Getting Ready for the Year

Note: if you have an issue getting registered for the right band class at Summit, please contact Mr. Ottum ASAP via email:

Please fill out the Student Information Survey for 2020-2021 if you have not already! This survey will help us prepare for the school year and get materials and school instruments to those who need them.

After you've filled out the survey, check out the class materials lists below.

Required Class Materials

Updated for Fall 2020



Canvas is the district-wide "Learning Management System" that will serve as the primary point of contact between students and teachers this year, especially during distance learning. Students will automatically be added to classes on Canvas, and parents have the option of adding themselves as observers on Canvas.

Remind is a school communication tool that the band program uses to communicate with specific classes/ensembles for important notices, events, and trips. Basically, Remind is a way to send mass text message announcements out to students, but it can also be used to send messages to a teacher or coach. Mr. Ottum administers all Remind groups for Summit Bands, and parents are welcome to receive Remind notifications from any Summit Bands group. For more on how Remind works, see their FAQ. Students will get 2020 Remind codes after classes begin.

The BAND app is a group communication tool which will be used for certain groups within the band program like Band Council, Drumline Club, and possibly other ensembles. Students will get group codes for BAND individually if they are in a group that uses it.
