year. This allowed band staff to evaluate which instruments each student will be the most successful playing. All 5th grade students also received a letter in the US mail over the summer that outlined band instruments that would be a good fit for them to play. If you were not at Prairie Wind last year Mr. Cosby will meet with you at the beginning of this year to evaluate what instruments would work best for you.
Mr. Cosby will be meeting with all the 5th grade classrooms on Thursday, August 16th to answer any questions they may have about joining band at Prairie Wind. Band registration forms will also be given to students at this time (yellow form). Students who would like to participate in band should return the registration form to Mr. Cosby as soon as possible.
Please note that parents/guardians do NOT need to send band instruments to school with students at this time! Mr. Cosby will let your student know when it is time to bring their instrument.
Feel free to contact Mr. Cosby at any time with any questions you have about band lessons- his contact information is in the box on the left of this page.
