Rising 6th Grader Information

Please visit Renfroepta.org to learn a little about what your Renfroe PTA supports! There are many ways to get involved, please use this form to indicate interests. Feel free to contact ptarenfroe@gmail.com with any questions, concerns or to connect with a current RMS parent. Thank you!

 

Rising 6th Grade Parent Webinar: Join us Tuesday, May 4th at 6:30 PM for a presentation of what 6th grade is like, and to get your questions answered. Here is the link. This presentation will be recorded and available for any families who cannot attend the live session.

 

World Language: Beginning in the 6th grade, students have the choice of taking Spanish, French, or German. Students will learn communication skills in regards to the Self, Family, Food, School Day and Community. Please have the conversation with your child now about their choice for World Language. In the next week or two, all rising 6th graders will complete a google form in school indicating their choice. RMS administration will confirm all student choices via email over the summer. Questions about World Language? Email Kelsey Ulm, Department Chair, at kulm@csdecatur.net

 

Band, Chorus, and Orchestra: Renfroe has an amazing music department! Band, Chorus and Orchestra are different from the other connections classes we offer in that taking them is a full year commitment, rather than a 12-week course. Students must sign up for these classes, as they are not assigned. Students registering for these classes do not have to have prior music training or know how to read music. There will be an instrument selection period at the beginning of the year, so Band and Orchestra students can make decisions about what instrument they like and play the best.


For questions and to sign up for either Band, Chorus, or Orchestra, use the links below:

Chorus: dhirschorn@csdecatur.net LINK to the Chorus Registration website

Orchestra: hmccranie@csdecatur.net LINK to the Orchestra Registration & website

 

If that’s not enough, the music department will host its own webinar on Wednesday, May 12th at 6:30 PM to answer any questions you may have. Here’s the link.
