•        Hello Band Members and Parents.

                                                                                 WELCOME TO THE 2022-2023 SCHOOL YEAR

    Band Grade 5-8

    Students will have the option of performing their playing assessment in person in class or recording them at home and uploading to their CANVAS page. ALL ASSIGNMENTS ARE DUE ONE WEEK FROM WHEN THEY POST TO CANVAS. If a student does not turn in their assignment by the due date, they will have to play it in class on the day it is due. Students are allowed multiple attempts to show mastery of the skill, but they first have to complete the assignment by the due date.


    Please locate your grade level on the left-hand side of the page to get updated information about each class.
