Band & Strings Announcement
Wednesday, August 31, 2016 9:10 PM


Instrument demos were done for all 4th grade students in the Commons on Wednesday, Aug. 31. Students got to hear and see Mike play a flute, clarinet, alto sax, trumpet, trombone, baritone, percussion, violin, viola, cello and bass.  Students were then given a form to take home to their parents/guardians to talk about whether or not their child is ready to learn how to play either a band or a stringed instrument this year at Barton.  Students will get an opportunity to try out 3 instruments.  Please get the form filled out and returned to Barton as soon as possible.  Mike starts the tryouts this Friday, Sept. 2nd!  There is a rental fee of $30.00 for the school year.  Scholarships are available upon request.  Band starts Wednesday, Sept. 14th and strings start Friday, Sept. 16th for all returning students!
