Attention 3rd Graders: It’s time for you to sign up to join ORCHESTRA! Remember to watch this video (click HERE) to learn about the string instruments you can play starting soon! Being in Orchestra is super fun, but don’t take our word for it - listen to these middle and high school students tell you why to join orchestra! Your school orchestra teacher, Ms. Vig visited your class recently to demonstrate each instrument, and now it’s time for you to pick the instrument YOU want to play! Interest forms will be re-sent out to families this coming Monday, February 22.

Summer Orchestra: Most of our 3rd grade students sign up to start learning their instruments during the summer before 4th grade. Summer Orchestra is a 4 week session during the month of July. Look for registration information coming soon. We learn all the basics of playing during Summer Orchestra, and you’ll be amazed how good you get on your new instrument! You can also start playing when school starts in the fall, when you’re a 4th grader.

Current 4th and 5TH Graders: You haven’t missed your chance to JOIN THE ORCHESTRA! The Island Lake Orchestra is available to students in the 4th & 5th grade. Interested students are encouraged to watch an informational video HERE This video includes information about which string instruments you can choose to play, and the fun and exciting opportunities you will experience in orchestra.
