We are using a new student behavior management/ motivation program called Classcraft.  It allows students the ability to customize a character and receive "experience points" for doing well in the classroom as well as "hit points" when they have areas that need improvement.  Look for an information hand-out to be sent home this week.  You can also visit www.classcraft.com or download a copy of the handout here
Here is the Shazimo Music YouTube Channel!!! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3MdmzaC_D5sqze3MAjGU5A
 All students are expected to have the necessary supplies to keep their instrument in playing condition. This includes reeds, valve or side oils, cork grease and drum sticks.  RECOMMENDED (but not necessary) are cleaning supplies, drum pads, stick bag and stand. NO CHILD WILL BE DENIED PARTICIPATION IN BAND IF THEY CANNOT AFFORD THESE SUPPLIES, please see Mr. Sensor privately to discuss options.
Supplies can be ordered online at Spotts Music and delivered for free to our school.  They can also be purchased at their retail store.
