4th Grade Families:
Welcome to the RFIS Music Program!
At the end of April, each 4th grade student in the district will view a demonstration video about opportunities to play an instrument and sing at RFIS!
At our school, we believe:
- Being part of the music program is fun - music brings joy!
- Learning an instrument and singing instill life skills like self-awareness, discipline, cooperation, responsibility, and pride in hard work.
- Being part of the music program creates camaraderie and friendship.
- Being part of the music program requires commitment and helps students discover their own ability to persevere through hardships. NOTE: Once registrations are submitted, changes to students’ music schedules will not be considered until after the first concert in January.

This year, all 4th grade parents, received a school messenger message containing a Google Classroom Code to join our RFIS Music Registration Google Classroom. This Google Classroom contains all of the information and documents students and their families need to learn about our program.
