LHS Band Grading Policy (Concert Bands)

posted Sep 2, 2015, 9:16 PM by Alan Kinoshita

This message was also emailed on 9/2/15.

This message is directed to parents/guardians that have children enrolled in a concert band during the school day. This would be Periods 1, 2 or 7.

I know many of you may have received quite a surprise on your child's' mid term report card. I wanted to let you know why they may be receiving the grade they are.

Students do get tested in the band class. These test or any assignment is worth 10% of their grade. The concert performance or final for each quarter is worth 90%. If you child attends the concert they will receive full credit and cannot get less than a 90% for the quarter. 

Until that performance their grades are based on these tests. Most tests can be done in 5-10 seconds. Students may retake a test once per day until the last day of each grading period. If they were absent they can retake a test regardless of being excused or unexcused.

This allows me to make individual checks on each student. By having them come to retake these tests, I can give them individual attention that will improve their musicianship.

For the written tests, all the answers and the tests that they will take are posted on the website.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

Football game clarification

posted Aug 28, 2015, 1:30 PM by Alan Kinoshita

I wanted to make sure that every understands what is happening with football games. 

If we have a home game, then all Marching Band students are required to attend. The band also cleans the stadium at the conclusion of the game. 

If we have an away game, students must follow the away game assignment list. (click on Football Away Game Roster) under Look at these now! 

Due to budget constraints, the band is only allotted funds for 1 bus per game. This means that we can only fit 56 people on the bus. 

Parents that wish to chaperone away games can. They must have a green booster shirt and must follow the bus to the game. You must then enter with the band, no admission cost. 

All practices canceled (8/26/15)

posted Aug 26, 2015, 6:02 PM by Alan Kinoshita

Due to the worsening weather, I have decided to cancel all practices. This isto ensure everyone's safety.
