Assessments: 

Lessons: 

Each student receives a weekly group lesson in addition to their regularly scheduled band time. Please take a look at the link below to see lesson groups and times for third quarter lessons. Please note: the only reason you should skip a lesson is due to taking a summative assessment in the class you are scheduled to be in.

 

Practice Charts:

All students are asked to complete 70 minutes of practice weekly. If you are missing a practice chart, please fill out the sample chart below for credit that you missed. This will be your ticket to retake assessments that did not go as well as planned.
