Looking for information about joining band or orchestra? Read below and click on the links to the left.

Join Band or Orchestra!
Check out the Join Band or Orchestra page and come to the Instrumental Music Information and Rental Night at Summit Ridge Middle School on Wednesday, September 6th! There will be an informational meeting from 6:30 PM to 7:15 PM in the cafeteria on the west side of the school. All students who have not done band/orchestra at your school should come to this. Families will then head to the gym and will have the opportunity to try instruments and rent an instrument that night! If you cannot attend, please email Mrs. Welch at Carrie.Welch@jeffco.k12.co.us.

More Information
Please check out the FAQ link and you can find the Handbook and lots of useful information in the "Handouts" section. I will be sending home information at the beginning of the year in Friday Folders. Please check back on this website for more info as well. Beginning classes will start the first day your school has class after the Info Night. Do not send students with instruments the first day, but they will need them on the second day.

Advanced Band and Orchestra
Has your student already played a band or orchestra instrument for one year, or had class with Mrs. Welch (Green) last year? You are in advanced band/orchestra! Classes will start after Labor Day. Bring your instrument the first day and be ready to play!

Register for Class
To register for band or orchestra, please click HERE! All band and orchestra students, new or returning, need to fill out this form.

Ms. Green is now Mrs. Welch!
When you see info with Mrs. Welch's new name on it, please don't be confused. I am still the teacher for the Dakota Ridge Area Elementary Schools! My new email address is Carrie.Welch@jeffco.k12.co.us.
