5th Grade Orchestra: The MCIS 5th grade orchestra members will meet in three separate class periods. Classes will take place during their CCR time. Although we rehearse separately, ALL 5th grade classes will perform together on the concert. Students will be assessed on a regular basis and will receive a Satisfactory or Unsatisfactory rather than a letter grade.
6th Grade Orchestra: The MCIS 6th grade orchestra will meet in three separate class periods but will perform concerts together. Classes will also take place during CCR time. This group consists of students with one year of experience, and will therefore perform at Assessment this year. Students in 6th grade will be graded according to the system outlined in the 6th Grade Orchestra Handbook in order to best prepare them for the more advanced skills and music they will encounter in middle school.
