WELCOME BACK!

Welcome back to EBOP!

We have been working very hard on the logistics for this school year.

As many of you know, Beginning EBOP will now be available at the
Elementary school you attend before the regular school day begins!

Advanced EBOP will still meet at Highlands Ranch High School
in the morning and ride the bus to elementary school after class.

All next week, our EBOP staff will be attending an assembly at each of
the seven feeder elementary schools to raise excitement and hand out flyers.

Our Instrument Rental Night will be:
Thursday, August 31, 2017
6:00pm to 7:00pm
at Highlands Ranch High School
in the Lower Gym

If you have not registered yet, please click on the Registration tab.
Right now, the cost will be $325 until August 31st. After the
Instrument Rental Night, the price will increase to $350. (Payments
will be collected beginning on and after the Instrument Rental Night
and the amount due will be determined by the time stamp on your
registration)

We know many of you are inquiring about the schedule. We are in the 
final phase of confirming dates/times/classrooms at each elementary.
We hope to have the schedule within the week and will post it as soon
as it is ready.

Please check back soon for schedule/classroom location/teacher at each
school and information on our new ONLINE PAYMENT SYSTEM!

We are excited to see the students again and can't wait to hear how they
have progressed over the summer!

Final Information for 16-17 School Year


Thursday, May 4th - 
All EBOP Students should be present by 7:15 am for Certificates and Donuts. Students only please and they do not need to bring their instruments. This event is very casual. Here at HRHS we have AP Exams going on in the Performing Arts Classrooms, so space is very limited. If you choose to attend with your child, please understand there will be standing room only. This is the last day of EBOP for this school year, congratulations!

End of Year Instrument Try Out for next school year is May 9 from 5 PM to 7 PM. Designed for new students to help select their instrument. Current EBOP students do not need to attend unless you are considering a different instrument for next year. Unfortunately, the music representatives will NOT be set up to handle instrument returns at this event. Our hope is that you hold on to your instrument over the summer to practice or attend private lessons. If you must return your instrument, please contact the company you rented from and make arrangements.

Don't forget to register for next year!

Thank you for sharing your children with us! Have a safe and wonderful summer!
