Attention all 6th grade parents and students,
It’s not too late to join the band and choir at Pfeiffer for this school year. You do not need to have any prior musical experience to join these groups. This is a great opportunity to explore playing a musical instrument and singing in a full choir. Students are able to do Band only, Choir only, or participate in both ensembles.

Please watch these informational videos about each group…

As you can see, these are two very exciting groups to be in at Pfeiffer. If you would like to be signed up for these classes, please follow the Google Forms link and submit it by FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 11th, 2020. Or return the form your child received at the assembly on Monday the 28th to their homeroom teacher. 


On behalf of Ms. Morris (choir director) and Mr. Sterling (band diretor), we hope you will consider joining band and/or choir.
