Monday Practice Sessions

Hello 6th grade parents,

We are extremely excited to begin our Monday afternoon practice sessions! This is a once a week practice time available for all sixth grade students.  It is a great opportunity for some extra individual attention, whether it is for a student who feels behind or a student who would like an extra challenge.  This is also a wonderful practice opportunity for students who share school instruments.

We will begin these Monday practice sessions this upcoming Monday the 24th, and will continue on until the end of our school semester. The plan is to keep this going year round! Students are asked to report to the band room after school. They will practice and rehearse with Ms. Menendez and possibly other instructors until 4:15.  The band student pickup will be in the bus loop by the gym door.  Ms. Menendez will walk all of the students outside and wait with them until their ride has arrived.  Please make sure that if your student is going to stay after, that they have a ride home.

We really encourage your students to participate! Not only can they learn to play their instrument at a higher level, but they can learn to work as a team and teach each other as well.

Your 6th grade students have exceeded our expectations so far this semester.  They are a wonderful, hardworking and kind group that is a joy to teach every day. Thank you for all that you do.
