5th Grade Music
Every year, Kegonsa's 4th and 5th grade students play recorder as a required part of their music class. Please fill out the linked form by 9/22/22 and pay the fee (if applicable) in Infinite Campus. Recorders will be delivered to students in their music class.
This year, our school will celebrate Veterans Day in an all-school assembly on Friday, November 11 at 7:50 a.m. Our students will sing the Peace Round and the National Anthem and will observe two minutes of silence. 5th grade students may audition for a place leading the school in singing - see Mrs. Benson if you are interested! Red, white, and blue clothing is encouraged for all students on that day. Family members who have served or are serving our country are encouraged to attend (in uniform if possible) so we can honor your service! Click here for more information about this special day.

Middle School Visits & Instrument Testing
In November and December, there are a few special musical events just for 5th graders! First, River Bluff Middle School Band, Chorus, and Orchestra members will come to visit our 5th graders to give them a small performance. Then, our 5th graders will have an opportunity to try out any instrument in the entire band or orchestra! All students are given this opportunity so that they can better understand which instruments might be good choices for them should they choose to join an ensemble at River Bluff in the fall of their 6th grade year.
5th Grade Concert
Every year, 5th Grade students work together to produce their own concert. Students pick the theme, the songs, the art, the movements, and the props. Students should start thinking about ideas that are school-appropriate and can involve everyone!
WSTO TV Recordings
IMPORTANT NOTICE: WSTO TV will be filming Kegonsa's 1st Grade through 5th Grade concerts and placing the footage on Charter Channel 98, Digital TV Channel 981, and their website. Families can even purchase a professional DVD of the concert from WSTO. However, if you marked "withhold all" or "withhold some" information on your child's school registration form, they will not be able to be filmed as the school district needs permission to have your child's image shown on TV. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Benson.
