Beginning Band Information for Fifth Grade Students

Parents, Guardians, and Students,

I hope this finds you all well. The last time I saw the fifth grade students was on March 16th. At this point in the school year, I know many of them by name while being very excited to teach them about band. I’m still very excited to get to meet your student whether it is with their participation in my class next year or just seeing them out and around school.

In lieu of the paper handouts I gave your student back in March, I’ve created a Google Form which should make the process a little more bearable. Simply click the link on the left side of your screen that says Band Enrollment Form. When using this link, there will be no need to call, email, or text me the information. If you have a paper handout, please use this same link to register instead of filling out the paper form.

We have also added some instrument demonstration videos in the menu on the left. We included these in case you or your student needed to review the available instruments.  These demonstrations were produced by the United States Army Field Band and are excellent videos.

I understand we are all going through something one way or another. I cannot wait for school to begin in August. Your students are great human beings and their teachers and future teachers miss them. We hope this all passes soon so we can all get back to a normal sense of our lives.

Musically yours,

Cody Jinkerson, Band Director
