Congratulations to our newest Bronze medalists! These students have earned 100 points in Band Olympics.
Practice Logs Reminders
Please make sure you are helping your student with their weekly practice log. As a reminder, this is a weekly grade. To earn full credit, we ask that students practice a minimum of 20 minutes a night at least 6 nights a week.
Each Sunday, students must total their practice minutes for the week and have a parent/guardian sign for the week. Then, each Monday in class, those logs are checked and a grade is assigned.
This is an easy way for students to be rewarded for routine practice. It is also a way to help encourage your students to establish a regular practice regime at home.
Stay in Band!
Last week, the counselors and teachers at Killian presented information to current 6th and 7th grade students about course sign-ups for the 2022-2023 school year. This week, students will input their initial course requests into Skyward.
We strongly encourage all students to stay in band! Each year of band is a new, exciting experience. Also, with each year comes more experience and familiarity! There are so many benefits to staying in band.
Attached below is a presentation we shared with all 6th grade band students last week. We encourage all families to check it out.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to Ms. Lenhard or Mr. Ousey. Furthermore, if your child is on the fence about band next year, we ask that they meet with us first to make sure they have all the information necessary to make the most educated decision possible.
