First, I cannot tell you enough how amazing, creative, resilient and wonderful your children are!

We are making true progress in our efforts to learn music theory and develop our musical vocabulary! Make sure you have the following important dates on your radar:

Google Meets • Attendance • Grades

Google Meets

Our Band classes are meeting every day during their morning specials time! Please make sure your students are making the Google Meets - we are learning how to read music so we can hit the ground running once instruments are distributed!


Attendance is based on attending Google Meets and the completion of Assignments in Google Classroom. If you see an absence, please don't hesitate to communicate with us! We are using a Google Extension that tracks attendance and how long they are on the Meet.


Grades are being entered into Gradebook and should be visible on the Parent Portal. We are accepting late work so if a student has a zero, or M, that means we are missing work. Check out this YouTube video below that will help your students keep their assignments organized:
