Evergreen School District Schools Offer a Variety of Enrichment Programs
Enrichment classes are programs that support learning and individualized strengths. Core subjects such as math and reading are important to build a strong base for every child’s education, but enrichment activities and extracurricular classes may be where your child shines. ESD offers these enrichment programs for our students.
Music Program (Grades 5-6)
The Evergreen School District Band is an optional part of the curriculum offered to all 5th and 6th grade students. Class meets for approximately 45 minutes once a week during the school day and is a “Performing Arts” class. Instruction is offered in flute, clarinet, alto saxophone, trumpet, and trombone.
There is no cost for this program. However, all students may need to rent or buy their instrument and are expected to purchase a cleaning/care kit for their instrument of choice. Students choosing to learn clarinet or alto saxophone also need reeds.
Performances are important and all students are expected to perform in the district winter and spring concerts.
Registration and classes begin in September. For more information, visit Mrs. Gallagher's Band Program website(opens in new window/tab) or contact Mrs. Gallagher directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
