7th & 8th Grade Band

Dear Parents,

 

The Winter Concert was great!!!  Thanks for everyone’s efforts and thanks parents for encouraging your children to practice and get prepared!!!!

 

I’ve decided to scrap the practice journals this nine weeks and rely on student performance tests for grades.  Students were given a section of music when we got back from our break.  They were given a date and are expected to record this music in class on their assigned day.  I will listen to the recording after school and assign grades.  A new section will be assigned for the next week.

 

I am hoping that students will begin to practice more.  We have a lot of work to do before band assessment in March.  Possible snow days could put us behind so everyone needs to dig in and do a great job.

 

I’ve ask all students to take their instruments home every day in case we have a snow day.

 

I will be staying after school on Tuesdays for 6th grade woodwinds and Wednesday for 6th grade brass and percussion starting this week.  7th and 8th graders may stay on Thursdays for extra help.  We will finish at 4:30 and you can pick up your child in the front of the building.

 

I have also spoken to Don Wilson Music in Lexington and they will be selling fold up stands for practice.  They come in Black, Blue, Green and Pink.  You may send in 10.00 to order.  I will run it through the school account so you can make checks to HCMS.

Let me know if you would like to order one.

 

Check the dates for the rest of the year on the back of this letter.  We need to finish strong!!!!
