2023-2024 Gr 5 Course Optioning
Upper E Grade 5 students must submit options for their fine arts course so we can plan for the upcoming school year. In 2023-2024, UE 5 students are required to take either a band or strings instrumental course that meets regularly all year long. We held a preview night of all band and orchestra instruments for Gr 4 families on 03/14/23. Families should carefully consider your music selection as it is not always possible to make changes later. Vocal Music is optional in both UE 5 and 6 and replaces Study Hall if chosen.
