Band and Orchestra Program

4th Grade Students Explore
March 01, 2019

Fourth grade parents, this is an exciting time of year!  Your child will be introduced to the Stillwater Area Schools Band and Orchestra Program during the last week of February.  They will have an opportunity to hear and sample a variety of instruments during this time.  All students in 5th grade have the opportunity to participate in band and orchestra.  We strongly encourage students to participate in the band or orchestra in 5th grade, as Stillwater Area Schools does require a music elective in 6th grade (band, choir, orchestra or general music).  5th grade band/orchestra are required for students who wish to register for band/orchestra in 6th grade.

Be sure to look for the packet with the Top Three Choices form that will come home with your student after the instrument presentations (or visit the form here:   This form indicates an interest in the program and should be returned to the school office.  These forms are due on Wednesday, March 6th.
