Dear HC Band Family,
Thank you all for a great 1st week! The HC Band classes rolled with very few hitches and were very productive for the most part during the first 3 days!
A few reminders before the weekend:
- FCPS has a support line if you need technology Help:
Student Tech Support will help with accounts, Chromebooks, and any other technology issues beginning August 24.
Monday – Friday ~ 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM
- I’m going to try to finalize instrument rental distribution next week, but many missed the message about communicating your needs with us last week. Please complete the following form for instrument rentals before next week. If you have a horn at home, please use it when we begin playing.
- We had a few schedule issues, so please contact your counselor or me if you need help and we’ll get you into the correct places.
- Remember, ADV Marching Band will meet for the 1st time next Monday, August 31st at 1:00 PM! Several members who enrolled in the spring Google Class do not have ADV Marching Band on their IC schedule yet. Students can access the class in Canvas only after they have enrolled in 0 hour ADV Marching Band. I can help add this class with your counselor if needed. Please email counselors to add TODAY! ADV Marching Band includes ALL Color Guard, Percussion, Woodwinds, and Brass! See you Monday at 1:00 PM! Can’t wait!
- Please remember to keep our Zoom Live Class links secure and private. Do not share the links with anyone for security purposes. We have not had any unexpected guests and I’d like to keep it that way : )
- Students should establish a strong, positive, productive routine each day and start by entering their Canvas homepages to check on each class every day. This will help them organize. I understand that the biggest life skill needed at this age is organization skill and I will do my best to help all students. I have a long and storied past struggling with organization myself when I was young and would be glad to help share strategies.
- Please reach out if I can help. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I hope everyone has a safe and restful weekend! Thanks to you all for your support of the Blue Devil Band Family!
