MONDAY - Grades K through 4 - with Instructor Faith Ward


Band Ensemble

This class will give students a chance to rehearse and work together as one band. By working across grade levels, students will gain confidence and a sense of camaraderie with their fellow musicians, thus boosting and encouraging a sense of enthusiasm and commitment to a continually rigorous pursuit toward developing more advance techniques and quality musicianship. These acquired skills and traits will all contribute to rapid growth and success for each individual musician, as well as for the GVMS music program. MHS students will participate by playing and assisting Mr. Topham with some of the younger players...(Psst...this might be something that would look good on a college application!)

Inclement Weather Policy: MADE will follow the decisions made by the Monson Public Schools for canceling the program due to weather. Please note, for early release during the school day, due to weather, MADE students should follow the dismissal procedure that their school has on record. After the school day has ended concerns and questions regarding weather can be directed to the MADE coordinator. Cancellations due to weather may not be rescheduled.

Behavior Policy: Negative behaviors including but not limited to: endangering the health & safety of students or staff, continues disruption of the program or unacceptable behavior/use of profanity/threats to students or staff will result in immediate termination, without refund. If students have been suspended from school or have had 2 or more detentions they will not be able to participate. Students are expected to follow all school rules and meet behavior expectations while here in school. The risk is far too great to allow students to participate in after school clubs if they have established patterns of making poor choices while at school.
