Schedule:

Classes will meet every other day(!!!!!!!!!!!!) (this is very exciting FYI). Band classes are all A day classes and Orchestra classes are all B day classes. During the week you may leave your instrument in your assigned locker/shelf but you should take it home to practice over the weekend! There will also be group lessons during the TEAM ENRICHMENT block that are part of your grade. Each section should get one lesson every 6 - 8 weeks. The schedule for group lessons will be sent out each month and reminders will be sent out each week to the students who have upcoming lessons. Groups have not yet been determined and will be done by the end of the first week of school.


Classroom Expectations:

  1. Respect others and the instruments.

  2. Be responsible and prepared.

  3. Be on time.

  4. Everyone MUST participate 100%!


Every day when you come into rehearsal you will have 5 minutes from the scheduled start of the period to be in your seat with your instrument fully set up and with all of the materials you need for class that day.There will be a daily activity that needs to be accomplished that day during the 5 minutes as well. Failure to set up on time will result in losing a point off of your daily participation grade.


Grading:


Daily Participation Grades are worth 4 points.

1 - Instrument

2 - Preparedness (binder, music, pencil, book, etc.)

3 - On time (setup and working on/done with daily activity after first 5 minutes)

4 - Good behavior (safe, respectful, responsible)


There will also be grades for various assignments during each trimester including music reading work, binder checks, and achievement assessments (which will be explained during class). The concerts are both mandatory and are Major Assessments. The winter concert is Thursday, 12/14/17 and the Spring Concert is Thursday 6/14/18. Please mark the dates!
