Help us Grow the Band!
If you know of parents of a 5th grade student, then talk to them about band!
We are the largest middle school band in the district, and we want to continue growing our program. A bigger, better 6th grade band means a bigger, better Cain band AND RHHS band as well!
Also, if your child is on the fence about staying in band, please have them talk to a band director. We want to make sure we exhaust every opportunity for your child to continue in the band program.
Want to hear from ACTUAL Cain Band students? Check out the video below! It is geared more for 5th grade students, but there are a lot of great responses about middle school band, too!
