Concert Dates for 2018-2019

The Concerts are graded events. The concert grade is 30% of the student's total grade for the class. Attendance is mandatory at all concerts. If a student misses a concert, it is the responsibility of the student and parent to contact Mr. Bushkovski and let him know why the student was not at the concert. Medical Emergencies and doctor-verified illness are the only reasons a student will be excused from the concert. The student must make up the concert by creating a video of themselves playing the concert music. This must be shared with Mr. Bushkovski through Google Drive and must be completed according to district policy, for example, one day absent, one day extra to record the video.

If there is no parent contact, there is no grade and no makeup.
