C-Heights Band Update

October 5, 2020

C-Heights Jazz - Update & Reminder

Jazz is open to ALL band students & instruments - now is a great time to start. At this point, there will be no auditioned or separated groups.

UPDATE - we are looking at rehearsing:

  • Mondays 3 - 3:45pm
  • Thursday 7 - 7:45am
  • And a possible 3rd Option
*NOTE - not all students will be able to make every rehearsal, that's okay - even 1x/week is great.

If you haven't already and are interested, please complete this survey.

Please reach out to Mr. Melrose or Mrs. Diallo if you have any questions!

Virtual Private Lessons

For students that are interested in taking private lessons for enrichment and extra help from a professional musician, please consider reaching out to our list of fantastic professional musicians. These are a group of people that are connected to Sun Prairie in various ways - some are alumni! Whether you participated in last year's "Band Lesson Academy" or your looking for more - please check out this fantastic resource!



Mrs. Diallo and Mr. Melrose are current with all of their grading as of today, Sept. 29 at 2:30 PM. PLEASE check your child's grades via Infinite Campus. Here's a link to the Infinite Campus Parent Portal. Want notifications on your phone when things are put into the gradebook for your child? Choose the option to leave yourself logged in and notifications will arrive anytime something is posted for your child. Please reach out to either Mrs. Diallo or Mr. Melrose with any questions about grades!

SPECIAL NOTE: The first quarter ends on November 6. At that time, students will earn a semester's worth of credit. This is new for our 9th graders since they are used to having the semester end in January.
