Fifth Grade Music


Fifth grade music will provide great opportunities this year.  Students have an opportunity to join band or choir in addition to the regular encore schedule.  Mr. Sleggs, our Director of Bands, will handle the sign up process for band. 
If you have questions please contact Mr. Sleggs directly at

There will NOT be a fifth grade class performance due to the band schedule.

It will be an exciting year in fifth grade music!

A Note to Band Parents -

Please make the commitment to get involved in our band program at Black River.

Band is for students to learn to play an instrument and to become a part of a worthwhile group that offers great opportunities.  There are many benefits to students who participate in band; responsibility, personal enrichment, future opportunities, strong friendships, academic improvement in many subject areas, etc.

Please become a member of the Band Boosters. This is a group of parents and staff members that support students involved in our band program. It is a wonderful way to make new friends with other parents and support your student at the same time.

Our biggest fund raiser is the concession stand for athletic events. Band students' parents run the stand on Friday night home football games, weeknight games and Saturday morning games. In the spring, this stand is also open for the track season. There are many times that you can volunteer - all you have to do is sign up on the high school band site under the Band Booster tab. Money raised for the concession stand directly supports student participation.  We welcome new members!

So please consider becoming involved! Band Booster meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month in the high school band room at 7:00 p.m. Why not come and see what the Band Boosters are all about?
