Beginning band sign up set for fifth-graders

Hudson Middle and High School band directors Aaron Hilden, Ryan McCarthy, Carl Meincke and Connie Root are visiting elementary schools this week to discuss band with current fifth-grade students. With the teachers are several students, demonstrating band instruments to the fifth-graders.

Parents of all fifth-grade students received a band packet of information in the mail from the middle school band directors in mid-March. An important, but brief, informational meeting concerning the beginning band program is scheduled in the middle school band room Monday, March 29 at 7 p.m.

Beginning band registration for all present fifth-graders is Monday, April 5 from 4-8:30 p.m. at the Hudson Middle School. A parent must accompany his or her child to this event. Each child will receive a 15-minute individual conference with a certified music teacher who will assist them with the selection of an instrument.

Parents will sign up their child for this individual conference time at the conclusion of the informational meeting on March 29. Anyone unable to attend that meeting should e-mail middle school band director Carl Meincke after March 29 but by Thursday, April 1 at 4 p.m. at or call (715) 377-3820, ext. 4175. Those interested may schedule a child's individual conference for the April 5 band registration night at that time.
