Ms. Peterik and Mrs. Fernsberg
Cancellation of a Rehearsal
We tried to schedule it on that Friday, October 2nd rehearsal, but they were unavailable that day. We are still waiting to hear back on what our options are. We will send out that information as soon as we know anything.
Instrument Covers and Slitted Masks
If a student forgets their mask or cover, they can see us and we can let them borrow one. These borrowed covers or masks will need to be returned at the end of rehearsal so that they can be washed. There were 3 students that came and got these at rehearsal this past Monday, please make sure you return those to us this coming Monday so we can take care of cleaning them.
If a student loses their mask or cover, they will need to pay a replacement fee to keep the new one. You can see these fees below.
Show shirts are in the process of being ordered- we've just hit a few snags in getting them ordered. We will hopefully have them soon.
Grades - from the email sent 9/13 through Skyward
If students are missing assignments, if they are turned in, students can get at least half credit for the assignment, which would be better than no credit. It has been offered many times in class for extra help when students don’t understand, but no one has come to us with questions.
As far as missed rehearsals, if students or parents contact us with the reason why a student missed a rehearsal, it can be changed to not count against the student. Communication is key, especially during this unconventional year.
We don’t really want to give zeros in marching band, but if students aren’t turning in their assignments or communicating about absences, we don’t have a choice. The assignments are meant to keep students accountable for their work in the class, as we’d normally be doing if we were meeting in person every day. Check the Google classroom and Skyward to see missing assignments. If there are problems with assignments or doing them, students need to reach out to the teachers.
