Practice Reports (5th & 6th Grade Band Students)

Each week band students in 5th & 6th Grades need to log 60 minutes of practice outside of the school day. Students are given "practice reports" each Wednesday to log this information. Then they are required to get a parent/ guardian to sign the report. The student is then to return it to school the following Wednesday for a daily grade. Please help these students remember to practice! Practice makes perfect!
