Welcome and Information Letter  

The letter, linked below, offers a good overview of the KPS Music programs for grades 6-12 although it is not meant to be the definitive answer to everything. If you have questions which are school and program related, please contact our director, Craig Chissus, at 231 258-4040 or by email at cchissus@kpschools.com. Anything Boosters related may be directed to Deb Ball-Odeh, contact info given above.

At the bottom of this welcome and info letter is a page solely to inform our music families about the volunteer opportunities available within the school year. It is expected that each band family will do what they are able to help. We realize for some, that may mean one commitment and for some, they are able to help all the time. If everyone gives the time they are able, and not always depend on others to do the helping, we all will be able to enjoy this experience more.  

Thank you for taking the time to read through this and please continue on to the
