Payson Jr. High students came to our school on Wednesday to show the 6th-graders how much fun it is to be in band and orchestra. As the classes entered the gym, the Jazz Band was rockin' !!! It was fun to see that many of the students performing had been students here at Santaquin Elementary.
Parents who have students who are interested in joining the band or orchestra need to attend a meeting Tuesday, April 23, at 7:00pm at the PJHS. That's the same day as the 6th-grade Hershey Track so it should be easy to remember.
There are many reasons to learn to play an instrument, for example, a ten-year study shows that students who study music achieve higher test scores, and have fewer discipline problems.
