5th grade is an exciting time for students because they get to graduate from elementary school and become middle schoolers! Part of that big step includes deciding what electives you want to take in the 6th grade! Most 6th graders don't get a choice in what electives they get rotated through but you can CHOOSE to join band!
6th grade is the ONLY time you can sign up to join the band and you have to start at the beginning of the school year. Capps does not offer beginning band classes later in the school year or in 7th and 8th grade. The BEST part though, is that you do not have to have ANY musical experience to be a part of the band! Mrs. Gaffner will teach you EVERYTHING you need to know to be successful!
