CONCERTS ON TUESDAY DECEMBER 18 and THURSDAY APRIL 25th

The Southeast Polk 5th Grade Band program consists of students from all eight elementary schools in the district. The bands are taught by two band directors, Chad Criswell and Carissa Stout. Students receive a 20-25 minute small group lesson each week and a 50-60 minute large group rehearsal each week, both of which are provided during the normal school day. There are two large group concerts each year, held in the evenings at the Southeast Polk High School auditorium.

Students rent or purchase their own instruments and lesson books to participate in the program with the exception of the larger instruments such as tubas, baritones, and french horns and those who request assistance from the Band For All program.


  • Copies of the band information letters, rental agreements, etc. are found on the Documents page of this site.
  • Contact Information for the 5th grade band directors is available here.
