Parent Volunteer Opportunities!
All fifth grade students may participate in the Highland Elementary band. Students will register and begin instruction during the spring and summer of fourth grade. The purpose of the instrumental music program at Highland is to develop fundamental skills and to instill an enjoyment of making music.
Please visit our Band Website!
Individual questions regarding any of the policies and practices should be addressed to Anja Firchow at 651-683-6969, voicemail #92319, or through email at
District 196 Band For All Program: "Make good use of an unused band instrument!"
Do you have an instrument you no longer use? Please consider donating your gently used instrument to the District 196 Band For All program. More than 300 students in our district who could not afford a band instrument are able to play in band this year because of these donations. Although we can use all band instruments we are always in need of more flutes and clarinets. Please bring your instrument with your name, address and phone number to Oak Ridge Elementary (4350 Johnny Cake Ridge Road, Eagan). Your donation is tax deductible and you will receive a gift letter for tax purposes for your donation. For more information or to make alternate arrangements for a donation, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
