NEW DAILY BAND SCHEDULE FOR THE 2017-2018 SCHOOL YEAR!

...............................4th GRADE BAND.......................................

We will begin the 15 minute band lessons next week. Your students will need to bring their instruments, band books and practice charts to lesson each time we meet. (If your student has not received their band book, they will receive their band book at their first lesson.) I have attached the band schedule to this email. 

2:45 and 3:00 LESSON GROUPS:
We had a large number of students that signed up for the 3:00 time slot.  Because of the large number of students signed up for these times, those students will receive lessons EVERY OTHER WEEK.  I have labeled these students as "Group A" or "Group B" on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  I have tried to make this less confusing by writing down the dates in which those students would attend lessons.  If you have any questions about these times, please let me know and I will help you out!

LUNCH/RECESS GROUP LESSONS:
For those students that have lunch lessons, you will come to the band room as soon as you are dismissed for lunch.  If you you BUYING your lunch, stop at the cafeteria before you come to the band room to get your lunch.  If you are bringing a SACK lunch, come straight to the band room.  There will be a table in the back of the room for you eat your lunch at.  Be sure to bring your instrument.  If you have a game that you want to bring, you may do so.  I will have movies and karaoke set up to keep you busy while we take turn having lessons.

PULLED FROM AN ACADEMIC CLASS FOR LESSONS:
If you are pulled from an academic class for lessons, your class work will be monitored by your teacher.  It is very rare that band students have trouble keeping up in class during band lesson time.  However, if it does become a challenge in the classroom, your teacher will contact me and let me know that we need to change your lesson time.

STILL WANT TO SIGN UP FOR EXTRA 15 MINUTE LESSONS?

ALL STUDENTS TAKING 15 MINUTE LESSONS WILL NEED TO TURN IN A SIGNED PRACTICE CHART EACH WEEK WHEN THEY ARRIVE TO LESSONS.  If the practice chart is consistently not completed or not signed by a parent, the student will be dismissed from 15 minute lessons.  Students will also be dismissed if they are not attending their lessons regularly because they have forgotten their instrument or have forgotten to come to the band room. (Many students have had success by purchasing watches with alarms and then setting the alarm to go off 5 minutes before their lesson time.  If you choose this method, please be sure to show your kiddo how to turn off the alarm so it does not distract the class.) If a student has been dismissed from lessons, they can sign up for lessons during the following quarter (grading period), provided that there is a slot available.  If there is not a time slot available, they will be put on a waiting list.



.........................5th, 6th, 7th and 8th GRADE BAND..........................
During the 2018-2019 school year, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade band will take place during LAB every Tuesday and Thursday throughout the school year.   All Middle School Band Students are expected to attend a 15 minute lesson that will occur during their encore time once a week.

Rehearsals are every Monday and Thursday from 7:30AM-8:00AM. 

...............................................ROCK BAND..........................................................
Rehearsals are every Wednesday and Friday from 7:30AM-8:00AM.
