These same materials are used in Grades 5 and 6 and should be retained by the student. All new students entering Grades 5 and 6 will receive their musical supplies without paying an additional fee. Fees for returning students in Grades 9, 10, 11, and 12 do not include charges for the WCDS Great 100, the MLA Handbook, or the WCDS Grammar Summary Outline.
