A Message from Mr. Baione

instrI am excited to announce this year that Lake Forest Central Elementary will start a 4th grade beginning band program.  This is an opportunity for your child to learn how to play an instrument beginning in 4th grade.  It is also a chance to develop students at a higher level in preparation for the middle and high school band programs here at Lake Forest.

On August 26th there will be an information assembly for 4th grade students and parents during the afternoon before dismissal on how they can sign up for the band, as well as information on how to rent or purchase their instrument.

Students will receive sign-up forms after the assembly that day.  Sign-up forms can be turned in from August 26-September 9th.  Schedules will be passed out to the students and parents on September 16th and band will start on September 19th.  If you want to sign up early, sign-up forms will also be available on the website www.lf.k12.de.us/central.  Forms can be emailed to jnbaione@lf.k12.de.us, turned in to the main office, or to Mr. Baione the first few days of school.

This will not affect the 5th grade band students.  Information to the students who signed up for 5th grade band this past spring and when band starts for them will be given out the first few days of school.  There will also be a sign up form online for 5th grade students who did not sign up in the spring and would like to join.
