HOW DOES THIS WORK FOR BAND?
The most important thing to me is that you continue your time in Band. It is great for college applications and for your general overall wellbeing.
I will let you know if you are eligible for the next level (i.e. Band/Guard/Percussion 2,3,4). Most students will move up a level and some will not.
Those who do not move up a level may continue to earn credit for band but can take the Beginning Band class (in other words, DON'T QUIT!)
Those that have a legitimate conflict with Marching Band will take Beginning Band for 1 credit.
If you are interested in the courses below please let me know. We must have enough students sign up in order to make it a class.
