Beginner Band Instrument Distribution

We are so excited that schedule changes are being finalized and that students are being placed in the correct band class periods based on their instrument choice selections. With that being said and done, we are currently in the process of preparing instruments, as well as supplies for our new students to be distributed in the next couple of weeks. We will be sending out information to beginner band parents as soon as all of the details for distribution have been finalized and approved by our administration.

We want to thank you and your students for your patience, as this is a major undertaking, especially in the virtual learning setting. There is still plenty of learning taking place and cannot wait to be able to make music with all of our beginning band students!

Beginner Class Schedule Changes

Some of you may have noticed that your child's schedule may have changed in the last few days. We are making changes to accommodate their instrument preference in order to have classes with like instruments. This may cause them to have multiple classes of the same subject in their Google Classroom. Please be patient as we transition them from one period to the next and remove them from their old class and adjust their grades.

We understand there may be some confusion with Zoom schedules as well, but have no fear, all teachers are being made aware of schedule changes as they are taking place, so we will do everything in our power to ensure that every student is able to have a successful transition to their new classes. Once again, we thank you for your patience and understanding.

Daily Attendance

Please make sure that your child is completing the Daily Check In form every day. This form is utilized for campus attendance. You can locate the form using the link below.

Checking grades on Google Classroom

Please view the video below to learn how to check your child's band grades on Google Classroom. If there is an assignment that your student received a failing grade on that they would like to redo, please have them post a message on their assignment in Google Classroom.
