Knight Band Notes- Beginner Band 4/3/20
Quote of the Week: “Don’t think about what can happen in a month. Don’t think about what can happen in a year. Just focus on the 24 hours in front of you and do what you can to get closer to where you want to be.”
Where are You?!? Please log into Google Classroom!
If you have not logged into the GoogleClassroom, please respond to a band director so we can know how to help you. Soon, the district will be taking grades (in all classes) and want to fix the issues now before it becomes a crisis.
If you didn’t get your instrument yet. Please email Mrs. Embry! She will set up a time to meet you at KLMS to pick it up! email@example.com
