The general late work policy for Scoggins Middle School is provided to promote student responsibility and consistency throughout the building. For regular daily and weekly assignments, students may receive a grade no higher than a 70 for work turned in one day late. If work is turned in two days late, the highest grade a student may receive is a 60. After two days, and up to one week after the assignment was due, the maximum grade a student may earn is a 50. After one week, the student may receive a zero for a missing assignment.
Booster Meeting-Please consider attending!
The Scoggins Middle School Band Booster is looking for people for next year’s Board. We need a President, a Treasurer ( a financial background is very helpful), someone to coordinate chaperones and volunteers, a Secretary, someone to handle spirit wear and someone for hospitality.
For the most part these are very easy jobs with a 45 minute meeting once a month and an additional hour or two commitment a month. (Our Treasurer usually works 4-6 hours a month, but may climb to 8-10 hours a month for fundraising or startup). This is a wonderful opportunity to be involved and informed! If you are interested in any position please reach out to Mr. Davis and plan to be in attendance at our booster meeting on Wednesday, May 16th at 6pm in the band hall.

Summer Band Camps
If you would like for your student to know a familiar face at band camp Mr. Davis will be teaching this year at the West Texas A&M Band Camp in Canyon, Texas. This is a 2 week camp and is a GREAT time. Mrs. Bulloch who has been visiting us monthly is also on staff at this camp.
