Copies of class syllabi for Concert Band, Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble and Jazz Band can be found on the ‘Forms’ page under ‘Student Forms.’ Students should have all received a paper-copy of the syllabus in class last week. The back page needs to be signed and returned by Monday, Sep. 12.
Why does the syllabus need to be signed?
The syllabus contains critical information about concert dates and grading policies. Parents have a DIRECT IMPACT on their students’ grades by assuring that their son/daughter has a functioning instrument to use in class everyday. Also, please be sure to cross-check your calendars now so that no concert will be missed. Concerts are considered exams and the impact to a student’s semester grade for missing a concert is quite severe. Much grief and agony can be prevented by taking action now. On behalf of the band “team,” I would like to thank every family for taking a few moments to do this now.
