Symphonic Band Update
Nov. 27-Dec. 1
Attire is Formal - tuxedos and dresses. Girls dresses have been given out - they need to be hemmed! Please try to do this by this Friday. I would suggest not cutting off the end of the dress too much so there's room to let it out as they grow. Boys tuxedos have not yet come in... we will update as soon as we know more.
Boys will need to have black dress shoes and long black dress socks with no design or logo - just solid black.
White Elephant Gift Exchange
On the last day of school that we have 3rd period, before Winter Break, we will be having a White Elephant Gift Exchange with Symphonic Band This is completely optional for the kids that want to participate, but most usually do.
- $15 MAX spending amount
- $5 MINIMUM spending amount
- Must be school appropriate
- Do NOT simply find something in your house you no longer want
- No potatoes- That's just weird
- Some thought needs to be put into it... go to 5 and below for ideas
- This should be fun- don't be that kid!
Pass-offs & Goal (Objective) Sheets
Each of these goals (16 in total) are a major grade. The goal sheet is due completed on Friday, Dec. 8.
Current Sectional Schedule
Due to the changes in athletic schedules, we have made some changes to the sectional schedule.
This will be semi-permanent - until we find a need to change again.
Practice Records are 20% of the student's 9 weeks grade.
Sectional Attendance are 30% of the student's 9 weeks grade.
Major Grades (the majority of which are pass-offs) are 50% of the student's 9 weeks grade.
