Band of Knights

Back to School 2020

Welcome back! I am excited to teach your child this fall! As a district, state, and nation, we are going through an unprecedented time with many changes that affect teaching, learning, and life.

My goal is to help your child experience a quality music education where they will learn musical literacy while developing their critical thinking and problem solving skills. Music should be a fun and rewarding experience, and I am glad to have your child in my class.

The format of instruction will look different for now, and I will have a short video explaining these changes soon. I will be relying on Google Classroom to deliver instruction and assessments to students, so please write down your child's google classroom code and join the classroom as soon as possible.

Please feel free to contact me at alexpowell@burke.k12.nc.us with questions or concerns.

Thank you!

Mr. Powell
