Thursday, September 16, 2010 Tri-County News- Kimball, MN Students Youth IIIIIIIII11 I11 .... IRRnNHNNNNRNNNI Page 7 KES Beginner Band meeting As fifth- or sixth-graders at Kimball Elementary School, stu- dents have the opportunity to join the Kimball band program. No prior musical experience is nec- essary, and we encourage all stu- dents with an interest in music to join our band. There will be an informational meeting for all interested students and their parents at 7 p.m. Mon- day, Sept. 20, in the KES Experi- ence Room. At this meeting we will discuss what the band program is all about and what it has to offer each student. We will also dis- cuss instrument selection, rental programs, and have parents sign up for a time where the student can actually try each instrument, and together we can decide which instrument the student is best suited for. These "trial times" will be held between 4 and 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 22, so please be ready to sign up for a time slot. If you choose to do so, you may even take care of the instrument rental at this trial time and your child will be completely ready to go when lessons begin. This meeting in no way com- mits students to anything, so even if you or your child are unsure about joining band, please come and gather some information so you can make an informed deci- sion. It&apos;s very important that a par- ent is with the student at both the meeting and try-out. We hope to see you the evening of the Sept. 20, but if you cannot attend, please contact Mr. Haake at (320) 398-7700 (ext. 119), or )!!!
