We hope everyone is healthy and enjoying time at home, getting outside to enjoy this beautiful weather. Her are some updates as we are closing out week one of digital learning:
1. Students should have the "routine" down. Each day, a short assignment is posted on the digital learning page. Students decide how to best log their work: either a notebook, word doc, etc. not turning it in. On FRIDAY: the cumulative assessment for the entire week will be collected, posted as the Friday assignment. This is where you may want to reference your work from the week. If you have questions, please email a director. This is the one and only item you need to turn in at this point for each week.
2. Going forward: if you do not have an instrument at home, you may want to strongly consider reaching out to a music store to rent one (call them before you try to visit). We are going to begin posting more performance/playing checks that students will need to submit videos to a director. Assignments for next week will include performance based materials. Be prepared to upload a Flipgrid video soon. We can't wait to hear you make music again!!
3. Trip updates: From our district and administration:
As many of you have seen, CCSD has canceled all trips for the remainder of the school year. This means that all of the music department spring trips here at Dickerson have been cancelled. The music department is communicating with our travel companies and individual vendors to see what our options are for any refunds. Please be patient, and we will communicate as soon as we have answers. Thank you for your understanding.
4. We wish everyone the best and hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. Please feel free to reach out for any resource guides or questions. We miss making music with our students!!
