Band is part of the curriculum.  Band is open to any students in grades 5-8! Band offers students the opportunity to learn to read music and play an instrument in a band setting. We have three bands, the 5th graders are in Junior Band, the 6th graders are in Mezzo Band, and our 7th and 8th grade members combine to form our Senior Band.  The SKDS Marching Band (grades 4-8) participates in the Beaver Dam Memorial Day parade and the Columbus 4th of July parade. In addition to band class, students have small group lessons every two weeks.  When in middle school, students may join Jazz Band on Wednesdays after school.
