Beginning Band will prepare for and perform concerts for students and families during the school year.

Drama and Beginning Chorus is a yearlong drama and music elective for fifth grade. Students will learn the basics to theatre and how to participate in a performance-based choral ensemble.

Study Halls and Learning Academy:
All fifth grade students will be in a study hall that meets two times in a seven-day rotation. Learning Academy Coaching takes the place of regular study hall rotations and is available for an additional fee. Coaching is designed for students in grades 5-8 to reinforce academic content and skills, test preparation, and organizational methods. If you would like to enroll your student in Learning Academy Coaching instead of regular study halls next year, please contact Kristen Allen for details at kallen@gastonday.org.
