• BOY SCOUTS
    The Boy Scouts of America provides youth with programs and activities that allow them to

    • Try new things.
    • Provide service to others.
    • Build self-confidence.
    • Reinforce ethical standards.

    While various activities and youth groups teach basic skills and promote teamwork, Scouting goes beyond that and encourages youth to achieve a deeper appreciation for service to others in their community.

    Scouting provides youth with a sense that they are important as individuals. It is communicated to them that those in the Scouting family care about what happens to them, regardless of whether a game is won or lost.

    Finally, and perhaps most importantly, Scouting promotes activities that lead to personal responsibility and high self-esteem. As a result, when hard decisions have to be made, peer pressure can be resisted and the right choices can be made.

     Groups meet 2-3 times per month on Wednesday’s. They have a monthly meeting third Wednesday of each month @ the Fraser Lions Club.

    ELEMENTARY BAND
    5th-grade Introduction to Instrumental Music
    For our 5th grade students, a unit called Introduction to Instrumental Music occurs during the first 7 weeks of the school year. Every 5th grader in the district receives this instruction. During this time, students will learn how to play the song flute, as well as review and apply many of the skills they have learned in their vocal music class. They learn new skills in areas such as note recognition, reading and counting rhythms, tone production, tempo, pulse, etc. This 7-week unit concludes with a concert. After the Song Flute Concert, students may elect to continue in the program by joining the 5th-grade Beginning Band. There will be an Instrument Rental Night immediately following the concert.

    5th Grade Beginning Band 
    In 5th grade, beginning band is an optional program. Students can continue in the instrumental music program on a variety of band instruments. For our band program to provide the best possible learning scenario for every student, the balance of instrumentation must be addressed. Any student may choose to play the following instruments in 5th-grade band: flute, clarinet, alto saxophone, trumpet or trombone. Students interested in playing percussion will be selected through an audition process, as these spots are limited within the ensemble. Those chosen to play percussion are required to have a “bell kit” for both 5th and 6th-grade band. Students who decide to continue in the band program must obtain an instrument on their own. They are also required to have a music stand and a band book (the "Essential Elements" method book). 

    Information on obtaining an instrument for the band will be provided during the song flute portion of the school year. Additional information can always be obtained by emailing the band instructor at your child’s school. 

    There are two (2) band concerts required for 5th grade beginning band students: one in January and one in May. There are no other after school requirements, other than regular “at-home” practice. 

    6th Grade Band is a continuation of the study of instrumental music. The students have the same requirements in regards to instruments as 5th Grade Band. There are some additional after school requirements needed to increase the level of performance and achievement during the year. 

    Students who are new to the district may learn an instrument in 6th grade. It is strongly recommended that those students also see a private tutor to help catch them up. 

    There will be two (2) concerts required for the 6th-grade band: one during the winter and one in the spring (see Elementary School Band Handbook- Schedule of Events). Information regarding any extra rehearsals will be sent home and posted on this web page. Attendance at any non-schedule event will be voluntary.

    6th Grade Band
    6th Grade Band is a continuation of the study of instrumental music. The students have the same requirements in regards to instruments as 5th Grade Band. The expectations of 6th-graders become more rigorous, as the music becomes more complex, and requires the students to learn more on their own. At-home practice is a necessity.

    Students who are new to the district may learn an instrument in 6th grade. It is strongly recommended that those students also see a private tutor to help catch them up. 

    There will be two (2) concerts required for the 6th-grade band: one in January and one in May. There are no other after school requirements, other than regular “at-home” practice. 


    Private Lessons/Band Tutors
    Information regarding lessons is available from the band teacher. Lessons are not required but are highly recommended. Private instruction greatly enhances a child’s learning. The individualized instruction can help guide a student in any areas of weakness, and the tutor can give instrument-specific strategies to improve elements of a student's playing. Many band members from Fraser High School will tutor 5th and 6th-grade band students or you can choose from several professional teachers as well. 

    Book Requirements 
    All 5th and 6th-grade band students use “Essential Elements" for their instruction. These books can be obtained at most of the local music stores. Each student must have their own book specific to his or her instrument. This book must be brought to school along with the instrument and folding music stand for each class session ( see Elementary School Band Handbook- Weekly Band Schedule).

    GIRL SCOUTS
    At Girl Scouts, you’re going to have tons of fun, make new friends, and go on fantastic new adventures.

    You’re also going to get the chance to do big things. Our program centers on something called the Girl Scout Leadership Experience—a collection of activities and experiences you’ll have as you earn badges, sell cookies, go on exciting trips, explore the outdoors, do Take Action projects that make a difference, and more.

    Put simply, in Girl Scouts you will:  Discover. You’ll find out who you are, what you care about, and what your talents are. Connect. Collaborate with other people, locally and globally, to make a difference in the world. Take Action. Do something to make the world a better place. 

    With Girl Scouts, you’ll do more than you ever thought you could, dream bigger dreams than you ever imagined, and — oh, yeah — change the world. Bet you didn’t think rock climbing or selling cookies would help you do all that, did you?

    YOUNG REMBRANTS
    Eating broccoli may not sound appetizing to some. But, in a Young Rembrandts cartoon class, we will surely chuckle and enjoy creating a sequence of drawings featuring a very funny character eating veggies. The never-ending rivalry rages on when we draw cats and dogs hilariously settling disputes. Weirder is definitely better and we will not be able to contain the laughter as we draw unusual pets putting the pedal to the metal as they race to the finish line in our cartoon car expressions drawings. YR students will have so much fun drawing cartoons while enhancing creative and critical thinking skills today’s students need in the classroom and in the life-long learning process. Enroll today!

    Ages 6-12
