19-20 School Year Registration Info


Here are a few registration details for our incoming 2019-20 students.  If you have any questions, please call the counseling office at 763-241-3445.


6th grade

Meadowvale and Lincoln 5th grade students are automatically enrolled at VandenBerge.  Please call the VandenBerge counseling office if your student will attend VandenBerge but is not from one of these elementary schools or if your Meadowvale/Lincoln student plans to attend a different school.


6th graders choose an elective for days opposite of PE.  They will be able to choose Band, Choir, Band/Choir Combo or General Music.


February 21, 2019 - Students from Meadowvale and Lincoln will come to VandenBerge during the school day for a band/choir recruitment concert.  Registration materials will be sent home with students and a Campus Messenger will be sent with a link to register for their music elective.


For students who choose band, there will be Band Exploration Nights in late April/early May and Instrument Display Night in early to mid May.  These dates will be provided in the registration materials and you will select a Band Exploration Night to attend when registering for Band.


May 9, 2019, 6:00 to 7:30 - Preview Night for Incoming 6th graders takes place at VandenBerge.  This is a night for parents and students to come and learn more about VandenBerge.


There will be August band lessons for students to get a head start on their instruments.  Details about this will come from our band teacher, Mrs. Klingelhofer.


WEB (Where Everyone Belongs) typically takes place during the 2nd to last week of August.  This is a full morning for 6th graders to spend time at the school with WEB leaders (8th grade students) where they will work on their lockers, become familiar with the school, and start to settle in.  Then, there is an Open House on the same day (typically from 6:00 - 7:00 pm) for 6th graders and new 7th/8th grade students to come back in with their parents. 


7th grade

Registration for Band, Choir, or Study Hall takes place towards the end of January into early February each year.  Notification happens via Campus Messenger and current year electives are "rolled" into the next school year (band to band, choir to choir, general music to study hall).  Students/parents notify us directly if the student wants to change their 7th grade elective.


8th grade

Registration for elective classes in the areas of Art, Industrial Tech, Family and Consumer Science, World Language, and Band/Choir/Study Hall takes place around mid-January each year.  Notification happens via Campus Messenger and registration is completed by students or parents via Campus Portal.
