Students’ overall quarterly grades are based on their Lessons grade (25%), Rehearsals grade (25%), and Assessments/Concerts grade (50%). Students receive 100 points for every rehearsal and lesson they attend, and every student is required to bring their instrument, music and a pencil to every lesson and rehearsal. When a student does not bring his/her instrument to a rehearsal, 50 points will be subtracted from that rehearsal grade. When a student does not bring a pencil or his/her music, 5 points will be subtracted from that rehearsal/lesson grade. If a student does not bring his/her instrument to a lesson that student will be directed to go back to class and make up the lesson at a later time at the discretion of the band teacher.
