This post does not apply to virtual students.
All band members are now being assigned weekly practice reports. These will have a significant impact on your child's grade, so please read carefully:
Practice reports are handed out on the last day of each school week.
They are due back on the last day of the following school week.
Students are expected to practice for a minimum of 50 minutes per week. Each minute is worth 1 point. I recommend 10-15 minutes per day, and then making up for missing minutes on the weekend.
If a student is unable to practice (sick, instrument in the shop, etc.) Please write me a little note on the report, sign it, and turn it in on time. This is the only way for them to be exempt.
Reports can be turned in late for half credit.
Students may practice for extra bonus points. I will give up to 50 bonus points for 50 extra minutes per week. (So they can turn in one with 100 minutes total and get 50 bonus)
Reports will not be graded, or considered "on time" without a parent/guardian signature. Please be looking for these before the last day of each week.
Your child has a practice report due next Friday, October 16th
If you have any questions or concerns, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks, and have a great weekend!
