Tuners and Contact Mics
We strongly encourage all band students to have their own Korg TM-60 tuner and a contact microphone. If you ordered your child's supplies in 6th grade through one of our vendors, then your child should already have this item.
If not, it can be easily ordered through Amazon. Click the button below!

Scale Golf Leaderboard
Scale Golf is open to Remote Students via Zoom or before/after their sectionals in person. More details are in an announcement in the Honors and Symphonic Bands Canvas.
Honors/Symphonic Band Objective Assignments
In band, students complete weekly recording assignments for a test grade. These assignments are referred to as 'objectives.'
Each nine-weeks, students in Honors and Symphonic bands are given an objectives sheet that lists every graded recording assignment and the due date for the entire term. Honors Band began objectives last week, and Symphonic band will begin very soon.
All assignments must be submitted through Canvas. Due to schedule and facility limitations, students cannot complete objectives in person with a director.
If there are multiple assignments in a particular week, the grades are averaged together before submitting to Skyward. In Skyward, there is only one weekly test grade for objectives.
Students must submit an objective by the due date for full credit consideration. However, students are allowed to re-submit objectives as many times as they like for a better grade prior to the end of the nine-weeks grading period.
More information can be found on the students' objectives sheet. Students with limited technology access at home can come to the band hall before or after school to submit assignments.
Band Hall exterior door is still CLOSED. Please direct your students to Door #4.
All Remote students MUST do a daily attendance check in Canvas to receive attendance credit for each day.
Remote+ Drop-Off and Pick-Up Times
