Patrick Marsh Middle School Band
Schedule & Material Pick-up Updates and More! (v. 8.28.20)
Bringing Things Into Focus
Thank you Patrick Marsh Band Families as we continue to bring things "into focus" for the upcoming year. We have a few important updates below regarding a modification to your student's schedule as well as information about the upcoming material pick-up days. As always, reach out if you have any questions or concerns!
Band Schedule & Lessons Change
If your child is in two music classes, see the scenarios below:
IF a student is in Choir & Band they will do Choir on A days and Band on B days**
IF a student is in Choir & Orchestra they will do Choir on A days and Orch on B days**
IF a student is in Band & Orchestra they will do Band on A days and Orch on B days**
**Remember - A Days will always be Monday, Thursday, B Days will always be Tuesday, Friday
Students will meet with us for band during their elective time on the schedule (we may not always keep them online synchronously during the 35 minutes available, but we will meet.) We will also schedule individual 15-minute weekly lesson times with your children. Some students will be schedule right out of the elective time provided and others will have a lesson between 1:30-3:30 pm Mon-Friday, or in the morning on Wednesday.
We will begin assigning lesson times soon and will share it with you in order to make adjustments, etc.
This is really GREAT news. We are very thankful to the administration for making this change. We will now be able to see your children consistently throughout the week while opening up lesson times that will not conflict with other classes.
