Google Classroom

Please continue posting your pass off videos on Google Classroom. The end of the six weeks will be here faster than you think!


Students with SmartMusic are encouraged to follow along in our Standard of Excellence book at home by playing lines with the accompaniment and fingering with the demonstration instrument. Take advantage of this tool!

Directors Out Next Week

Next Thursday, and Friday the directors will be out in order to attend the Texas Music Educators Clinic/Convention in San Antonio. Classes will proceed as normal and students will be playing. This convention is always an inspiring event that we are lucky to have in our home state. We look forward to bringing new ideas back to the band hall to continue to help our students excel.

No before or after school practice will be allowed on these days as supervision is not available. The Band Hall will also be closed for Target Time practice.

Target Time Passes

As you know, every Tuesday and Thursday we have Target Time at Scoggins. Many students have elected to come to the band hall to practice. This is fantastic! However we wanted to relay the new policy regarding Target Time for All Band Students.

Tuesday-There are a limited number of passes available for Target Time. These passes MUST be asked for prior to Tuesday. Passes will be given out at directors discretion.

Thursday-No passes will be given for Thursday. This day is for our lesson staff as well as director follow ups as necessary.

Please remember that once in a practice room the expectation is that you will stay in that practice room until the 3 minutes to the end of Target Time. This will allow time for instrument pack up. Students are not allowed to leave early.

Sectional Schedule

Due to TMEA we will have a modified Sectional Schedule:

Monday 3:45-4:30 Woodwinds (this is normal)

Tuesday 3:45-4:30 ALL Brass (Trumpet, Horn, and Low Brass)
