 6th Grade band members must attend this rental meeting with at least one guardian.  Rental prices are listed on the Music & Arts hand out, and the representative will be discussing rental agreements and accepting payment. If using a credit card, the cardholder must be present.

 Additionally, all band members who already have an instrument must make sure it is in proper working condition.

 Lockers

            Instrument lockers in the band room will be assigned to every band member. Locks for the lockers are highly recommended in order to provide security for instruments and other band member possessions. Locks and combinations/keys to locks are the responsibility of the band member.

 Progress Reports

            The Band Progress Report for each quarter displays the playing/written test assignments and due dates, as well as teacher’s comments about their progress. Every student is also required to maintain a practice record of a minimum of 7 hours per quarter.  These should be reviewed with your student on a regular basis.
