Meet&Greet 3/5/20 FBHS Bandroom 7pm
Dear Parents and Students,
We are experiencing unprecedented times. Let me explain to you how I am going to handle school from home plans.
1. Please make certain you are on my remind page. text 81010 to @36da6f.
2. Please certain you are signed up for our gmail account which can be accessed through www.fbhsband.org
3. I send out messages on our facebook page Flowery Branch High School band
4. Please be certain you can access your charms account. If you can't, send me an email and I will get it working.
We are to have fine arts assignments on Tuesday and Thursday this week. I have already set up a written assignment on the canvas page that will be available at midnight tonight. It is a simple written assignment due Tuesday by midnight. If you are not enrolled in the canvas class, please email me at email@example.com.
I will be assigning a recorded assignment through the Charms platform that will be due Thursday. I will continue to work on Canvas exploring possibilities for recording opportunities in the event you have trouble with Charms. Stay tuned for any updates.
We are making a plan for my child to have a routine at home for "schools from home" days. I would recommend you do the same. Have a designated time each day that you spend on each subject area....including practicing your instrument....that is why I had you take it home. If you have questions about the music you are practicing, email me. I will be checking often. IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT YOU MAKE THIS A HABIT WHILE WE ARE UNDER THESE CIRCUMSTANCES. If there is some thing you don't have, let me know and I will scan it and send to you.
When you are given an assignment, it is imperative that you turn it in on time. I will try to be expedient about entering grades. I will be working today on updating my gradebook up to this past Friday.
Please remember that there is a reason that we doing to school from home and why we have engaged in this practice on digital learning days. Please stay home, do your work, and stay healthy. Usually I determine your grades based on class participation and music progress. Without class participation, I only have these on line assessments. You must complete everything i send to you.
Stay home, stay vigilant, wash your hands often, and I will be in touch.
Furthermore, if you have questions about music that you need to speak with me in person about, we can skype one on one. Once I figure that out, we can make that happen if needed. Once I determine this platform, I will give you times that I will be available for this.
I will be in touch via IC. facebook, gmail, and charms
