Week 3: Google Meets • Attendance • Grades!

We've Made it to Week 3!

I wanted to give everyone a bit of a breather - I am sure your inboxes are just as full as ours right now! Now that we are into week three, progress reports are just around the corner. You should be seeing grades populate in Gradebook/ Parent Portal. If there are missing grades, we ARE accepting late work! If you have questions please let us know.

Google Meets • Attendance

All Junior High Bands Meet on Tuesday & Thursday afternoons. We have been using an attendance tracking app that records who was present & how long they were there each day. Google Meet attendance is how students are marked Present: Remote Synchronous. The times for Google Meets are:


1:05 - 1:25: Honors Band

1:55 - 2:15: Symphonic Band

2:50 - 3:10: Concert Band


In order to be marked present on Asynchronous Days (MWF), students will need to complete the short assignments on those days. If a student completes an assignment late, then they will be marked absent for that period that day.

Band Binders • Band Forms

If your student still needs their Band Binder (I think we have tracked most of them down!), please let me know. We can leave it to you at the front desk to pick up during school hours.
