Good Morning!

EBOP Registration is in full swing!  It's not too late to sign up your child.  If you've already done so, thank you very much!  I am posting some general information below, but please let us know if you have any other questions.   And please tell all of your friends who may not be familiar with this fantastic program.

We invite you to join EBOP! The Elementary Band and Orchestra Program (EBOP) is offered to 4th, 5th and 6th graders who attend school within HRHS Feeder Schools.

It’s more than music!  Learning to play a musical instrument helps students become team players, increases self-discipline, make friends, learn respect for the arts, and enhance their academic performance.
