Good Afternoon WONDERFUL 4th Grade Parents!
This is just a reminder that your child will be starting to learn recorder with me this semester. If your child stated that they will be bringing their recorder from home, they need to make sure that it is packed in their backpacks THIS WEEK. If they ordered one from me, I will be passing them out when they come to my class!
Here is how they will be graded for PARTICIPATION in my class during this Unit:
Times recorder is forgotten:
0 = E
1 = E (verbal warning given and WARNING Recorder Grading Policy Note sent home)
2 = S (Specials Conduct & Participation Report sent home, participation grade is changed and Recorder Grading Policy Note sent home)
3 = S (verbal warning given and WARNING Recorder Grading Policy Note sent home)
4 = N (Specials Conduct & Participation Report sent home, participation grade is changed and Recorder Grading Policy Note sent home)
5 = U (Specials Conduct & Participation Report sent home, participation grade is changed and Recorder Grading Policy Note sent home)
*The grade change will be for PARTICIPATION not conduct!
If their recorder is lost or stolen, please send a note signed by you, the parent/guardian, letting me know what has happened to it so I can make arrangements for them to get another one. If no note is brought, I will assume that it has just been forgotten and their grade will be changed accordingly.
If your child is new to our school this semester and did not order a recorder last semester, please contact me ASAP and we can make arrangements for them to borrow one!
I am looking forward to a GREAT semester and I can’t wait to hear the beautiful music your children will make! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via e-mail at email@example.com or by phone at 281-357-3060 EXT 4675.
