    BAND INFORMATION 2020-2021

     

     Back to School Night Slide

    Lesson Schedule
    - Students will be pulled out of an academic class to attend a 30 minute lesson once per week.  They are responsible for making up missed work.
    - Lesson will occur on a google meet for virtual students and in person for hybrid students. 
     
    Before School Band Rehearsals-  Great news!  The Board of Education approved our co-curricular band rehearsals to occur virtually this year!  Your child will attend BOTH a before school rehearsal and a small group lesson during the school day each week. 
     
    Schedule for the before school band rehearsals:
    - All rehearsals will occur VIRTUALLY from 8:30-9:20 AM and the meet link will be posted in the band google classroom.
    Tuesday OR Wednesday morning before school (choose 1).  (I expect that students in cohort 1 will attend band on Wednesday so that they can remain home for their virtual school day after the band rehearsal.   Students in cohort 2 should attend on Tuesday.  Those families who chose the fully virtual model may choose either day.)
    Optional Friday.  The Friday session is intended to be an extra help session and students can sign on as needed.  Those students who are signed up for chorus with Dr. Bell will not be able to attend this session and should attend chorus. 
     
    Assignments and Practice Expectations
    - Students will be expected to use google classroom to receive and turn in assignments.
    - Students should plan to develop a DAILY practice routine for at home practice and they will be expected to record that practice time on a practice record.  20 minutes every day or 140 minutes per week is the expectation.
