    Welcome to band!  Our classes are part of the school electives as part of your regular school class schedule.  You don't even have to leave school and we get to meet every day!  The requirements for the different classes are under "Band Classes" (click on "Pages" at the top).  Please email me at rcopsey@pleasantvalleysd.org if you have any questions or stop by the Band Room D7 after school.


    You may drop off your instruments in the Band Room D7 before school from 8:15- 8:30 am (school starts at 8:30 am). Pick up your instruments right after school at 3:05 pm. Please email Mr. Copsey or stop by the Band Room D7 right after school if you have any questions.


            --  Band Instruments may be available to borrow from the school district, based on financial need. If you are interested, please fill out this request form  Instrument Request Form  or get a copy from me in class and bring it back to band class as soon as possible.  We will begin playing instruments as soon as almost everyone has an instrument - within the next few days.
