The first few days for Beginners  we will barely get in, get seated, take roll, do some rhythmic activities, and show them how to get on the buses      :-)
     -So, they won’t really need their supplies, so if you’re waiting on an instrument or a book, they’ll be fine.  ALWAYS ATTEND, EVEN IF YOU DON'T YOUR HAVE INSTRUMENT/BOOK. 
     -We’ll get going on that the next week’s classes.

Cadet Band will start playing right away.


Coming to EMS in the morning:

  • Mr. Beise and Mr. Peterson are here 7:20 AM at the latest
  • We have a new security system. The Doors will be open for Elementary Band arrival at 7:45.


  • Parents are responsible for getting students to Elementary Band in the morning.
  • PLEASE CARPOOL as much as you can; Buses to the Middle Schools are at capacity and can't accommodate the Elementary Band or Orchestra program students. Some of them arrive too late for 8:05 Elementary Band anyway. 

Getting Back to School:

  • BUS: To Alcott, Dickinson will walk. 


We look forward to meeting and working with you!
