Dear RES 5th Band Parents,
The November lessons schedule has been posted. Please note that because of election day on November 6th, lessons will shift one day later in the week beginning next Wednesday.
The students are doing great! Many of the groups have learned a few songs, such as Mary Had A Little Lamb, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, and Lightly Row. Please ask your children to play for you and show you what they are learning! It's a wonderful opportunity for them to perform at home!
As always, the lessons schedule will also be posted to my RES teacher page, and to schoology for the students to access through their schoology account.
Some of you have asked about schoology as a parent - I honestly am not sure - I do know that you should have access to see all of their courses as a parent - Band is listed as a course. I believe that parent codes were sent home via mail from the district in the beginning of the year. From what I understand, this is different than when your child's homeroom teacher sends you a code for communication with that particular class.
I have been posting videos about instruments and some information for the students on schoology. They all have access to it through their schoology login, and some have participated in class discussions. Please know that anything listed as an "assignment" for them on schoology from me is not an assignment - it is an invitation to participate. I can only send these types of videos and postings by labeling it as an "assignment."
Thank you, and your children are doing a great job so far!
