Music Program Grades 5-8

Music Program grade 5 to 8_web banner 1200x428.jpg

The Grande Prairie Public School Division recognizes the importance of music education as a part of an innovative academic experience for students. 

Music Program Grades 5-8 will be offered as a Program of Choice beginning in September 2022.  Programming will be offered at:

  • Aspen Grove School, 
  • Derek Taylor Public School,
  • Ecole Montrose, 
  • I.V. Macklin Public School, and 
  • Roy Bickell Public School.  
If your neighbourhood boundary school does not offer a Program of Choice, parents may apply to be enrolled full time at one of the designated Program of Choice schools, students can only be enrolled in one school in the Division. The Division is exploring band, orchestra, and music appreciation courses and is currently working with our staff to finalize offerings at each site.  These decisions will be made in the coming weeks and shared with our school communities. In the next few weeks, the Division will be sharing more detailed program information.


Families enrolling in the Music Program Grades 5-8 will be responsible for transportation.  

Program Fees

There are no Program of Choices fees for this new opportunity; however, there may be music instrument rental fees.


For current GPPSD students, on May 2, 2022 parents will receive an email directed them to the "2022 -2023 Are You Returning? form". On this form parents can indicate that they are interested in the Music Program Grades 5-8. 

If you are new to GPPSD, starting September 2022, complete the 2022-2023 New Student Registration form and indicate that you are interested in one of our Programs of Choice. Schools will then follow up with additional programming information.

If you are new to GPPSD for September 2022 and have already completed your 2022-2023 New Student Registration form, contact the school you registered with and let them know you need to update your form to indicate interest in the Music Program Grade 5-8.
