 Joining Band at Discovery for 2015-16

Are you new to Discovery this year? Come and be a part of the award-winning Discovery MS Band program! Here is how a student can still join band at Discovery.

For new 7th and 8th graders who have been in Band at a different school: A parent/guardian of a student wishing to join band simply needs to write an email to the appropriate Discovery counselor asking that they be added to Band at Discovery. Make sure and tell them what instrument the student already plays.

For incoming 6th graders: A parent/guardian of the incoming 6th grader wishing to join band simply needs to write an email to the appropriate Discovery counselor asking that they be added to Beginning Band at Discovery. They should also list a preferred instrument as well (if known).

NOTE: There is an instrument fitting at Dodson Elementary School on Wednesday, August 26 from 8am-10am for any student still wishing to try an instrument (the fitting only takes about ten minutes).

Here is the info for the Discovery counselors:

Stacie Majszak – last names A-L, stacie.majszak@pccsk12.comCindy Hilger – last names M-Z, cindy.hilger@pccsk12.com

That’s it! Nice and easy.

Also, if a parent and/or student wishes to know more about the Discovery Band, they may visit our site at http://www.discoverybands.org for more information to commonly asked questions. If a parent or student wishes to contact me, my contact info is below. Please feel free to forward this email to anyone interested.

Thank you and see you all on September 8!
