Dear Ridgeview Families,
 
Welcome Back!  Hopefully you all had a relaxing & fun summer! Please check the "upcoming dates" section & click on the tabs for your grade level to see our beginning of the year band information.  If you are a new 5th grader or a 6th grader who would like to start an instrument for the first time this year, get ready....the AWESOME Granite Bay High School Band will be coming to Ridgeview to demonstrate instruments on the 22nd. If you are a 6th grader in your second year of band....dust off those instruments & do a little practicing...we start on Tuesday, August 29th at 8:00am in the band room!
 
Looking forward to seeing you soon!
 
Mrs. Van
 
 
How Band Works at Ridgeview:
 
•If you are a 5th or 6th Grader this year, you may sign-up for band.  Parents need to provide an instrument (rent or purchase), method book & supplies.  There is no additional cost for the band instruction.
 
•We will have an instrument demonstration assembly at the beginning of the year, as well as a parent information/rental night. Please, do not purchase or rent an instrument until your child has seen the instrument choices that are available.
 
All band students will have 3 band classes per week: 2 before school at 8:00am and one during the school day.
 
•If you are a returning band member (a 6th grader who has played for the entire 5th grade year), please click on the "6th Grade Band" tab for more detailed information about band.
 
•If you are NEW to the Ridgeview Band (a 5th grader or a 6th grader who would like to start band this year), please click on the "5th Grade Band" tab for more information.
