INFORMATION FOR NEW STUDENTS

Welcome to Kinard Middle School's Orchestra Program!

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and to thank you for choosing Kinard Core Knowledge as your Middle School! Here at Kinard we are very proud of our Music program and we value Music as one of the Core Subjects taught at our school. All students entering 6th grade at Kinard will participate in either Choir, Band, or Orchestra for the full year. This page is designed to give students planning to attend Kinard next year more information about the Orchestra program. Please do not hesitate to contact me, Mrs. Griffey, if you have any further questions about the Orchestra program. I look forward to meeting you soon!

 - Mrs. Leanne M. Griffey, Orchestra Director
